Juventus 0-1 Atalanta: Federico Chiesa and Weston McKennie limp off as troubled Serie A giants slump to defeat the day after club offices were raided by Italian police with Duvan Zapata scoring winner for visitors











Federico Chiesa and Weston McKennie limped off as Juventus slumped to defeat the day after Italian police searched the offices of club in Turin and Milan amid a probe into transfer dealings.

The hosts struggled to create any openings of note in the first half, with their defending not up to the required standard either as they left Duvan Zapata free to fire home in the 28th minute.

Juve failed to offer much of a response in pursuit of an equaliser, with Paulo Dybala’s late free-kick that clipped the crossbar as close as they came to a leveller. 

Atalanta held on in relative comfort and stretched their unbeaten run to eight games in all competitions to stay fourth on 28 points, four points behind leaders Napoli and seven points ahead of Juve who are 11 points off the pace after a fifth defeat in 14 Serie A games.
