Juventus dominates Atalanta Bergamo and wins a 15th Italian Cup

Despite its status as fourth in Serie A, four points ahead of its evening opponent, Atalanta Bergamo (fifth with one game less), Turin did not show up at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome as favorites. The two teams had diametrically opposed dynamics at the start of this Italian Cup final, with Juve remaining in six matches without a victory. Quite the opposite of Atalanta (6 wins and 1 draw in the last 7 matches), who recently qualified for the Europa final.

But the Old Lady managed to defy the predictions thanks to a successful start to the and a goal from Dusan Vlahovic in the 4th minute of play. Launched in depth by Cambiaso, the Serbian striker managed to resist the return of Isak Hien before deceiving Marco Carnesecchi. His 19th achievement of the season in all competitions.

The absence of Scamacca weighed

a disappointing first period, the Dea pushed for a return from the locker room but struggled to destabilize the Bianconeri’s compact defensive block. The Bergamasques could still have come back into the game at the end of the match if Ademola Lookman’s shot had not hit Mattia Perin’s post (80th). Four minutes later, it was Juve’s turn to hit the woodwork through Fabio Miretti, who saw his attempt into the crossbar.

Without incident, the Turinese managed to repel the final attacks of the Dea, whose absence of Gianluca Scamacca, suspended, was strongly felt, to add a 15th Italian Cup to their record. A title which prevents Juve from spending a third season without winning any trophies.
