Baku, October 2, AZERTAC
Juventus and Atalanta fell further behind the Serie A leaders as they played out a 0-0 draw on Sunday, according to AP.
Both teams had chances and Atalanta hit the woodwork but neither could find the breakthrough in Bergamo.
Juventus remained fourth, four points behind second-place AC Milan and Inter Milan at the top after seven rounds. Atalanta is a point behind Juventus.
Both Atalanta and Juventus were in form heading into Sunday’s match. Atalanta had won its last three matches in all competitions without conceding a goal, while Juventus had three victories in its past four matches.
There were few chances in a tight first half. Davide Zappacosta should have given Atalanta the lead in the 14th minute but his first attempt was blocked by Juventus defender Danilo and he fired the rebound wide of the right post from close range.
Juve’s best chance came early in the second half when Federico Chiesa’s fierce attempt was palmed away by Atalanta goalkeeper Juan Musso.
Romelu Lukaku was again on target to set Roma on its way to a vital victory.
Jose Mourinho’s team was in crisis after just one win in its six league matches and had lost 4-1 at promoted Genoa midweek.
Riccardo Orsolini scored a hat trick to fire Bologna to a 3-0 win over hapless Empoli.
Albert Guðmundsson almost scored a first-half hat trick but Genoa was held to a 2-2 draw at Udinese after a stoppage-time own-goal.
