Atalanta 0-1 Juventus: Vlahovic fires Juve to victory

Last Updated on 16/05/2024 by

In the final of the Coppa Italia for the 2023–24 season, Juventus triumphed against Atalanta with a 1-0 victory at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on Wednesday night. This victory brought Juventus their first piece of silverware in three years in the competition.

The solitary goal of the match was scored by Dusan Vlahovic for Juventus, who raced through on goal and blasted past goalkeeper Marco Carnesecchi about five minutes into the match. However, the Serbian player came close to scoring a second goal in the middle of the second half, but the goal was declared offside following a review by the video assistant referee.

Although there have been moments during this season when Dusan Vlahovic has been wasteful, his decisive finish has made it possible for Max Allegri to play the type that he enjoys the most, which is packing the defense and fending off Atalanta’s attacks.

Just four minutes into the match, Juventus scored the only goal of the evening while they were playing. Vlahovic was able to sneak by Isak Hien thanks to a deft pass through from Andrea Cambiaso that put him in a one-on-one situation with Marco Carnesecchi. After maintaining his composure, Vlahovic was able to break the tie by putting the ball through the goalkeeper of the Nerazzurri.

The response from Atalanta was rather mild because Juve’s back three were able to effectively control them. Charles De Ketelaere had one shot that was not on target, and Mario Pasalic’s attempt was blocked by the defense. In the first half, that was the only thing that La Dea was able to deliver.

El Bilal Touré was substituted for De Ketelaere immediately following the halftime break by Gian Piero Gasperini. De Ketelaere’s performance was certainly not as impressive as it had been just a few days earlier. Following that, he brought in Giorgio Scalvini, Hans Hateboer, and Alexei Miranchuk at approximately the hour mark respectively.

But despite the addition of four new players, Atalanta was unable to alter the tide of the encounter. In point of fact, La Dea let out a sigh of relief when referee Fabio Maresca rejected Juve’s requests for a penalty penalty for a push on Vlahovic that occurred within the penalty area. Allegri would soon lose his grasp on the situation as a result of the numerous refereeing calls that he came across.

At the 66th minute, Atalanta made a valiant effort to prevent Vlahovic from making a spectacular rush. As a result of a knee injury, Marten De Roon had to be substituted for Rafael Toloi, which caused him to make a selfless sacrifice during the process. While leaving the field, the Dutchman was seen crying, which is an indication that he may have picked up something terrible.

In the 74th minute, Juventus scored once more, this time the goal came from a Cambiaso cross that was converted by Vlahovic. This time, the goal was scored by Juventus. The Serb, on the other hand, was discovered to be offside, and the score remained the same.

Atalanta’s greatest opportunity came from a crisp effort by Ademola Lookman that hit the base of Mattia Perin’s right post. However, Juventus responded with a close-range screamer from substitute Fabio Miretti that caused Carnesecchi’s woodwork to rattle. This was Atalanta’s best chance.

Allegri provided an unexpected spectacle by receiving a red card from referee Fabio Maresca after arguing over an alleged foul committed on Gleison Bremer. This occurred as the match was coming to a close and Juve was getting ready to remove the trophy from the team’s trophy case.

In the meantime, his adversary Gasperini was silently contemplating the fact that his Atalanta team had missed their first opportunity to win a trophy this season. It appeared as though he was the one who was losing the game. One more opportunity will be presented to them the following week when they compete against Bayer Leverkusen in the final act of the Europa League.
