In Serie A, Juventus is the measure of all things. The leaders of Torino have lost 11 points and have not lost any game after 21 days. Accordingly, Juve was again at Coppa Italia as the top favorite on the title. But the fifth win for the consecutive Cup will not help: Juventus lost 0-3 (0-2) from Atalante Bergamo in the quarterfinals.
Timothy Castagne (37th minute) and Duvan Zapata (39th and 86th) scored goals for Bergamo. If Zapata was in the best form, it could be assumed in Juve. Colombian scored 14 goals in the last eight league games and took second place in the Serie A strikers beside superstar Cristian Ronaldo. Ronaldo and his strikers Federico Bernardeschi and Paulo Dybala have failed to reach Bergamo.
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri had to watch most of the matchmaking matches. Having seen the offense at Dybali 2: 0 ago, he strongly protested that Fabrizio Pasqua was dismissed by the referee.
