The victory against Bologna and the unexpected fall of Vecchia Signora against Udinese, keeps the fight for Scudetto alive.
Unthinkable scenario, but possible. When Juventus seemed on track to sentence the A series in his favor after the restart of the championship, a series of adverse results, plus the good streak of Atalanta, keep the definition in suspense.
Date 35 of Calcio left the surprise defeat of Maurizio Sarri’s team at the hands of Udinese, which added to the victory by the minimum of those of Bergamo against Bologna, leave open the possibilities for ‘La Diosa’ to snatch the title from the from Turin.
What must happen for this? Juve has 80 points and Atalanta comes with six less with nine units to play. On date 36, which will begin this Friday, July 24, the Nerazzurri will open the day visiting no less than Milan. The Bianconeri for their part will play on Sunday, receiving Sampdoria, with the advantage of knowing the result of their rivals for the crown.
Those of Gasperini will have to give the best of their football to win the remaining three games (Parma and Inter close their calendar) and hope that Juve continues to stumble, either against Samp, Cagliari or Rome to overcome them. In case Atalanta falls in San Siro, Juventus will be able to shout champion for the ninth consecutive time.
In an eventual tie of points between the two, the advantage will be in favor of Cristiano Ronaldo and company, because in the direct confrontation, he won one match (3-1) and equalized the other (2-2). It is here when Atalanta regrets the draw against Hellas Verona, although with his scoring power with Duván Zapata, Luis Fernando Muriel and Josip Ilicic he has all the arguments to continue fighting.
