Juventus were unable to break down a stubborn Atalanta defence as both teams settled for a 0-0 draw at the Gewiss Stadium.

Atalanta kept a fourth consecutive clean sheet at home in a game that promised much but delivered little.

How it happened

Both sides kep things very tight in the opening exchanges, with chances were few and far between. 

Atalanta eventually found a chance through Davide Zappacosta but the ex-Chelsea man dragged his shot just wide of the post. 

Juventus started to grow into the game but couldn't find a breakthrough as both teams went into the break at nil-nil.

Nicolo Fagioli was first to test Juan Musso with a curling effort that the Nerazzurri goalkeeper palmed to safety. 

Atalanta substitute Luis Muriel almost produced the magic spark with a thunderous 25-yeard free-kick that was heading into the top corner, until a full-stretch Wojciech Szczęsny tipped the strike onto the crossbar.
