Atalanta’s adaptation neuters Juventus and serves notice to Serie A | Paolo Bandini

Gian Piero Gasperini’s in-game tweaks are one reason his Atalanta side keep recovering from losing positions – and they did it again to draw with Juventus

It should have been all over. Within 25 minutes of Serie A’s Sunday night fixture, Juventus were two goals to the good. What opponent could overcome such a disastrous start against the champs: winners of six consecutive Serie A titles, as well as six consecutive games to begin this season? Who would even dare to fight back against the Old Lady of Turin?

Only the Goddess of Bergamo. Atalanta share their name with Greek mythology’s virgin huntress, and over the past 12 months they have embodied her combative spirit just as well.

Everton’s misery continues with Europa League defeat against Atalanta

Everton produced another hugely disappointing display as they were soundly beaten for the third successive game, this time Atalanta inflicting the damage in their Europa League Group E opener in Reggio Emilia.

Ronald Koeman’s misfiring team went into the match having endured a 2-0 defeat at Chelsea and lost 3-0 at home against Tottenham Hotspur. Koeman, the Everton manager, had warned they would “need to react” in Italy after that last performance.

The Bandinis 2017: an utterly exhaustive review of the Serie A season | Paolo Bandini

From another Scudetto triumph for Juventus to Crotone’s miraculous escape, we revisit Papu Gómez’s armbands, Joe Hart’s gaffes and the grace of Totti

This might have been another year of European heartbreak for Juventus, but domestically it was the same old story. The Bianconeri won Serie A for the sixth consecutive season, and collected their third straight Coppa Italia as well. No team had ever won either trophy so many times in succession. They have made the unprecedented look routine.

And yet, this season was not lacking in drama. To the contrary, there was something wild about this campaign right from the start. There were 32 goals scored (not to mention three red cards) on the opening weekend alone. The final tally of 2.96 per game was highest among Europe’s top five leagues.

From Kasper Dolberg to Naby Keïta – who are the most in-demand players for the summer?

It is not yet April but, with clubs already working hard on securing their main transfer targets for the summer, we look at some of the players who are likely to move when the window opens

Ajax’s production line of Danish talent shows no signs of abating, with Dolberg looking like being the latest to follow in the footsteps of such luminaries as Jesper Olsen, Jan Molby and Christian Eriksen. Manchester City have been monitoring the 19-year-old’s progress for some time and have seen him blossom into a brilliant finisher who is capable of leading the line or playing in a deeper role. Dolberg has also been linked with several other English clubs, including Liverpool, Manchester United and Everton but City look like favourites, especially if Sergio Agüero departs.

Internazionale captain Mauro Icardi scored a perfect hat-trick in 10 first-half minutes and Ever Banega also helped himself to three goals in a 7-1 rout of hapless Atalanta in Serie A on Sunday.
