Juventus wins the Italian Cup: Vlahovic’s goal in the 4th minute is decisive, defeating Atalanta

At the Olympic Stadium, Juventus won 1-0 against Atalanta with a goal in the first minutes from their attacker and won the Italian Cup, for the 15th time in the club’s history and after three years without lifting any trophies. Dusan Vlahovic immediately broke the deadlock, following a through ball from Cambiaso, beating Carnesecchi with a right-footed shot in the fourth minute. Atalanta had numerous opportunities to grab the equalizer, then in the 60th minute Gasperini tried to turn the game around by introducing three substitutions and coming close to scoring again. In the 65th minute Marten de Roon left the field in tears due to injury. The Bianconeri had few chances but all were dangerous, until the second goal was canceled out by VAR for offside. In the final minutes, Juve threatened several times on the counterattack, even hitting the crossbar with Miretti. In the 94th minute, in the tension at the end of the match, referee Maresca sent off Massimiliano Allegri who put on a little show, taking off his jacket and tie.

The decisive man

«I can only thank my teammates», said at the end of the match the man who decided it with his goal, «we know all the difficulties we faced and in the end we achieved two objectives, qualification for the Champions League and the Italian Cup. It’s a shame for the Scudetto, but Inter deservedly won it. Now I’m thinking about how to win many more titles. In the last period we were also going badly, but we always gave our best. Next year we must aim to win everything because this is Juventus’ DNA.”
