Duvan Zapata sees it as ‘a big step forward’ for Atalanta to conquer the Allianz Juventus Stadium with a clean sheet.
The Colombian international seems to really love facing Juve, as he was on target again this evening, his eighth goal against them in all competition.
“I want to give my best in every game, we played really well today against a strong team,” Duvan Zapata told DAZN.
“We caused them huge problems in the first half, while after the break we went a bit too deep, but what matters is that we brought home the victory.”
Unlike the 3-3 midweek Champions League draw at Young Boys, Atalanta seemed solid in defence this evening.
“So many times recently we conceded in the closing stages, so this is a big step forward for us to win and keep a clean sheet in a fixture like this.
“It is a tough league, there are many different types of games. It was important we keep a clean sheet against a strong side like Juve and Atalanta hadn’t won here in Serie A for many years.”
Considering Atalanta’s strength in depth, can they try to go all the way in Italy and Europe this season?
“The aim is to win, taking it one game at a time, in Serie A and the Champions League.”
