Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini was full of pride after their 1-0 win at Juventus.

Duvan Zapata struck as Atalanta defeated Juve in a Serie A match for the first time since 1989.

"It was a joy for me, but for the club and the whole city of Bergamo. It was a hard-fought and very physical game, but one Atalanta played at the very least on level terms," Gasp told DAZN.

“Many things were said about Atalanta at the start of this season, but we started well or we wouldn't have 28 points. There were some games that didn't go our way or the points we deserved, but I never saw Atalanta struggling.

“We were in an emergency situation for a while due to injuries, that is true, and other players had to adapt to different roles. It was a setback, but everyone stepped up and delivered.

“Some results, like the home defeat to Milan, made everything look worse than it really was."
