Italian League .. Atalanta miss the opportunity to return to the top due to a disappointing draw

Atalanta squandered an opportunity to return to the top of the Italian football league by playing a disappointing 1-1 draw against newcomers Cremonese on Sunday in the sixth stage of the competition.

Merich Demiral scored a goal for Atalanta in the 74th minute of the match, while Emmanuel Valery equalized in favor of the guests in the 78th minute.

With this, Cremonese, returning to Serie A for the first time since 1996, broke a streak of 3 wins in a row for Atalanta, who raised their score to 14 points in second place, losing on goal difference to leaders Napoli, who won 1-0 at home in Spices on Saturday in the opening of this stage of the competition.

And Juventus, eighth with 9 points, will be able to get closer to the top teams if they beat their guest Salernitana later on Sunday in the highlights, with the competition at this stage ending on Monday with Empoli meeting their sixth guest, Roma.
