Álvaro Morata had in the match against Atalanta one of those misses that follow you for a long time. The Spanish striker tried a backheel shot at the least appropriate time.
Juventus welcomed Atalanta in matchday 12 of the Serie A. Juve, fourth in the league, were looking for a win to move closer to top place Milan.
Álvaro Morata, could have paved the way during the first part of the match, but the striker chose badly and executed worse. It was not the right time to try a shot like this.
First, the Spaniard tried to leave the goal on a plate for Cristiano Ronaldo, who would only have to tap it in, but the ball was too short.
And in the rebound, Morata could have scored the first goal into an empty net. He tried to backheel it and missed an effort that will follow him for a long time. He put it wide.
