Duvan Zapata added to Juventus' woes on Saturday, scoring the only goal in Atalanta's 1-0 victory, which came as the Turin giants were still reeling from a police investigation into their accounts.

Atalanta's hold on fourth place and the final Champions League spot in Serie A was strengthened thanks to Colombian Zapata's seventh goal in as many games in all competitions in the 28th minute at the Allianz Stadium, which he smashed home off the bar after being sent clean through by Berat Djimsiti.

Gian Piero Gasperini's team are tied on 28 points with third-placed Inter Milan ahead of the champions' trip to Venezia later on Saturday, and are only four points behind leaders Napoli and AC Milan, who meet on Sunday.

More importantly, they are six points ahead of Roma, who host Torino, for fourth place, while Juve are a further point behind in eighth after their latest lackluster performance, which resulted in them being booed off the pitch by enraged fans who had just witnessed their team lose for the fifth time this league season.
