Juventus beats Atalanta 2-0 ahead of table-topping clash

MILAN (AP) Juventus recorded only its third league win of the season by beating 10-man Atalanta 2-0 on Sunday.

Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic had given Juventus a comfortable lead before Atalanta defender Rafael Toloi was sent off for a second booking, leaving the visitors with 10 men for the final 16 minutes.

Atalanta goalkeeper Marco Sportiello saved a penalty by Paul Pogba shortly afterward.

AC Milan remained a point ahead of Juventus after beating 10-man Sassuolo 2-1, as Gianluigi Donnarumma became the youngest ever goalkeeper to start a Serie A match.

Udinese won 1-0 against Frosinone and Sampdoria beat Hellas Verona 4-1 in the lunchtime kickoff.

Serie A leader Fiorentina hosts third-placed Roma later, while Lazio hosts Torino and Chievo Verona welcomes fourth-place Napoli in the evening match.
