Milan 1-1 Atalanta: Draw effectively ends visitors' slim title hopes

Juventus' chances of retaining their Serie A title were boosted after Atalanta could only draw with Milan.

Atalanta's Serie A title chances were dealt a potentially fatal blow as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Milan at San Siro.

With Juventus having lost 2-1 in dramatic fashion to Udinese on Thursday, Gian Piero Gasperini's Atalanta side would have moved within three points of the league leaders with a win.

Yet their hopes were virtually extinguished on Friday – Hakan Calhanoglu's 14th-minute opener proving enough to secure a point for Milan, with Ruslan Malinovskiy seeing a penalty saved for the visitors prior to Duvan Zapata's equaliser.
