Dusan Vlahovic Produced Dive Of The Season During Juventus' Draw With Atalanta

Dusan Vlahovic produced one of the funniest dives of the season, as Juventus drew 1-1 with Atalanta in the race to finish in the top four in Serie A.

Vlahovic was one of the most talked about players in the January transfer window, with the striker in brilliant form in Italy, scoring 17 goals in 21 appearances for Fiorentina.

Arsenal were desperate to sign the forward, especially as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was on his way out of the club, but the striker was so desperate not to go there he avoided their phone calls.

In the end the 22-year-old went to Juventus, with Arsenal's rivals Spurs helping to finance the move by signing Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur from the Old Lady.

On Sunday, Vlahovic made just his third appearance for Massimiliano Allegri's team, as they faced rivals Atalanta at the Gewiss Stadium.

The striker picked up a yellow card in the first half, for dissent, and might have counted himself lucky for not picking up a second after hilariously throwing himself to the ground.

The only thing in the Serb's favour is the fact that he was soon back on his feet and getting on with the game, rather than rolling around.

It doesn't look like any of the Atalanta defenders get close to him, and there's no other excuse for him to fling himself to the ground, other than looking for a penalty.

The referee didn't buy it of course but it easily could have been Vlahovic's second yellow of the game and that could have influenced the outcome.

A tight match, that saw the hosts have more chances but Juve have the better ones, came to life in the 76th minute when substitute Ruslan Malinovskyi fired in a rocket of a goal.

Despite the fact that a strike that good should be worth two goals, it wasn't enough for the hosts to hang on, as Danilo scored an injury time equaliser.

The result leaves Juventus still above Atalanta in fourth place, in what is likely to be the battle for the final Champions League spot, two points ahead of their rivals.

Atalanta do have a game in hand though and the race for fourth, like in the Premier League, is likely to go down to the wire.
