Coppa: Buffon keeps Atalanta quiet

Gonzalo Higuain scored a precious away goal, but 40-year-old Gigi Buffon was the Juventus hero with a penalty save to beat Atalanta 1-0 in the Coppa Italia Semi-Final.

Plenty to love about Papu

Beyond his dance moves, goals and vibrant personality, Papu Gomez has been a beacon of loyalty to Bergamo, writes Matthew Santangelo.

Prior to arriving in Bergamo in 2014, Alejandro Gomez spent several successful years in Sicily with Catania, who employed plenty of Argentine internationals to form one of the top flight’s most unique and exciting sides.

After leaving southern Italy for a cup of coffee in Ukraine with Metalist Kharkiv for the 2013-14 season, the diminutive attacker couldn’t resist the urge to make a return to old stomping grounds in Italy, this time settling in Bergamo to play for Atalanta.
