Musa Barrow makes senior debut for Atalanta

Friday, February 02, 2018

Gambia international Musa Barrow has made his senior debut for Atalanta in their 1-0 Coppa Italia semifinal first leg loss to Juventus in mid-week.

Youngster Barrow replaced Cristante in the 76th minute of the game to craft his first-ever senior appearance for Atalanta following his brilliant performance in the club’s youth system.

Gonzalo Higuain scored the only goal for Juventus in the 2nd minute of the game, which eventually proved to be the winner for the Turin giant.

40-year-old goalkeeper Gigi Buffon saved Gomez’s penalty to earn Juventus a slender win over Atalanta.

Barrow joined Atalanta from Gambian top flight side Hawks Football Club in 2016.

Atlanta is currently coached by Gian Piero Gasperini.
