Apparently, Atalanta are in action against Juventus this evening. 

Problem is, we can’t really tell.

Juve’s Coppa Italia clash against La Dea is being played under intense fog, making it extremely hard to tell what’s going on.

In fact, the visibility is so difficult, that the referee needed to use VAR to confirm a clear handball in the penalty box during the first-half.

Juve went 1-0 up earlier in the game thanks to a lovely solo effort from Gonzalo Higuain, before Atalanta were awarded a penalty using the highly controversial VAR system.

Juve defender Medhi Benatia appeared to misjudge and handle a cross into the box, but no one could really tell what happened, unless you really zoomed in.

Still, Gianluigi Buffon, who turned 40 on Sunday, managed to save the tame spot-kick.

Thankfully, Juve decided to don their bright yellow away kit, which means their players are easier to make out.

However, Atalanta opted for their traditional black and blue kid, which meant TV cameras really needed to zoom in to make out who’s who.
