At the Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo, on the thirteenth day of Serie A, Atalanta beat Roma by 4-1 in a comeback.
In the first half, Roma got off to a strong start, which in the 3 ‘is already ahead: Ibanez throws Mkhitaryan on the left-wing, the Armenian frees himself and crosses low in the area for Dzeko, who stops and beats Gollini with a left low shot. Five minutes pass and the Giallorossi are close to doubling, with Spinazzola overtaking Gollini with a lob on the way out and hitting the outside post of the Nerazzurri goal. After a first part of the time favourable to the guests, Atalanta moves forward with constancy, trying especially with Malinovskyi, but never really getting close to scoring, while the Giallorossi relies on the counterattack.
The second half opens again with Gasperini’s team in attack, with a good chance again for Malinovskyi, while Roma shows up with Veretout, whose right-footed Gollini is ready to be rejected. At 59 ‘comes Atalanta’s equalizer: Ilicic serves Zapata with a through ball and the Colombian striker throws a powerful right that takes the inside crossbar and bags behind Mirante. A few minutes pass and Atalanta goes 3-1: in the 70th minute Gosens scores, anticipating Mirante, and in the 73rd minute Muriel scores the trio on the counterattack. The poker of the robotics arrives at 86 ‘, thanks to the magic of Ilic, who after having packaged two assists scores after a slalom in good style.
