BERGAMO – Stunning comeback for Atalanta , first stop for Lazio after 21 positive results.
Yet the Biancocelesti had started at one hundred an hour, reaching two to zero after eleven minutes.
From this point of view, it was a race very similar to the first leg. In that case Atalanta moved to three on zero but then was reached by Lazio on 3-3 (also thanks to two penalties that sent Gasperini in a rage …).
Lazio went ahead thanks to a nice counterattack at 5 '. De Roon scored in his goal on a Lazio cross from the right. Shortly thereafter, Luis Alberto leaned on Milinkovic Savic who scored an extraordinary goal from outside the penalty area.
Taken these two punches, Atalanta did not knock out and was able to get up from the ring at Rocky …
From this point of view, the goal signed by Gosens before the end of the first half was important. The Atalanta footballer headed Hateboer's cross.
Atalanta-Lazio, the comeback of the hosts in the second half.
In the second half, Lazio collapsed from a physical point of view while Atalanta, who had one more game in the legs, started to crush the Biancocelesti in their penalty area.
In the second half, Malinovsky drew the balance with a feat similar to that of Milinkovic Savic in the first half of the game. His left, of incredible power, ended his run under the crossbar.
Ten minutes from the end, Lazio fell asleep on the developments of a corner for Atalanta and gave the hosts three points. Palomino, who had already 'executed' Rome this year, scored two passes on Papu Gomez's assist.
Thanks to this success, Atalanta kept Roma at a safe distance and moved to four points from Inter third in the standings. Lazio continue to dream of the Scudetto but now it has slipped to less than four from the league leaders Juventus.
