Usual Atalanta show, beats Napoli and returns to -4 from Inter

This Atalanta never ceases to surprise. Ever since the league started again, the Nerazzurri have always won. After Lazio, the champions of the Napoli Italian Cup also surrendered to the Nerazzurri goal machine.

After a first of substantial balance, where the only shock was due to the bad injury remedied by Ospina , in the second half the 'Goddess' won the game thanks to a greater physical brilliance.

A bit like what happened against Lazio. Atalanta started slowly but then crushed opponents at a distance, when they couldn't take it anymore.

But let's take a step back to talk about Ospina 's injury. The Napoli goalkeeper was overwhelmed by Caldara after a clash between the Atalanta defender and Mario Rui on the developments of a corner kick for the Nerazzurri.

Ospina remained on the ground for four minutes, lost a lot of blood, and was taken off the field on a stretcher by the Napoli health workers. Of course he will have to undergo further medical tests because he doesn't mess with headshots.

The injury is practically identical to that suffered by the Colombian goalkeeper against Udinese last year. In that case it is a vagal crisis.

In the second half Atalanta went on to win the game with goals from Pasalic and Gosens. Pasalic was forgotten by Napoli's defense and scored from two steps on Gomez's cross from the right.

Gosens has finalized a beautiful action created by Atalanta marking his ninth league goal. His diagonal with the left has beaten Meret after a close look at Toloi.

Thanks to this success, Atalanta mortgages the qualification for the next Champions League and returns to less than four from Inter third in the standings.

Despite the heavy defeat of Bergamo, Napoli still remains firmly in the Europa League area (participation in the competition already guaranteed by the success in the Italian Cup).
