Total treat. This Saturday evening, as part of the 16th day of Serie A, Atalanta Bergamo went to win on the lawn of the Neapolitan leader (3-2) before the kickoff of this lift at the end of a match full of twists and turns. Ruslan Malinovskyi started hostilities very early on the lawn of Diego Armando Maradona stadium (7th). Then Piotr Zielinski, just before the break (40th), and Dries Mertens, returning from the locker room (47th), gave the advantage to Luciano Spalletti’s men.
It was without counting on the self-sacrifice of Merih Demiral, who, eager to redeem himself for his mistake on the previous goal, confirmed, as a real center-forward, the domination of the DEA against a battered Napoli (66th). Remo Freuler offered him the victory to Gianpiero Gaasperini and his family 20 minutes from time (71st) to conclude in style a pleasant match to follow on the other side of the Alps. Consequences of this result: Naples is no longer leader in favor of AC Milan and even goes third after the victory of Inter in Rome a little earlier in the day (3-0). Atalanta, who are two lengths behind their opponent for the day and 4 from Milan, has not said its last word in the title race.
