Serie A: Sampdoria surprises Atalanta

On behalf of the 5th day of Serie A, Atalanta Bergamo welcomed on its lawn the formation of Sampdoria in a duel that could seem unbalanced on paper. And yet, at the start of the match, it was the Genoese who were the most dangerous, and saw their good start to the match being rewarded by the opener of the eternal Fabio Quagliarella (37 years old, 13th minute). Dominators throughout the first act, the visitors were not far from widening the gap shortly before the penalty break, but the first scorer of the meeting saw his shot be repelled by Marco Sportiello (45th). Upon returning from the locker room, while we expected a start from the Atalanta players, it was once again the visitors who fit in best in this second act.

The latter even ended up being rewarded by the hour of play through Morten Thorsby who offered the second goal to his team with an overpowered header (59th). Never really returned to his match, the formation of Atalanta saw its star striker Duvan Zapata reduce the gap ten minutes from the end of regulation time on penalty (80th). Despite this reduction in the score, it was Claudio Ranieri’s men who had the last word. Jakub Jankto went there from his goal in the last seconds of the meeting and ensured the three points to his team (90th + 1, 1-3). On the other hand, it is a sacred underperformance for Gasperini’s men who nevertheless temporarily retain their 3rd place in the standings.
