Gasperini, still without Zapata, relies on Muriel, supported by Ilicic and Gomez. In midfield Freuler and Pasalic, in defense Palomino wins the runoff with Masiello. Leading the attack by the Venetian Di Carmine, assisted by Pessina and Zaccagni. Verre and Stepinski leave the bench. Immediately high rhythms when starting the game. The first chance is for the Goddess and she is very greedy: Muriel does not exploit a mess between Dawidowicz and Bocchetti, kicking at Silvestri from an excellent position. But to break the deadlock is Hellas: Di Carmine, served by the Pharaohs throw-in, enters the area and beats with a precise Gollini diagonal (23 '). Bergamo protests over the execution of the throw, given the presence of two balls in the field, Valeri validates after the Var's silent check. Then Verona is still threatening with a diagonal of Di Carmine that does not frame the target. Meanwhile, on the Gasperini, the Ilicic tile is raining: the Slovenian, due to a muscular problem, must leave room for Malinovskyi at half an hour. The hosts try to get away, Gomez tries to play the charge among the Nerazzurri and tries with two close conclusions, then before the break Atalanta rebalances the accounts: the signing of Malinovskyi's 1-1 + on pocketed of Muriel tow and from outside the area unload the left where Silvestri cannot reach (44 ').
The second half starts with Atalanta close to the net with Pasalic who is stopped for a corner on Freuler's crossbar. Just the Swiss leaves room for De Roon. The Goddess grows in pressure and meters but on the counterattack the Verona hits again with the complicity of a hole in the atalantina defense: Lazovic puts towards the second pole for the winning slip of Di Carmine, still to sign (58 '). Gasperini's team reacts immediately, Castagne is anticipated at the last minute by Faraoni. But not on a regular basis: the Var clarifies the ideas to Valeri who points to the disk. From the spot goes Muriel who displaces Silvestri for the 2-2 (64 '). Papu still dangerous on two occasions, in both Silvestri is attentive and foils in a corner. Gasperini plays the Barrow card calling Muriel, instead forced change for Juric that replaces the injured Pessina with Verre. The Atalanta presses on the accelerator to chase 3-2, Malinovsky tries from the limit without success. Verona must defend itself against the final assault in ten: Dawidowicz collects the second yellow card for a forbidden hug in Barrow. Silvestri holds up the cabin again opposing Gomez twice, but he must bow in recovery after an action signed by the defenders of the house: on the ball in the middle by Palomino Toloi is side by side for Djimsiti that overcomes the goalkeeper from close range. Feast for the Goddess, a mockery for a Hellas who deserves applause.
