The editorial team of SportMediaset has drawn up the report cards for the Atalanta-Napoli match, many shortcomings for the Azzurri.
The report cards
Gomez 7.5 – Papu’s sumptuous performance, which drives Napoli players crazy. In the first half his conclusions are more dangerous, then in the second half Pasalic serves the assist (the 15th) for the goal that breaks the balance. It is like wine, the older it gets, the better it gets.
Gosens 7 – He is a full back by profession, but scores as an attacker. The ninth league goal breaks Napoli’s legs. He is the best interpreter of the role in Serie A.
Pasalic 7 – The king of insertions is also confirmed against Napoli. Papu’s assist is a chocolate to be discarded, the head twist is worthy of a battering goal.
Ospina 6.5 – His game lasts only 25 ‘, then a clash with Mario Rui knocks him out. In the meantime he had earned the loaf by saying twice no to Gomez’s attempts from distance.
Lozano 6.5 – On an evening to forget, the Mexican striker confirms the signs of awakening of recent times and gives a bit of panache to the attack. A couple of initiatives stopped by Gollini.
Mertens 5 – An evening to forget for the Belgian striker. A shot to the side after 10 ‘and then nothing. Gattuso removes it at the beginning of the second half to give space to Milik.
