The Nerazzurri played a practically perfect match against the Neapolitans: a short and careful team in the first half; arrembante and ruthless in the second half. The result was in fact decided at the beginning of the second half, with the one-two signed by Pasalic-Gosens who in 9 ‘actually hit and sunk a Napoli that at Gewiss Stadium was playing everything, and that with this defeat definitively leaves the scene from the race to Europe that counts (at -15).
For Atalanta it is the seventh consecutive victory (which becomes nine if you also count the double triumph in the Champions League round of 16 with Valencia), the seventeenth consecutive game with the attack on the net, with an average goal that continues to touch the three per match. These are impressive numbers, like a great team.
Gollini’s goal has also remained untouched against Napoli: it didn’t happen from Torino-Atalanta 7-0, eight games ago.
Decisive, as we said, the one-two by Pasalic and Gosens trimmed to Gattuso’s men at the start of the second half: the first goal in the 47th minute with a header from the Croatian on assist to the kiss of Papu Gomez (at the fifteenth assist of the season), the second at 56 ‘with a left-sided hit from the side number 8 drawn by a wrong shot by Toloi.
For Atalanta there are three points that are worth like gold, which have the strong flavor of returning to the Champions League.
