Atalanta vs Napoli Full Match Reports
Walter Mazzari marked his return to SSC Napoli with a triumphant 2-1 victory in his debut game of his second tenure, orchestrating a comeback against Atalanta BC at the Gewiss Stadium in Serie A (SA).
The match had a subdued opening half-hour that suddenly ignited in favor of Napoli. Amir Rrahmani, unfortunately, had his goal disallowed for offside after heading in Giacomo Raspadori’s cross. Shortly after, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia seized the opportunity to nod in a tantalizing delivery from captain Giovanni Di Lorenzo, putting Napoli in the lead with his second goal in as many games against Atalanta.
The hosts emerged aggressively in the second half, and Ademola Lookman, who had previously scored their lone goal in last season’s head-to-head clashes, leveled the score with a deft header from Éderson’s well-placed cross. Lookman, a constant threat, has now contributed to four goals in his last five SA games. Atalanta believed they had turned the tide with Mario Pašalić’s goal from a through pass, but once again, the offside flag intervened, disallowing the goal.
Separated by just a point before the match, Napoli and Atalanta engaged in a topsy-turvy battle. Napoli reclaimed the lead with 10 minutes remaining, with two substitutes combining effectively. Elif Elmas neatly tapped home Victor Osimhen’s pass, the latter making a timely return from injury under the guidance of the new coach Mazzari. Meanwhile, Gian Piero Gasperini witnessed his team suffer a fourth consecutive defeat against Napoli, causing them to lose ground in the top-four race, while Napoli ascended to the third position.
Man of the Match: Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (SSC Napoli).
