Atalanta struck a blow this Sunday afternoon, going to win on the lawn of AS Roma (1-0). Buoyed by this victory, the Bergamo club temporarily took the lead in Serie A, thanks to the second goal of Scalvini's career in Serie A. Totally lonely full axis near the surface, the shot rolled up of the defender repositioned then midfielder, for whom it was the first tenure of the season, hit the mark (1-0, 35th).
But if the team of Gian Piero Gasperini could have doubled the bet without a rescue from Abraham (61st), it was above all heroic behind, as the Romans had opportunities to equalize. The Louve players got themselves many clear situations, like their three huge opportunities at the end of the first period (42nd, 45th, 45th + 2).
Entering the game in place of Musso, hit in the head, Sportiello shone in the Atalanta goal, and when he was beaten, the goalkeeper was saved by the lack of accuracy in the finish of the Giallorossi. Frustrated and annoyed by these failures as for the decision of the referee not to award a penalty to Zaniolo (55th), José Mourinho was expelled in stride (57th).
Beaten, his training missed the boat and first place in the Italian Championship. A privilege that she therefore left to her host, still undefeated, while waiting for the meeting between AC Milan and Naples in the evening.
