Osimhen, Lookman On Target As Napoli Beat Atalanta To Extend Lead At The Top

Victor Osimhen scored and provided an assist while Ademola Lookman was also on target as Napoli beat Atalanta 2-1 in the Serie A on Saturday.

Osimhen has now scored eight goals in nine Serie A games while Lookman’s tally in the Italian elite division is six.

Also, Lookman has netted five goals in Atalanta’s last six league games.

Napoli, on 35 points, stretch their lead over second placed Atalanta to eight points after 13 fixtures played so far in the season.

Atalanta had the first chance on three minutes when Lookman rolled across from the left for Rasmus Hojlund, forcing a one-on-one save from Alex Meret.

Lookman then gave Atalanta the lead on 19 minutes from the penalty spot after Osimhen handled the ball inside the box.

However, Osimhen quickly made up for his mistake by drawing Napoli level on 23 minutes, as he was allowed a free header on a Piotr Zielinski floated cross from a short corner.

Napoli turned it around completely as they went 2-1 up on 35 minutes after Osimhen broke away from Merih Demiral down the right and pulled it back for Eljif Elmas to score from 10 yards.
