HALF TIME: Atalanta 0-0 Ssc Napoli

All level at Atalanta in a game of few chances so far. Atalanta have generally had the better of the play but have only seriously troubled Napoli a couple of times who's main concern from the half will be the condition of their starting goalkeeper Ospina who received a gash to his head when dealing with an Atalanta free kick. 0-0. 
19:163 months ago

42' Headed off the line.

 

By their own player!

Gomez delicately chips the ball in for it to be met by Zapata who heads towards the far post where Rafael Toloi was waiting only for the defender to  inadvertently stop the ball from going into the net, Toloi  was adjudged to have been offside. 

19:123 months ago

38' First test for Pierluigi Gollini.

Gomez hits an inswinging effort from the set piece towards the far post which is once again greeted by the stretching arms of Ospina. The goalkeeper appeared to be caught in the aftermath and is currently receiving treatment.
