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. 
19:16a year 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. 

19:12a year 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.

18:51a year ago
17' Chances at both ends. Firstly for Napoli as Senegalese centre back Kalidou Koulibaly heads just over from a cute cross from Politano. 


It is then the turn of Atalanta captain and talisman Alejandro Gomez​​​​​​​ hitting a venomous effort from range forcing Ospina to tip the ball around the post.

18:42a year ago


8' Offside goal! Napoli are the first team to put the ball in the back of the net courtesy of Dries Mertens but the referee had already stopped play for offside, it was a very easy decision.
