Atalanta loses first place in the Italian Football League

After a goalless first half, the game accelerated in the last half hour of play and especially when the Belgian Teun Koopmeiners assisted the Turkish Merih Demiral to put the Bergamasco team ahead in the 74th minute.

Just four minutes later, the goalkeeper, Argentine Juan Musso, stopped a shot from his compatriot Santiago Ascacíbar but could not prevent Emanuele Veleri’s goal, who took advantage of the rejection to equalize the match.

This tie stops the streak of three consecutive wins of the club coached by Gian Piero Gasperini, who would take sole leadership in case of achieving the three points.

After the victories of Napoli and AC Milan on Saturday, those two teams and Atalanta have accumulated 14 units, although the Neapolitan squad has the best difference in goals scored and allowed to lead the championship.

In the other matches played on Sunday, Fiorentina lost 1-2 in Bologna and continues a poor run of results (three draws and two losses in the last five games).

Newly-promoted Monza picked up their first point of the season with a 1-1 draw at Lecce and Udinese managed to win 3-1 at Sassuolo to provisionally move up to fourth after four successes in a row.

In addition, Lazio beat Hellas Verona 2-0 and drew 2-2 with Salernitana and continues to be relegated in the tournament. Results of the sixth day:
