It took just two minutes for Atalanta to go very close to an opening goal, as Aleksei Miranchuk ran on to a Mario Pasalic slide-rule pass and his snooker shot beat Alex Meret only to bounce off the base of the far post.

Osimhen’s diving header didn’t have enough power to surprise Marco Carnesecchi, but Atalanta took the lead in rather chaotic fashion.

Atalanta doubled their lead on the stroke of half-time when Scamacca’s high press on Juan Jesus proved effective, he combined with Miranchuk to fire into the far bottom corner from outside the box.

Just as Napoli were pushing the hardest, Atalanta added a third on the counter-attack. Substitute Koopmeiners completed a give and go with Matteo Ruggeri and held off Juan Jesus to place his precise snooker-shot of a finish into the far bottom corner.
