Serie A Highlights: Atalanta 2-2 Lazio

La Dea rushed Merih Demiral back, but the injury crisis remained extensive, missing Berat Djimsiti, Rafael Toloi, Robin Gosens, Matteo Pessina and Hans Hateboer, plus suspended Jose Luis Palomino. The Aquile were still without Mattia Zaccagni, but Luis Alberto was given his second consecutive start.

It was all Atalanta in the opening stages, yet Lazio took the lead against the run of play. Demiral failed to cut out a Danilo Cataldi through ball for Ciro Immobile and Juan Musso made a sensational one-handed save, but Pedro followed it up.

On the stroke of half-time, Duvan Zapata got them on level terms, shaking off Adam Marusic to burst down the right and drill in from the tightest of angles.

Pepe Reina smothered a Remo Freuler snapshot from distance and Luiz Felipe needed a well-timed tackle to stop the Duvan Zapata run.

Immobile tested Musso on a quickly-taken Cataldi free kick, the goalkeeper using his legs, and Lazio restored their lead.

Pedro was heavily involved again, sprinting forward from his own half, spreading it down the left for Toma Masic, who set up Immobile to fire into the roof of the net from six yards. It was a special strike, allowing Immobile to equal Silvio Piola as the all-time Lazio top scorer in all competition with 159 goals.

Luis Muriel drilled inches wide from the edge of the box, while Roberto Piccoli hit the side-netting from a tricky angle.

There was tension in the final minutes, with Pepe Reina complaining he’d been struck on the head by an object thrown from the stands.

However, Atalanta got the equaliser, as a corner was taken short, Freuler’s cross flicked on by Demiral for Marten de Roon to score with a well-taken half-volley from 10 yards. Luiz Felipe had backed off too much and given him the space to get the shot away.
