Watch as Atalanta run riot in Empoli with Josip Ilicic’s curler into the top corner, but he failed to complete a hat-trick by missing a penalty.

Ilicic hadn’t found the net so far in Serie A this season, but popped up with two goals at the Stadio Castellani.

The first was completing a give-and-go with Luis Muriel, then he unleashed a trademark left-foot curler into the far top corner.

Federico Di Francesco got one back for Empoli, who were unlucky to see Merih Demiral make two goal-line clearances.

Duvan Zapata made a big impact off the bench, forcing Mattia Viti into an own goal and scoring late on from a Mario Pasalic assist.

Ilicic should’ve had a hat-trick, but ballooned his spot-kick over the bar.
