It was THE shock of this 13th day of Serie A in Italy. The very beautiful poster opposing Naples, leader of the championship, to its runner-up, Atalanta, turned to the advantage of the men of Luciano Spalletti (2-1), decidedly irresistible at the start of the season on the other side of the Alps. , while keeping all its promises.

The former LOSC striker, guilty of a hand fault in his area which allowed Ademola Lookman to open the scoring (19th), then took over a cross from the Macedonian with a header to equalize (23rd).
