Gian Piero Gasperini’s side did not lose their early momentum during the international break, looking fired up at the Gewiss Stadium as they faced a stumbling Fiorentina. Atalanta eventually edged out the win in a hard-fought battle thanks to Lookman’s 59th minute goal, allowing them to keep up pressure on Napoli at the top of the Serie A table.
