New, comments

After Muriel switched on the light bulb of hope, Iličić flipped it back off and Papu (with a lot of help from Lafont) shattered it.

Pre-match

Atalanta manager Gian Piero Gasperini mostly chose his expected XI, with Pierluigi Gollini and Berat Djimisti replacing Etrit Berisha and Gianluca Mancini, respectively. Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Montella picked Kevin Mirallas over Giovanni Simeone and Marco Benassi over Bryan Dabo, but more significantly shifted his formation to a 4-3-3.

First half

Benassi split the defense and found Federico Chiesa in space, and Chiesa played a perfect ball through for Luis Muriel to tap past Gollini for the opener.

The hosts leveled from the spot through Josip Iličić after Federico Ceccherini stuck a leg out and caught Papu Gómez in the area.

Second half

Gómez salted it away with a long, low drive that hit Alban Lafont right in the hands; the Frenchman won’t want to watch this one again as he really toofed it right into his own net.

Full time

Goals: Muriel 3’ (ass. Chiesa), Iličić 14’ (PK), Gómez 69’ (ass. Iličić)

Cards: Ceccherini 16’, Pezzella 72’, Gosens 73’, Mirallas 80’
