Atalanta once again have made a turnaround from defeat to victory as the highest scoring Serie A club stuns Lazio with a comeback.
A header from Jose Luis Palomino 10 minutes from time completed a stunning turnaround as Atalanta came roaring back from two goals down to beat Lazio 3-2 on Wednesday and damage the Roman side’s Serie A title hopes.
An own goal by Marten De Roon put Lazio in front after five minutes and midfielder Milinkovic-Savic soon chanced up on a loose ball just outside the area and curled in a brilliant effort to make it 2-0.
Atalanta got back into the game just before halftime when Hans Hateboer’s cross found Robin Gosens as he headed one brilliantly into the net, and Ruslan Malinovsky struck a superb equaliser from outside the box midway through the second half.
Palomino’s header from Alejandro Gomez’s corner completed a brilliant comeback and left Atalanta fourth on 54 points after 27 games following the clash of the two highest-scoring teams in the Italian top flight at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri.
Lazio with 62 points now trail four points behind Serie A table leaders Juventus.
