Atalanta once again have made a turnaround from defeat to victory as the highest scoring Serie A club stuns Lazio with a comeback.

Atalanta comeback as they cause damage to Lazio’s title hopes

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.
