Atalanta knew Milan in an incredible match with Muriel’s goal-poem!


Muriel drew… a three-pointer with an unimaginable goal in the 95th minute! The Colombian striker, who had come on as a substitute in the match, scored with an improbable backheel in the gaps, showing his immense class and personality to dry up the Milan and give the three points to Atalanta with 3-2!

Shocking match, with the home team leading by 2-0 Luqman and the guests to answer an equal number of times. Nevertheless, Mr Muriel he hadn’t said his last word and with the goal of the year in Serie A, he brought the “Bergamaski” back to winning ways and… on track for the top four (at -1 with more matches). At the same time, Stefano Pioli’s team sees the top move away, since if Inter beat Udinese they will jump to +9 from their compatriot.

First win for her Atalanta at home since December 2019 against AC Milan, with the home side’s four-match run without a hat-trick this season coming to an end.

The game throughout was excellent and developed into a bra-de-fer Luqman with the… forwards of Milan. It was the Nigerian striker who opened the scoring for the hosts in the 38th minute after Kupmeiners’ assist and after De Ketelar earlier missed the chance of the year in Italy, missing from close range in front of an empty net. The half-time looked like it would end with Atalanta in front of the score, but Giroud with a terrific header at 45’+3′ brought it to level (1-1).

Rodeo in the second half of the match as well, with Atalanta succeeding again with Lukman heading the score, with the Nigerian striker making the most of De Ketelar’s excellent creation for 2-1 in the 55th minute. The same player minutes later missed an unimaginable double chance, with Jovic in the 80th minute and after having entered the match a little earlier punishing the inactivity of the opposing defense for 2-2.

The game was heading for a tie, but Calabria’s second booking in the 3rd minute of stoppage time played a pivotal role in the final minutes. And that’s because at 90’+5′, Mirandchuk found Muriel in the area, who against Menian made an incredible backheel and magically sent the ball to rest in the back of the opponent’s goal for the final 3-2.
