Napoli have successfully completed the difficult move to Atalanta Bergamo. It won 1-3 and for the time being comes next to leader Milan at the top of the Serie A. Brand new father Dries Mertens was in the starting line and forced the penalty for the 0-1.
In the exciting title fight in the Serie A, Napoli was not allowed to miss a visit to Atalanta, which itself is also fighting for a European ticket. Before 15 minutes, Napoli took the lead thanks to a penalty from Insigne.
The penalty was forced by Dries Mertens. Last week the Red Devil became a father (son Ciro) for the first time, but despite the little sleep of the past few days, he was given a basic place by coach Luciano Spalletti.
Atalanta had the upper hand in the game, but ran into a second goal when Insigne was able to control Politano. After the break, Marten de Roon brought some hope for Atalanta, but that hope was skillfully dashed by Eljif Elmas.
