Lookman On Target As Atalanta Edge Sassuolo
It was Lookman’s fourth goal in 10 appearances in the Italian elite division.
Also, he has now scored in his last three outings for Atalanta who go top on the log courtesy the win against Sassuolo.
And after 10 league games played so far this season, Atalanta are yet to lose (seven wins, three draws).
They are on 24 points, just one above Napoli who will reclaim top spot if they beat Bologna on Sunday.
And in Saturday’s game Sassuolo broke the deadlock on 41 minutes with a stunning left-foot volley at the back post from Giorgos Kyriakopoulos. That was the first time all season that Atalanta conceded before half-time.
But one minute of first half stoppage time Atalanta were back on level terms, as Consigli flapped at a pull-back from the by-line, Brandon Soppy kept his cool and picked the right pass for Mario Pasalic to sweep home from eight yards.
Barely 20 seconds after the restart, Atalanta turned it around. Soppy was involved again, making an immediate forward pass, where Lookman shrugged off Martin Erlic and curled left-footed into the far top corner.
