On the 2020-2021 Serie A TIM matchday 16, the Nerazzurri team get their second straight win of 2021 within a few days at the Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo, as well as the fourth straight win at home. It’s 3-0 over Parma.
The deadlock was broken after 15 minutes: great Iličić through ball for Muriel who beat Sepe with a left-foot finish. The chances in the first half were a few as the two teams conceded very little. In the second half, Zapata took only four minutes to double the Nerazzurri lead with a left-foot angled drive assisted by Gosens. The third goal was scored by Gosens, who was assisted by Zapata, on 61. Mæhle made his Atalanta debut and almost scored on 78 at the end of a nice effort which was blocked for a corner by Sepe and Caldara made his comeback from an injury, almost scoring in the stoppages.
