Fiorentina achieved a victory in Serie A on Sunday evening. The team of coach Vincenzo Italiano was narrowly too strong for Atalanta at home with 3-2. Teun Koopmeiners was accurate on behalf of the visitors and Marten de Roon provided two assists, but in the end he managed to score la Dea cannot stand. With a few games left in the fourth round, Fiorentina occupies seventh position in the rankings; Atalanta is currently ninth.
The game started well for Atalanta, who took the lead in the twentieth minute of play thanks to Koopmeiners. The midfielder received the ball on the edge of the sixteen-meter area from De Roon and found the bottom right corner with a placed shot: 0-1. Fifteen minutes later, Fiorentina leveled. Nicolás González headed the ball into the box at the feet of Giacomo Bonaventura, who then shot in with conviction: 1-1.
Just as the half-time whistle sounded, the home team struck again. Alfred Duncan delivered a turning cross from the left flank to the head of Lucas Martínez Quarta, who made it 2-1 with a strong header. Atalanta’s answer came seven minutes after halftime. Once again De Roon acted as principal: this time he served Ademola Lookman. The attacker shot into the bottom corner after an agile dribble: 2-2.
In the end, Fiorentina came out on top. After a cross from the left, Michel Adobo, Koopmeiners’ replacement, incomprehensibly worked the ball into his own box at the feet of Christian Kouame, who slid in the decisive 3-2 from close range.
