Vibrant match at the Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo, where Atalanta did not know how to take advantage of or take care of a wide advantage and ended up giving points at home against a Torino that is fighting for permanence in Serie A in Italy.
Luis Fernando Muriel was a starter at the club led by Gian Piero Gasperini and was once again decisive participating in the scoring of his team, which went to the top with a goal from Ilicic. Then, the Colombian assisted Gosens for the second and on minute 21 he made it 3-0 taking advantage of a Sirigu rebound to define with subtlety over the goalkeeper.
It seemed like a comfortable victory for Atalanta, but Atalanta discounted through Belotti, he got closer before the break with a goal from Bremer and near the end of the game, a Bonazzoli header sealed the final 3-3, that triggered criticism for the players from the Italian press and an affected Gasperini at the post-engagement press conference.
Muriel, among the saved of Atalanta
Still, the Colombian was among the high points and Atalanta’s saves despite Torino’s comeback. Calciomercato.com gave Muriel 7 rating points, being the second best of his team behind Gosens (7.5).
“After the goal of the Slovenian (Ilicic) is unlocked and finds first the assist for Gosens and then the goal in front of Sirigu.

Low qualification for Duván Zapata
Duván started from the substitute bench and entered the 58th minute instead of his compatriot. However, he had little participation and only just a shot from the right that went far above. Thus, Calciomercato.com gave it a 5.5 rating.
Zapata and Muriel now focus on the return of the Italian Cup semifinal against Napoli in Bergamo on Wednesday, February 10 from 2:45 pm (Colombian time), after the goalless draw in the first leg at Diego Armando Maradona.
