Atalanta Match The Old Lady 87-Year Record

Atalanta became the first Serie A team to score four times in the opening 15 minutes of a match since 1932 in a thrashing of Bologna.img 20190405 1125304537692821482704711

Gian Piero Gasperini’s side moved to within a point of AC Milan in the final Champions League qualification place after demolishing Bologna at Atleti Azzurri d’Italia on Thursday.

They struck twice in the first five minutes of the game, Josip Ilicic beating goalkeeper Lukasz Skorupski from outside the penalty area and scoring again just 122 seconds later.img 20190405 1125278949846805944519176

Ilicic then turned provider as the hosts made it 3-0 in the ninth minute, setting up Hans Hateboer for a right-footed finish that continued Atalanta’s dominance.

Incredibly they were still not finished as Bologna continued to slump, with Remo Freuler teeing up Duvan Zapata for his 20th Serie A goal of the season.

No Serie A team had scored four goals so early in a match since Juventus made a similarly rapid start in a game against Roma all the way back in March 1932.
