Atalanta captain Papu Gomez continued his stunning form from last season to be named during the second week of fixtures in A, as returned to action with a 4-1 win over Torino at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday afternoon.

The Bergamo-based side had missed Round 1 due to their run to the 2019/20 quarter-finals, but the 32-year-old showed few signs of fatigue, firing the visitors into the lead and assisting twice.

Celebrating his 200th Serie A appearance in Turin, the Argentina international drifted into space just outside the box on 13 minutes and curled a wonderful effort into the bottom corner past Salvatore Sirigu.

Gomez’ 100th career strike, was then followed by a perfectly weighted pass over the Granata for to finish with similar style, before sending over a cross to the back post just before half time, that Hans Hateboer stabbed home.
