Player of the Match – Luis Muriel
The scoreline was comfortable in the end, but the Colombian was at his unstoppable best in the first half to quieten a lively Bologna early on.
Buonasera, @Atalanta_BC fans… How many of you feel like this right now?

First teeing up Ruslan Malinovskyi’s opener, Muriel then bagged himself from the penalty spot and came close to adding a few more as well, with one effort going off the post and another going just wide.
He made an impact on the scoresheet and the Rossoblu’s defenders will likely have a sleepless Sunday night haunted by what the Atalanta forward put them through.
