The streak continues: Luis Muriel scored in Atalanta’s 3-1 win over Spezia in Serie A

The Colombian louis muriel marked this Sunday the path to victory and to Europe for the Atalanta scoring the first of his team’s goals against a Spezia (1-3) that continues without certifying the permanence after this thirty-sixth day of Series A.

Finishing in European competitions is Atalanta’s objective for this season, and adding three points this day was presented as essential to achieve the objective. Muriel led ‘La Dea’ in attack and opened the scoring to pave the way.

Although there is a possibility that eight teams will participate in European competition next season if Roma win the Conference League, Atalanta are on the limit. And those of Gasperini do not want to depend on external factors.

Despite continuing to be mired in a bad run of play, the ‘neroazzurri’ got through a difficult game against Thiago Motta’s Spezia, who are at stake for permanence, thanks, in part, to another great performance by Muriel, who signed his 14th goal of the season

Spezia equalized 15 minutes later, half an hour into the match, through their best player, the Italian Daniele Verdi, but could not resist the onslaught of an Atalanta who knew it was a fundamental game. The Albanian Berat Djimitsi put the 1-2 on the scoreboard in the 73rd minute and the Croatian Mario Pasalic, who has accumulated four goals in the last four games, put the final touch in the closing stages.

With this victory, those from Bergamo (Italy, north), are placed seventh in the Conference League position with 59 points -tied with Roma-, waiting for what happens in Fiorentina-Rome on Monday, a direct duel for Europe that can leave Atalanta in European positions if the ‘Fiore’ tied or lost to the team led by José Mourinho.

For its part, Spezia remains 16th, five points behind Genoa, the first team in relegation, so it is not saved mathematically with two games to go.
