While Atalanta is on the rise after beating Napoli in the top game, AS Roma had to give up against Benevento.
February 21, 2021
The match at Bergamo was overshadowed by a nasty accident involving Victor Osimhen. The Napoli striker hit his head on the ground, remained unconscious and had to be taken to the hospital. Fortunately, Oshimen did not suffer any major injuries, as his club announced in the evening.
From a sporting point of view, it was an evening to forget for Napoli. Atalanta overtook the southern Italians with a 4-2 win. After a bumpy start to the season, the Bergamasken roll up the field from behind. But now the Champions League is waiting first, where Atalanta meets Real Madrid in the round of 16.
The capitals are one point ahead of Atalanta in third place. It was precisely this point that Roma secured on Sunday evening in a 0-0 win against newly promoted Benevento.
The Milan derby had already taken place in the afternoon. Inter dealt with city rivals Milan 3-0.
