Napoli blast four goals as they thumped Atlanta 4-1
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 17 - 10 - 2020

Napoli blasted four goals in a devastating 20-minute first half spell as they thumped Atlanta 4-1 in Serie A on Saturday, handing the visitors a taste of their own medicine, Reuters reported.
Free-scoring Atlanta, last season's top-scorers with 98 goals, had netted 13 goals in winning their first three games but had no answer to Napoli's attacks in an extraordinary first half.
Mexican forward Hirving Lozano, out of favor with coach Gennaro Gattuso last season, set Napoli on their way with two goals in four minutes.
The player known as "Chucky" tapped in from Giovanni Di Lorenzo's cross in the 23rd minute and curled in the second after Dries Mertens pounced on a mix-up in the Atlanta midfield.
Matteo Politano fired the third on the half hour and Nigeria forward Victor Osimhen took advantage of more poor defending to score the fourth before the interval.
Napoli goalkeeper David Ospina's kick up field was misjudged by Cristian Romero and Osimhen, signed from Lille in the summer, chested the ball down and scored with a shot on the turn to net his first goal for his new club.
Romero partially made amends by setting up Atlanta's consolation for substitute Sam Lammers in the 69th minute. The Argentine won possession, charged up field and released Lammers who clipped his shot past Ospina.
