Last-gasp Zapata winner rescues Atalanta


Milan (AFP) – Duvan Zapata struck deep into injury time to rescue a 2-1 win for Atalanta over Genoa on Sunday ahead of his side’s Champions League debut.

Colombian international Zapata rifled in on 95 minutes after Genoa captain Domenico Criscito had pulled the hosts level from the spot four minutes earlier.

The side from Bergamo had been ahead after Colombian substitute Muriel’s 64th-minute penalty awarded when Genoa’s new defender Cristian Zapata fouled his cousin Duvan Zapata. 

But amid the late drama Genoa were awarded a controversial penalty after Christian Kouame went down easily following a Berat Djimsiti challenge.

“It seemed to be over with the penalty, but we wanted that win,” Zapata told DAZN.

“The ball came to me and I put everything into it.”

Gian Piero Gasperini’s side had lost last week to Torino and are now fifth, three points behind leaders Inter Milan, before they travel to Dinamo Zagreb for their first ever Champions League game next week.

“Today was a hard-fought match against a good Genoa, but I think Atalanta deserved the victory,” said Gasperini. 

“The late penalty left us perplexed, but we showed personality. Finding victory after they equalised at the end of the match is a good sign.”

For Genoa it was first defeat this season after holding Roma 3-3 and beating Fiorentina 2-1.

Inter Milan took top spot in Serie A on Saturday after a 1-0 win over 10-man Udinese, as Juventus lost three players to injury in a goalless draw at Fiorentina.

Stefano Sensi’s diving header was enough to seal a maximum nine points for Antonio Conte’s Inter ahead of their European opener against Slavia Prague in the San Siro next Tuesday.

But as Maurizio Sarri made his debut on the Juventus bench after recovering from pneumonia, the Italian champions showed signs of weakness four days before their trip to Atletico Madrid.

Juventus are trailing two points behind Inter Milan after three games and could be overtaken by city rivals Torino who host promoted Lecce on Monday.

Napoli meanwhile warmed up for European holders Liverpool on Tuesday with a Dries Mertens double sealing a 2-0 win over crisis club Sampdoria, to move up to fourth in the table.

Teenager Fati lights up Barca, Benzema brilliance inspires Real


Madrid (AFP) – Ansu Fati, the 16-year-old starlet from Guinea Bissau, scored his second goal of the season as Barcelona breezed to a 5-2 win against Valencia on Saturday. 

Karim Benzema netted twice for Real Madrid as they fought off a late comeback to beat Levante 3-2 as Eden Hazard made his La Liga debut.

Atletico Madrid retained their place at the top of the table, but only by one point from Real Madrid after their first defeat of the season when they lost 2-0 at Real Sociedad at the Basque club’s newly refurbished stadium.

With Lionel Messi still out and watching from the stands at the Camp Nou it was left to Fati take the plaudits.

Fati, who became the third youngest scorer in La Liga history when he came off the bench to net in a 2-2 draw at Osasuna this month, scored in the second minute, before providing the assist for Frenkie de Jong’s seventh minute goal.

The teenager got a standing ovation when he came off after an hour.

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde marvelled at Fati’s composure.

“It’s not usual that on his first touch he scores, and on his second he sets up a goal,” he said. 

“To get used to being a Barca player is work for anyone, even more so for a boy so young, but he’s a balanced kid, he strikes me as being at ease.”

Kevin Gameiro got Valencia off the mark but a brace from the fit-again Luis Suarez meant Max Gomez’s injury time second for the visitors was purely academic.

The defeat left Valencia with just four points from four matches, leaving new coach Albert Celades — a former Real Madrid assistant coach — with a huge amount of work to do before the club play their first Champions League group game against Chelsea on Tuesday.

– Real show frailties –

At a rain-drenched Santiago Bernabeu, Benzema’s goals came just six minutes apart in the first half before Casemiro put Real 3-0 up.

However Levante, who had won their previous two outings, made a fight of it in the second half as they pulled goals back through Borja Mayoral and Gonzalo Melero.

“The second half was more difficult for us, but the overall feeling was positive,” said coach Zinedine Zidane, whose team had drawn their previous two games.

“We have got the three points and we were incredible in the first half, the way we played, the goals, the commitment. We just need to stay focused for the full 90 minutes.”
