Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano He scored his second double in three games played with Napoli and reached four in the 2020-21 season of Serie A. The Mexican opened the key to the 4-1 win over Atalanta this Saturday.
With two goals in the first half, ‘Chucky’ Lozano scored his second double with Napoli Gennaro Gattuso. In just four days of Serie A, Hirving equaled all four of his goals last season, in which he played in 26 games.
The 4-1 win over Atalanta was completed by the goals of Matteo Politano and Nigerian Victor Osimhen, on the fourth day of the Italian Serie A.
The ‘Chucky’ Lozano, who started for the third consecutive game this year, took 27 minutes to sign his personal double. He scored the first in the 23rd on a cross by Giovanni Di Lorenzo and completed it four minutes later with a perfect curved right hand from the edge of the area that entered the corner.
Napoli offered a recital against Atalanta who had won all three of their games this year, with up to thirteen goals scored, but this Saturday seemed to lack lucidity and energy. Their three offensive leaders, the Argentine Alejandro Gómez and the Colombians Duván Zapata and Luis Muriel, were not at their maximum, after transoceanic trips to concentrate with their teams.
Matteo Politano, with a left foot from outside the area, and Victor Osimhen, signed for 70 million from Lille in the last market session, determined the resounding 4-0 with which Napoli went to rest.
The Atalanta coach changed a lot at the resumption and gave way to Dutchman Sam Lammers, who partially qualified the setback with the final goal 4-1.
Napoli, punished with an administrative 3-0 and a penalty point for the uncontested duel against Juventus, to which they did not go after receiving an order from the Neapolitan Local Sanitary Finance (ASL) for health security issues, forgot that displeasure with an authoritarian triumph.
Thanks to the second double by ‘Chucky’ Lozano, Gennaro Gattuso’s men are now momentarily second, just one point behind Atalanta, still the leader, who had won their previous three games.
