Atalanta make early statement with win at Lazio

Atalanta captain Alejandro Gomez scored twice in an impressive 4-1 win for the Bergamo side away to top-four rivals Lazio in Serie A on Wednesday. Robin Gosens put the visitors in front after 10 minutes before his fellow wing-back Hans Hateboer blasted home a second. Gomez then drilled home a finish to give Atalanta a commanding halftime lead, but Felipe Caicedo pulled one back in the second half. However, Atalanta's Argentinian captain scored a spectacular fourth to put the result beyond doubt, as he drilled an unstoppable shot into the top corner from a tight angle. The result leaves Atalanta in second place with six points from their opening two games, while Lazio are 10th with three points.
