Zapata double rallies Atalanta to draw with Ajax

Striker Duvan Zapata scored twice in six minutes to drag Atalanta back from a two-goal deficit and ensure a 2-2 draw with Ajax Amsterdam in their Champions League Group D clash on Tuesday. The Colombia international's double came after defensive lapses had allowed the Dutch to go 2-0 ahead at the interval with captain Dusan Tadic scoring a penalty and teenager Lassina Traore adding a second eight minutes later. Atalanta, who were quarterfinalists last season, moved second in the group after opening with a comfortable away win over Denmark's FC Midtjylland last week. It was Ajax's first point after losing at home to Liverpool last week.
