A good night in Europe for Italy’s representatives in the Europa and Conference Leagues last night, both Atalanta and Roma coming out with decent wins.

Two goals from Luis Muriel helped Atalanta to a 3-2 win away at Germany’s Bayer Leverkusen. Leverkusen absorbed early pressure from La Dea to go a goal up after 11 minutes after hitting the woodwork a couple of minutes earlier.

Neat play in the box between Malinovskyi and Muriel found the former with some space, which he used to calmly put away the equaliser after 23 minutes and just a couple of minutes later, the turnaround was complete with a classic Atalanta goal.

Great work by Toloi to dispossess Leverkusen and then feed Malinovskyi in midfield saw the Ukranian unleash a perfect through ball for Muriel to run through and score.

Four minutes after half time, Muriel got his second and Atalanta’s third with a neat finish from the corner of the box.

Moussa Diaby made things closer with a goal half an hour from time but Atalanta held out for the win.

In the Conference League, Sergio Oliveira was both hero and villain as his first half injury time goal sealed the win for Roma away to Vitesse, but then game his teammates a nervy last 15 minutes when he was harshly red carded in the second half.

Back in Italy, the World Cup play off game against North Macedonia is only 2 weeks away and the Italian FA have requested an increase in stadium capacity for the game.

Currently, capacities are limited to 75% of maximum but for the game in Sicily, a special dispensation has been requested as the Azzurri hope to finally qualify for the World Cup in Qatar.
