Zapata scores on Atalanta debut

Atalanta fought back to win their friendly 6-1 against Chiasso with Papu Gomez and new signing Duvan Zapata on the scoresheet.

The pre-season test started on the wrong foot when Chiasso scored within 20 seconds.

It was a brief slip-up, as Papu Gomez promptly scored a brace to turn it around, then his corner found Alessandro Mancini.

Hans Hateboer got the fourth after the restart on a Timothy Castagne pull-back, but ex-Sampdoria striker Duvan Zapata made an impressive bow with his goal from close range.

Marten De Roon completed the rout by nodding in a Josip Ilicic free kick.

Atalanta: Berisha (Gollini 46); Toloi, Mancini (Djimsiti 77), Masiello; Castagne (Reca 77), de Roon, Valzania (Pessina 77), Gosens (Hateboer 46); Ilicic, Barrow (Zapata 65), Gomez
