Muriel: 'We can catch Lazio'

Luis Muriel was bullish about Atalanta’s chances to climb the table after another win against Cagliari on Sunday.

Atalanta beat the Rossoblu 1-0 in Sardinia to make it eight on the bounce and the Colombian forward, who scored the only goal in the match from the penalty spot, has claimed La Dea can start thinking about surpassing their rivals in the top four.

“We aim high, to what we can achieve,” Muriel told Sky Sport Italia. “We have Lazio five points ahead and one point to Inter. That’s targets we can achieve.

“It’s difficult to keep up with Juventus but finishing one or two places higher than we are right now would be wonderful.”

Muriel has taken his tally to 16 in Serie A this term, appearing 27 times for the Orobici, who sit fourth after 30 games.
