Highlights: Benevento 1-4 Atalanta

Josip Ilicic put in one of the best performances of his career, lighting up Atalanta against Benevento, although Luis Muriel also scored a magnificent goal.

Ilicic was in the mood to entertain at the Stadio Vigorito and dribbled through the entire Benevento defence to net the opener, while nutmegging Kamil Glik.

The Slovenian also rattled the woodwork with his left-foot curler, but Benevento got one back with Marco Sau sliding onto debutant Christian Pastina’s ball to the back post.

Ilicic helped create the goals for Rafael Toloi and Duvan Zapata, then sparked the counter that saw Muriel place a stunner into the far top corner.
