Marek Hamsik says Napoli “deserved” to beat Atalanta, but regrets missing a late penalty.
The Partenopei closed the gap at the top of the table to a point with a win in Bergamo, coupled with Inter’s defeat at home to Lazio.
“I think our victory was deserved,” Hamsik wrote on his official website.
“It’s a very important win. In the second half we created a lot and scored three goals, and at the end we were playing with a man down.
“I’m happy for the goal from the penalty spot which unlocked the game, but I’m sorry I missed the second penalty.”
