Atalanta set scoring record

Atalanta have matched a Serie A record after almost 70 years, as they have three players who scored at least 15 Serie A goals each this season.

Duvan Zapata found the net in Turin against Juventus this evening, taking his tally for the campaign to 15.

Josip Ilicic has 15 as well, while Luis Muriel has already scored 17 goals this term.

The last team to have three different players on at least 15 Serie A goals in a single season was Juventus in 1951-52.

Back then, the hitmen were Ermes Muccinelli, Giampiero Boniperti and John Hansen.

Are Atalanta the best team in Europe?

There are many ways to define what makes the 'best' team, but Kaustubh Pandey argues Atalanta fit quite a few of them right now in both Italy and Europe.

The Atalanta juggernaut continues to plough on with some style. Last night’s 2-0 win over Sampdoria was hardly surprising, but it said a lot about La Dea’s ability to perform under pressure. As they plodded on towards the last 15 minutes against Claudio Ranieri’s men, the goal came from a source that might seem unlikely for others, but isn’t as unlikely for Atalanta – defender Rafael Toloi.

“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.

Atalanta 'offer Muriel for Florenzi'

Atalanta are reportedly prepared to offer Luis Muriel in order to land Roma wingback Alessandro Florenzi.

Florenzi is currently on loan at Valencia, but Gazzetta dello Sport writes they are only prepared to extend his arrangement as opposed to sign him outright.

Therefore, writes the newspaper, Atalanta are ready to compete by proposing an exchange with Muriel heading the other way.

The Colombian arrived from Sevilla last summer and has scored 14 goals in 28 games this season.
