Serie A Recap: Cagliari beat Sampdoria, Atalanta’s Zapata scored 100th Serie A goal

In the 8th round of the Italian championship on Sunday, Cagliari beat Sampdoria 3-1 at home, recording their first victory of the season. As Joao Pedro scored 1-0 in the fourth minute the home team quickly took the lead. After the first goal of the game, there were no goals for a long time, but in the 74th minute, Caceres raised it to 2-0. 

With a Thorsby goal in the 82nd minute, Sampdoria was reduced to 2-1, but Pedro scored his second goal of the game in the referee’s compensation for a 3-1 football result. After this victory, Cagliari is 17th in the standings with six points, the same as Sampdoria, which is in 16th place. The first is Milan with 22 points.

In Atalanta’s 4-1 (2-1) away victory against Empoli in the match of the 8th round of the Italian football championship, Croatian national team midfielder Mario Pašalić recorded two assists. Pašalić, who played the entire match for Atalanta, first took advantage of a mistake by a rival stopper who missed the ball in the 12th minute, threw himself behind him and then ideally hired Iličić, who had no trouble shaking the net from 10 meters. 

He followed Zapata’s long run at the very end of the game, in the 89th minute, which started from his own half and then played an ideal double pass with the Colombian, who easily scored from five meters for his 100th Serie A goal in his career.

With a beautiful shot from the edge of the penalty area, Iličić scored 2-0 in the 26th minute, very soon after, in the 30th minute Di Francesco reduced the lead to 2-1, but at the beginning of the second half Viti scored an own goal in the 49th minute, this took Atalanta to a two-goal advantage. Then Iličić “managed” to shoot a penalty kick. Sixth Atalanta now has 14 points, as does fifth Lazio, while Empoli is 11th with nine points.
