Atalanta’s good start to the season continued with a 2-0 win at Monza to move back to the top of Serie A.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s side have dropped just two points so far and their win was value for money as an Atalanta first goal for Rasmus Hojlund got them on the way in the 12th minute of the second half.
Ademola Lookman set up the first and played a role in the second as Marlon’s own goal secured victory, leaving newly promoted Monza bottom with five losses from five.
Sam Lammers scored a late equalizer as Empoli drew 2-2 at Salernitana in an entertaining clash.
A Martin Satriano header put the visitors ahead just after the half-hour, but Salernitana turned things around with a fine strike from Pasquale Mazzocchi and Boulaye Dia’s third goal in as many games.
Empoli would equalize with nine minutes to go, Lammers earning some of the spoils with a good finish.
Nikola Vlasic continued his good start in life at Torino. Five minutes before half-time, the West Ham loanee scored his third goal of the season to give Ivan Juric’s side a 1-0 home win over Lecce.
Meanwhile, Shon Weissman grabbed a last-minute win as Real Valladolid won the battle between the two promoted LaLiga teams, beating Almeria 1-0 to earn their first win of the season.
