Colombia's Atalanta close to goal record in Italy

With the six he converted on Tuesday to Brescia, the blue-and-blue team could beat the mark of 105 goals that Torino achieved more than 70 years ago.

This Tuesday’s victory of Atalanta on Brescia 6-2 not only allowed the black and blue team to get back into the fight for the Scudetto, but also brought it closer to breaking one of the oldest records that the A series.

It is that the whole of the city of Bergamo reached 93 goals in the domestic tournament and was only twelve of the mark of most goals in a season that Torino established in the 1947/48 campaign.

This milestone would be a wonder on its own, considering that the Italian league is known in recent years as the most defensively oriented competition on the old continent. And a fact from Opta proves it: Atalanta is one of only two teams in the last 60 years to score at least 93 goals (Napoli scored 94 in 2016/17).

If Atalanta finally breaks the barrier of a hundred goals and then manages to break Torino’s mark in the five dates that remain in the tournament, much is due to the contribution of their Colombians: Luis Muriel and Duván Zapata are the team’s top two scorers. , with 17 and 16, respectively.
