Hirving Lozano does not stop being the benchmark for Napoli this season. The ‘Chucky’ carried the team on his shoulder and his double opened the key to the win against Atalanta, one of Italy’s sensation teams.
With two goals in the first half, the Mexican scored his second double since joining the team led by Gennaro Gattuso today. In just four days of Serie A, Lozano has already shown his quality and equaled the goals he made last season, where he participated in 26 games.
This Saturday it was all for Napoli and the Mexican. Gattuso’s applause appeared once more in the band and despite the lack of fans at the San Paolo Stadium, the entire Campaña region sang their goals.
In the first instance, Lozano took advantage of the fact that his teammate Victor Osimhen went on a diagonal in the area and only put his foot so that the ball dramatically entered in slow motion. In this way, Napoli took the lead.
The double came minutes later with a shot outside the area. The national faced the half moon and shot with his right leg to beat Marco Sportiello, who saw how the ball embedded itself in the area.
The “well, Chucky” arrived, for the third consecutive game from the bench. ‘Rino’ did not stop encouraging the Mexican who took the palms and hugs of his teammates in the goal celebrations.
As if the surprise was not enough, Matteo Politano made it 3-0 and then Osimhen put his finger on the wound and sentenced the score with 4-0, all in the first 45 minutes. Just as a reminder that Atalanta also played, Sam Lammers put in the discount for the visit.
With the game in the twilight, the ‘Chucky’ looked for the triplet, but the glory was denied him; However, the Mexican showed why he is today one of the pillars of Napoli’s good pace.
