Tammy Abraham brace fires Roma past Atalanta



Tammy Abraham (second left) has scored 12 goals for Roma this season

Tammy Abraham netted twice and fellow Englishman Chris Smalling was also on the scoresheet to give Roma an impressive 4-1 Serie A win at Atalanta.

Abraham bundled home after just 57 seconds and smashed in Roma’s fourth to take his tally to 12 for the season.

Smalling converted a smart finish at the back post, while midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo had put Roma 2-0 in front.

Bryan Cristante’s own goal before half-time pulled one back for Atalanta, who also had a goal disallowed for offside.


Centre-back Jose Luis Palomino thought he had equalised for the home side for 2-2 but his goal was ruled out.

Smalling scored just four minutes later and Abraham thumped in a first-time finish to move Roma up to fifth in the table.

Jose Mourinho’s side sit level on points with Juventus, who won 2-0 at Bologna thanks to goals from Alvaro Morata and Juan Cuadrado.

Morata slid in the opener at a foggy Stadio Dall’Ara after six minutes before Cuadrado doubled the visitors’ lead after the break to put Juventus sixth in Serie A.
