Sunday’s goal against Torino doubled La Dea’s lead on the Bull after Gianluca Scamacca’s goal just before the half-hour mark. 

Lookman’s goal was his 10th in Serie A and 16th in all competitions for La Dea this term, thus making him the fourth Atalanta player this season to hit double figures in the league.

Apart from Lookman (10), Scamacca (12), Teun Koopmeiners (12) and Charles De Ketelaere (10) have scored 10 league goals or more for Gian Piero Gasperini’s men in 2023/24. 

Lookman could have added to his Serie A tally but two second-half goals were disallowed for a Scamacca foul in the buildup to one and being flagged for offside moments later.

Sunday’s win over Torino means Atalanta will end fourth in Serie A, seeing Roma lose their Champions League berth. 

Six Italian sides could have played in Europe’s most prestigious club competition but that eventuality was contingent on La Dea ending no higher than fifth. 

Atalanta play Fiorentina on June 2 in a rescheduled gameweek 29 fixture, postponed after Joe Barone took ill before his ultimate passing.
