Udinese, despite an impressive performance, dropped points late against Atalanta and will look back on Isaac Success's penalty miss as one of the telling moments of the encounter.

A late Ederson striker rescued a point for Atalanta against a Udinese side that led for a huge chunk of the game and could have been up by more but for Isaac Success's misfortune from the penalty spot.

Gabrielle Coffi's side were looking to build on their remarkable win last week at the San Siro against Milan when they hosted Atalanta at the Dacia Arena. 

They started slowly but grew steadily into the game and were given a chance to take the lead at the half-hour mark from the penalty spot, but Nigerian forward Success spurned the chance as his attempt clattered the crossbar.

Brazillian international Wallace gave the hosts the lead just before half-time, and they held the advantage until the 92nd minute when his younger compatriot Ederson beat Marco Silvestri to steal a late point for the visitors.
