Ademola Lookman, a striker for Atalanta, scored a crucial goal in their 3-1 victory over Cremonese in the Serie A on Saturday. This was his first goal in eight games in all competitions, and it came when Atalanta needed it most. Marten de Roon gave Atalanta the lead just before halftime with a well-placed shot into the bottom left corner, and they held onto their 1-0 lead at halftime.

Cremonese fought back early in the second half when their captain, Daniel Ciofani, scored a penalty to equalize the game at 1-1. However, Atalanta quickly regained the lead in the 73rd minute when Danish striker Rasmus Hoiland scored after being set up by Jeremy Boga. Lookman, who had come on as a substitute at the start of the second half, sealed the win for Atalanta with a goal in the 93rd minute, taking his tally to 15 goals this season for the club.

While Lookman was the hero of the day, the win was a team effort, with de Roon and Hoiland also making important contributions. Cvriel Dessers came on as a substitute for Marco Benassi but was unable to influence the scoreline. The win takes Atalanta level on points with fourth-placed AC Milan, putting them in a good position for the rest of the season. Meanwhile, Cremonese remain bottom of the Serie A table, with a lot of work to do if they are to avoid relegation.
