The Nigerian forward found the back of the net as Atalanta cruised to a 2-0 win against Cagliari during their Serie A clash.
A first-half goal from the Nigerian international and another from Croatian attacking midfielder Mario Pašalić were all Atalanta needed to secure a well-deserved win in the Italian League.
Here’s how the action unfolded for Ademola Lookman and his teammates:
The intense battle had both sides go tooth and nail in search of the opener until 33 minutes, when the 25-year-old Super Eagles star broke the deadlock to hand his side the lead.
The first half ended with a narrow margin as both sides kicked off the second half with the same energy and momentum.
76 minutes on the clock, the visiting Cagliari succumbed to yet another goal, and this time around, it was Pašalić who doubled the lead for the home team.
His goal proved to be the winner as Atalanta held on to run away winners at the Gewiss Stadium.
What does the goal mean for the Nigerian ?
It was back-to-back goals for Ademola Lookman, who now has two goals in five league appearances this season.
The victory also propels Atalanta to the 6th spot on the Serie A table with just nine points from five games, while their visitors remain in second place with just two points.
The Nigerian forward Ademola Lookman will be hoping to build on his scoring prowess when Atalanta visits Verona in midweek.
