Lookman scores, assists as Atalanta beat Fiorentina to reach Coppa Final

Atalanta scored twice in injury time – with ex-Everton forward Ademola Lookman on target – as they beat Fiorentina to reach the Coppa Italia final.

Lookman scored in the 94th minute and Mario Pasalic in the 98th to seal a 4-2 aggregate victory in their semi-final.

Atalanta, 1-0 down from the first leg, scored early through Teun Koopmeiners but Lucas Martinez Quarta struck for Fiorentina after half-time.

Gianluca Scamacca scored a scissor kick to level the tie before two late goals.

Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic was shown a straight red card in the 53rd minute after former West Ham striker Scamacca was brought down when racing through on goal.

With the aggregate score level at 2-2 and extra time looming in Bergamo, substitute Lookman – a product of Charlton Athletic’s academy – finished superbly with his left foot to put Atalanta within reach of the final, after a lengthy video assistant referee check for offside.

As the 10 men of Fiorentina pushed forward, they left gaps, and Pasalic found himself racing through on goal, calmly dinked the ball over the oncoming Pietro Terracciano to complete a 4-1 win on the night.

Atalanta will take on Juventus in the final after they overcame Lazio 3-2 on aggregate.
