First half highlights of Roma’s fine away win at Atalanta in the Serie A.
8′ [1 – 0] M. Livaja
12′ [1 – 1] Marquinho
34′ [1 – 2] M. Pjanic
44′ [2 – 2] M. Livaja
Roma defied both the weather and a spirited Atalanta resistance to claim back-to-back Serie A victories for the first time in 2013 with a 2-3 victory.
In an amazing first half Roma and Atalanta went in at half time 2-2. The game at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia was hours away from being called off as a heavy band of snow refused to leave Bergamo, but on-loan Inter Milan striker Marko Livaja ensured there would be a contest with his rapid opening goal.
Marquinho pegged Atalanta back before Miralem Pjanic turned the game on its head with an exquisite free-kick, only for Livaja to complete his brace heading into half-time.

71′ [2 – 3] V. Torosidis
Vassilas Torosidis was not as well placed as his team-mate had been when the ball sailed across the Atalanta box but the Greek rose well to nod it beyond a flailing Consigli to put Roma back into the lead.
There was plenty of time and desire left for Atalanta to force a draw and Stekelenburg was the hero when he pulled off a fine save from substitute Stefano Lucchini’s header.
