Roma snatches a point in Six-Goal thriller

Javier Pastore scored his first AS Roma goal after two minutes but an Emiliano Rigoni brace helped Atalanta leave the capital with a share of the spoils in a 3-3 draw in Serie A on Monday.

Roma got off to a blistering start with Pastore scoring minutes into his first match at the Stadio Olimpico with a spectacular back-heel after a pinpoint Cengiz Under cross.

Atalanta proved dangerous, taking advantage of sloppy Roman defending to pull ahead 3-1 at halftime. Belgian defender Timothy Castagne tapped in the equalizer after 19 minutes and within three minutes Argentine Rigoni got his first goal with the second on 38 minutes.

Alessandro Florenzi pulled a goal back on the hour mark before limping off injured with Patrik Schick thrown into the attack in his place.

But it was Greek defender Kostas Manolas who pulled the hosts level seven minutes from time, tapping in a Pastore free kick.
Roma have four points from two games.

Roma 3
(Pastore 2, Florenzi 60, Manolas 82)
Atalanta 3
(Castagne 19, Rigoni 22, 38)
