Barrow ends goal drought

Gambia striker Musa Barrow brought an end to his eight months goalless drought at the weekend after he found the back of the net for the first time this season in Atalanta’s 2-1 home win over Genoa.

The 20-year-old, who had gone 21 league matches without finding his scoring boots, guided Atalanta to take another big step towards their first UEFA Champions League participation with their win lifting them to third in Serie A and extended their unbeaten run to eleven league matches.
