A late goal by defender Nehuen Perez helped Udinese to come back from two goals down to earn a 2-2 home draw against Atalanta on Sunday as the hosts continued their best start to a top-flight campaign in their history.
Striker Ademola Lookman put the visitors ahead in the 36th minute after he was brilliantly set up by forward Luis Muriel who sent a precise low pass into the six-yard box which the 24-year-old smashed into the roof of the net.
Atalanta doubled their advantage 11 minutes into the second half when they were awarded a penalty for Destiny Udogie's risky tackle on Muriel. The fouled forward then calmly pushed the ball past goalkeeper Marco Silvestri with the tip of his boot.
Gerard Deulofeu made it 2-1 with a superb free kick into the left of the goal in the 67th minute and Udinese levelled 11 minutes later through a brilliant header by Perez.
Udinese moved up one place to third, on 20 points.
