Nigerian winger, Ademola Lookman came off the bench on his home debut as Atalanta held Serie A champions AC Milan to a one-all draw at the Gewiss Stadium on Sunday, August, 21.

The 24-year-old had an impressive start to life in Italy when he scored on his Serie A debut against Sampdoria on Matchday one.

Gian Piero Gasperini introduced the ex-Leicester City man into the game in the 73rd minute and once again Lookman put up a better showing for his side helping them to share the spoils with the reigning champions.

Lookman recorded a hundred percent pass accuracy, which means he didn't misplace a single pass during his time on the pitch. He also attempted two shoots.

The Super Eagles winger joined Atalanta from Leipzig earlier this month for a fee believed to be around the region of €15m.

Lookman will look forward to his first Atalanta start when Gasperini's side travel away to Chievo Verona on Saturday, August 27.
