Lookman was coming off a hat trick in Atalanta’s 3-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League final on Wednesday, and the Europa League trophy was on the sideline before kickoff.

Sixth-place Roma, which was playing at Empoli later, needed Atalanta to finish fifth to qualify for the Champions League.

It’s the final round of the Italian league but Atalanta still has a game to make up against Fiorentina next Sunday.

Scamacca scored first after being set up by Charles De Ketelaere then Lookman tapped in a rebound of a shot from Pasalic following another set-up from De Ketelaere. Midway through the second half, Lookman was fouled to provide the penalty for Pasalic.
