Hamed Traoré (4): A disappointing performance from the young Ivorian winger. He made several poor passes and failed to complete his dribbles. He was replaced by Piotr Zieliński in the early stages of the second half.

Matteo Politano (3.5): A lackluster performance from the Napoli attacker. He was ineffective and failed to create any danger for Atalanta. He was replaced by Jesper Lindstrøm.

Marco Carnesecchi (6.5): A solid performance from the goalkeeper. He made several crucial saves, particularly against Osimhen in the 30th and 80th minutes.
