Rome: Atalanta revived their chances of earning another Champions League campaign with a 7-0 rout at Torino in Serie A on Saturday.
Josip Ilicic scored a hat trick, including one goal from near the halfway line, and Luis Muriel added a brace as the Bergamo squad moved level on points with fourth-place Roma ahead of Sunday's Rome derby between Roma and third-place Lazio.
The top four finishers qualify for the Champions League - a feat that Atalanta accomplished with a record third-place finish last season.
Robin Gosens and DuvÃ¡n Zapata also scored for Atalanta, which drew with Inter Milan and lost at home to relegation-threatened Spal in its previous two matches.
Torino ended with nine men.
Earlier, midtable Bologna came from a goal down to win 3-1 at Spal in an Emilia-Romagna derby. Bologna got an own-goal from Francesco Vicari and goals from Musa Barrow and Andrea Poli.
Fiorentina and struggling Genoa drew 0-0 as Fiorentina goalkeeper BartÅomiej DrÄ gowski saved a penalty from Domenico Criscito.
