Everton humiliated by Atalanta 1-5 in front of second lowest ever Goodison attendance

Everton were humiliated by Atalanta on Thursday night losing 1-5 in their Europa League clash.

The match was played in front of their second lowest attendance ever in European competition.

The Toffees had already been eliminated before the game but caretaker manager David Unsworth selected a strong side.

The Italian visitors went ahead after 12 minutes, midfielder Bryan Cristante converting from close range after Ashley Williams' weak clearance.

Everton keeper Joel Robles saved Alejandro Gomez's penalty and follow-up early in the second half but Atalanta doubled their lead through Cristante's second.

Sandro Ramirez scored his first goal for the club to cut the deficit but substitute Robin Gosens' well-struck dipping volley beat Robles before Danish striker Andreas Cornelius' brace made it worse.
