The Atalanta coach towards the match against Milan: “Last year he put us in trouble with the speed of Leao and Theo, we have to find the countermeasures”
February 25 – Zingonia (Bg)
After a sprint start to 2023 in which he went and scored brilliantly, Atalanta slowed down their race for Europe in February with defeats against Sassuolo and Lecce. True, in the middle there was the excellent success at Lazio’s home, but now to think big it is urgent to get off the swing and find that continuity that is actually lacking even in the other big names (excluding the Martian Naples). Also for this reason tomorrow’s match at Milan’s home becomes a very important watershed.
Gasp and the swing
“Goals conceded in the first minutes, like against Lecce? Let’s hope we don’t get any at all. Defeat that bothers us, now there are strong reasons to face a Milan that has been recovering in recent weeks. Playing at the home of the Italian champions gives additional stimuli. Hoping to repeat the performance at Lazio’s home. Even if you concede a goal, he has 85′ to overturn the result. It’s not easy to explain the fact that we go better away than at home. Apart from Napoli, all the teams are struggling to find continuity. We took a few holes, but as we didn’t exalt ourselves after Lazio we mustn’t exaggerate the knockout with Lecce. Then the doubt is always the usual. Should we consider ourselves big and therefore regret some lost points or be proud to still be up there? I lean towards the latter and I am satisfied with our performance. Last year Milan put us in trouble with the speed of Leao and Theo, so we have to find countermeasures. Without Zapata (which I hope to recover for the next match, at the latest for the one after) and Pasalic, we don’t have too many alternatives in attack. I can play with the trident, with the attacking midfielder or with the 4-2-3-1”.
