The Atalanta is still a steamroller

Gasperini's men began the course with the same rhythm as in recent months and another win. Torino fell 4-2 in their stadium to Bergamo.


The Atalanta started the new season being the steamroller of always. In their first league match (its premiere was postponed due to the European commitments in August), Gasperini's men showed the aggressive and offensive football that has made them great and defeated Giampaolo's Torino 4-2 at home. The former Milan manager, on the other hand, has started his new adventure very badly: it is his second defeat in two games.

The victory has even more merit because the Bergamo team had the strength to totally change the course of the confrontation. In the beginning, the locals hit the crossbar with a left foot from Zaza and opened the can with Belotti, who received a vertical pass from Rincón and beat Sportiello with his left foot. It was the 11th ', and from there the' Dea 'show returned in a big way.

Two minutes later, Gómez combined with Duván Zapata and tied with a right hand from outside the area. The 'Papu', in the 21 ', put Muriel alone in front of Sirigu with a long pass, and the Colombian did not miss. In the last five minutes before the break came two more goals: the unstoppable Gómez signed another assist for Hateboer in 42 ', and in 43' Belotti closed the gap with a header.

The goal of 'Gallo' did not wake up the locals, who conceded 2-4 in the 54th minute, when De Roon took advantage of a cross from Muriel and pushed the ball between sticks. Atalanta managed their advantage smoothly and, when accelerating, it seemed they could continue scoring goals: no Serie A team creates the same number of chances. If Gasperini's men, this time, maintain the same rhythm throughout the course, it will be impossible not to see them fighting with Juventus and Inter to win the Scudetto.
