The defeat with Real Madrid does not turn off Atalanta

Those from Bergamo beat Sampdoria 2-0 away from home, which started better. Malinovskyi and Gosens scored the goals that put Dea in third place with Juve.


Atalanta quickly forgot the controversial Champions League defeat with Madrid, defeating Claudio Ranieri's Sampdoria at home. Gasperini's men, today in the stands due to suspension, with this result further reinforce their position in the Champions zone, reaching Juventus in third place.

The accumulated fatigue from playing almost the entire match with 10 against the meringues was noticeable especially at the beginning of the clash, when the Dea suffered a lot and the Doriani touched 1-0 several times. Sportiello neutralized a shot from Jankto and a free-kick from Damsgaard, and Palomino took a shot from the same Czech off the goal.

Those from Bergamo endured the great start of their rivals and grew as the minutes passed. In the last quarter of an hour, in fact, they seized the game and opened the can with a beautiful combination between Muriel and Malinovskyi, which was pulled from the hat with an unstoppable left-foot for Audero.

In the resumption, Atalanta showed twice one of the specialties of their house, the pass from side to side. The first, in the 50 ', was worth a goal from Maehle, annulled by a Gosens offside only with the help of the VAR. The German, however, in 71 'received a cross from the other side and pushed it between sticks, anticipating Candreva. It was his eighth goal this year and made him the top scorer in the top European leagues.

With 0-2 on the scoreboard, the Nerazzurri managed the advantage well and, in the last half hour, Ilicic was seen again, who replaced Muriel and gave much better signals regarding his performance against Madrid. Without more scares came, then, the fourth victory in the last five games of Atalanta. The defeat with the whites did not extinguish him.
