Atalanta arrives launched in Madrid

Gasperini's men beat Spezia 3-1 with a double from Pasalic and a goal from the unstoppable Muriel. Zapata played the last half hour and signed an assist.


The setback with Inter is already forgotten for Atalanta, who arrive at the appointment with Madrid faithful to their customs: thrashing. La Dea knocked down Spezia 3-1 and, while waiting for the other matches of this day, it is placed in fourth place, very much alive in the fight for the Champions League positions, its main objective for this course. In the last six rounds, he has won five times.

Gasperini started without Romero and Pessina, likely starters on Tuesday, or Zapata, who entered the second half and showed he had overcome his thigh problem. After a fairly even first half thanks to the great tactical work of the Italians, the Bergamo team unleashed at the restart, sentencing the contest between minute 53 and 55.

The 1-0 went to Pasalic, who controlled the ball in the area only after a play from Ilicic and beat Zoet with a right hand. Muriel, shortly after, made it 2-0 with a wonderful thread from the edge of the area. The Colombian is intractable: in this Serie A he has 16 goals in 967 minutes played, one every 60.

In the last half hour Duván Zapata replaced his compatriot and gave him time to sign an assist to Pasalic, who completed his double with a left foot. The only moles of the Nerazzurri night were Piccoli's goal of honor and a blow to Djimsiti, who left the pitch on 51 '. His conditions do not worry: Gasperini, except for surprises, will arrive in Madrid with all his men at his disposal, except Hateboer, Sutalo and the sanctioned Freuler, and with a huge illusion. Dea believes in the comeback.
