The Atalanta he took three gold points in his fight to consolidate himself in fourth position at the expense of a Rome very conservative that ended up paying very expensive conformism and stays 6 points from the positions of Champions.
The Bergamasco team survived their bad first half and put their rival against the ropes in a great second half in which, unlike what happened at the start, he did not seem to think about the knockout round against Valencia that has the around the corner.
Both teams began more to protect themselves in defense than to seek the opposite goal and the first half was a tactical battle in which there were hardly any scoring chances. Pau López broke a hand in hand with him Papu Gómez and in the middle of nowhere, about to get to rest, Edin Dzeko He punished a rude error by Palomino. The central one escaped a simple control being the last man and the Bosnian, more attentive, stole the leather to sharpen the goal of Gollini and beat him with a cross shot.
The Atalanta espabiló in the second half taking advantage of one of his great weapons: the stopped ball. In the 50th minute, Djimsiti extended a corner kick to the second post and Palomino, with the rod ready, scored 1-1 and amended his serious mistake in the visitors goal. The goal gave way to the most frantic minutes of the crash. Rome Y Atalanta the corset was removed and the crash entered a round-trip phase and much more entertaining friction.
Gian Piero Gasperini He noticed the weaknesses of his rival and decided to remove an insipid Hot shoe to enter a game specialist between the lines, Pasalic. The bet came to ask the Atalanta coach by mouth, because the Croatian player took a few seconds to score a goal for the entire squad and put the game downhill (59 ’).
