Serie A and Champions League are very different, claims Gasperini

Gasperini, Atalanta coach talks about potential injured players who will miss the next match.

Gasperini

confirms that he has concerns about injuries ahead of the

Champions League

clash with Liverpool. They're not getting the result everyone expected from them since they've been one of the best of Europe last season.

Injuries surely play their part for the poor current form of

Atalanta

. However they have beaten

Crotone

with a 2-1 result. Luis Muriel bagged a brace and went off at half-time as part of the squad rotation, though Nwankwo Simy left Crotone in the running to the end.

“It’s not just about the result, as we were consistently attacking, didn’t allow much in defence other than the goal incident, which made it seem more in the balance than it really was,” the coach told Sky Sport Italia.

Hans Hateboer and

Cristian Romero

went off with muscular injuries today, while Robin Gosens and Marten de Roon are also expected to miss the Champions League showdown with

Liverpool

.

“We’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see, Toloi also had a heavy knock to his knee, so we’ll see who we can recover and who we can’t. We played the game we needed to and there are some regrets we didn’t finish it off earlier, as we wasted several chances, but we were always in control.

“I really liked Muriel’s first half, he scored two good goals, had chances for a hat-trick.

Josip Ilicic

struggled today, he was not the player I had hoped to see even for just 45 minutes. He was off the pace today, more than in other games.”
