It’s not easy to maintain continuity-Gasperini

Fri 08 January 2021 | 14:15

Before the match with Benevento, Gasperini talks about the situation of Atalanta and the good condition of the Serie A teams

Atalanta

have become a strong team after the Champions League's group stage and have lost only once in the last 12 games. Gasperini's men are currently seventh in the table with 28 points after 15 matches.

Atalanta will face Benevento tomorrow, but it looks like Gasperini is expecting more surprises.

"

It will be a complicated match

," Gasperini said at a press conference.

"Benevento have won six games and that's many for a newly promoted side

.

"They are having a good championship and on Sunday there were many surprising results at the top, there's a battle and balance in all areas of the table

.

"

I don't think the home factor counts anymore, in the current state of affairs.

"

Atalanta coach is satisfied with Luis Palomino's performance and believes that 5 changes will help the team's condition.

"

I look at the moment and the situation, Palomino is much better,

" he said. "

The tight games are a factor to consider, as well as the characteristics of the opponent

.

"

We often use five changes, even during the game in progress. You can even consider that a turnover

.

"

I needed to see [Mattia] Caldara in the match, even from a segment of the match you can understand the insertion of a player

.

"

We have something missing on the outside, but in the end we will be right. There's no need to have 28 players in the squad. What matters is to get the results."

Atalanta are fighting in three different competitions, including the Coppa Italia and the Champions League; Gasperini has one eye on the tough schedule ahead.

"We will play often in this period, we prefer to have more days off work and train on the pitch.

"Next week, we will play Genoa, Udinese and Milan. It was OK not to play in Udine at that moment, then there's the backside of the medal.

"It's the fruit of this season, we must adapt."

Gasperini also spoke about the quality of the teams in Serie A.

"

At the moment there are many good matches

," he said.

"Milan-Juventus was a high-quality match

.

"

Roma and Naples also express excellent football, as well as Verona and Benevento.

"In this historical moment, it's not easy to maintain continuity."
