Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini confesses Milan ‘really impressed’ him in their 3-2 win in Bergamo.
Undoubtedly, conceding within 30 seconds and another just before half-time was a blow, as between those two incidents we did have the opportunities to equalise,
” Gasperini told DAZN.
“Our confidence was shaken, but also it has to be noted that Milan are in excellent form and they did everything right this evening.
“We were also unlucky in some situations, for example losing Matteo Pessina to injury. We still created the chances, we just didn’t finish them and the goalkeeper made good saves.”
did not have a big goal opportunity until the last moments of the match.
“When you introduce more strikers, you do it hoping they can create dangerous situations or have shots on target, but instead we lacked those elements. Admittedly, our forwards are not in the best shape at the moment and we created fewer chances with more strikers on the field than we did in the first half.”
Robin Gosens and Hans Hateboer are seriously injured and it looks like Matteo Pessinahas been added.
“It’s going to be a couple of months at least before we see them again. We have other solutions, some of which I used this evening. It would be disappointing to change the tactics, we can do it in a few games, but I’d prefer not to.”
30 attempts were made to score, but still not as much as Atalanta's 2-2 draw with Inter last week, which had more than 40 shots.
“It was more balanced with Inter, whereas this evening it was certainly affected by the very early goal. I saw a very strong Milan, quick and with characteristics that you don’t always see in Italy. In terms of pace and attacking movement, they become very dangerous.
“Every game has a different story, but Milan really impressed me tonight.”
