Gasperini: It took a great Atalanta to recover the game
Atalanta head coach Gian Piero Gasperini was beaming after his side came from three goals down to draw 3-3 against Roma.
Edin Dzeko double and Stephane El-Shaarawy had given the Giallarossi a three-goal lead but Di Francesco side, as usual, let Oribici back into the game with Timothy Castagne, Raphael Toloi and Duvan Zapata scoring the equaliser after ballooning a penalty a minute later.
“Today, Roma exploited our weaknesses, we have granted many spaces and we have lacked the quality in the passes and the shot that we usually have, at least in the first half. He told Sky Sport Italia.
“We created and they marked. It took a great Atalanta to recover the game. Apart from the skill of Roma players, we were undoubtedly mistaken for the exits that opened the field for the Giallorossi who always left.
“Usually we do not make all these concessions, in the second half we have been much more precise and we have straightened the race to the point of having regret for not winning it.
“we have a problem with the penalties, we fail to score them and we lose opportunities, fortunately, Duvan has redeemed himself after 40 seconds”, but we thought we would have managed the same to take it back.
