Sampdoria European hopes diminish with Atalanta win
Sampdoria chances of a European position were held in check after suffering a 2-1 loss in the Serie A to Atalanta at Stadio Luigi Ferraris on March 10, 2019.
Atalanta took the lead on 50 minutes after Josip Ilicic threaded through the middle to release Duvan Zapata to find the back of the net but were pegged back from Fabio Quagliarella but Audero parried shot from Hans Hateboer’s powerful cross from the right, found Robin Gosens at the back post to score.
Speaking after the 2-1 win over Sampdoria Gian Piero Gasperini told Dazn:
“There are still 11 games left and it is soon, it is undeniable that having won here and with Fiorentina, there has been a bit of detachment, but the league is short and complicated: we must be careful because they are happening too many strange and situations that can change the outcome”.
