They were fairly defeated 2-0 to Inter Milan. In 30′ Sportiello confirmed his exceptional form by fending off Palacio’s penalty. Ten minutes later he could do nothing in unbelievable kick from Osvaldo. The “bergamaschi” pressed in the second half, lost chances to equalize, but in 87′ Hernanes finalized the score.
“If we had equalized with the chances we lost, everything would be different,” said Stefano Colantuono. “Juventus and Roma are the two best teams in the category and it is difficult to deal with them. The only way to have chances is to play offensively. We start from the last good appearances, although the results were not corresponding” claimed the coach of Atalanta.
They needed the help of referee Giacomelli who gave a nonexistent penalty in 18′ and Juventus scored. Vidal in 64′ doubled his personal goals and his team, while the final 3-0 was formed by Lichtsteiner in 85′.
They achieved the “5 out of 5” holding the zero in the defense for 7th consecutive match in Serie A.
Buffon said that it will be difficult for the team to repeat last year’s success.
On Wednesday, they travel to Madrid for the difficult match against Atletico.
“We must be serious, because in Bergamo no one wins easily. Firstly we need to get the three points today and then think about the games against Atletico Madrid and Roma. However, I do not believe that the match against Roma will be decisive. I want to get the victories and points. The spectacle is not by concern” Massimiliano Allegri said.
