In an interview with Atlanta coach Gasperini a few days ago, he talked about the comparison between Atlanta this season and last season. He said: "Atlanta this season is stronger than last season."
Gasperini said: "The current Atlanta team is stronger than last season? I must say yes, our awareness and belief have increased. From this perspective, we are stronger than last season."
"Last season we won the third place in Serie A. Although we did not say at the beginning of the season that we must take the third place, we never back down. If we defeated Juventus last season, then we would definitely fight for the Serie A champion. Shocking."
"This season, the cooperation between our players has become more tacit, and we have introduced a lot of strong support. They are really strong. If Ilicic can also get back to last season's form, we will be able to achieve important goals."
In the 32nd round of last season's Serie A, Atalanta led Juventus twice in away games, but in the end Cristiano Ronaldo helped Juventus with a penalty kick before the end. Atalanta regretted a 2-2 draw with Juventus.
