The black and blue team could be four points from Vecchia Signora, but the draw against Verona still leaves him far from the fight.
The chances of Atalanta from fighting to the end the A series they begin to evaporate. The black and blue team searched by all means but finally did not pass the tie for 2-2 this Saturday before Verona. Thus, it was six units from the leader Juventus, with only four dates to play, although Vecchia Signora could stretch their difference on Monday when they take to the court against Lazio.
The truth is that the Bergamo team could have put more pressure on the Bianconeri: winning they got close to four units. And although they did a lot to win the duel at the Marc’Antonio Bentegodi Stadium, victory never came.
Atalanta was much superior and had the clearest situations. The Colombian Duván Zapata managed to open the scoring in the 50th minute, although quickly the homeowner would put tables with the goal of Pessina.
The draw was of little use to those of Gasperini, who went for everything in the final moments. However, those of Bergamo never found the winning goal, a little because of bad luck and a little because of a great day by the rival goalkeeper.
Thus, the fashion team in Italy, Atalanta, had to settle for a draw and will now seek to get points from Juventus Lazio on Monday to continue with the latent illusions of fighting the contest.
In addition to Zapata, two other South Americans made headlines in the Negriazules: the Argentines Papu Gómez and José Palomino. Meanwhile, Luis Muriel entered near the end.
