Atalanta will remember the past season for a long time as they only fell from the second rung of the Serie A ladder, losing the very last game against Inter, and failing to achieve the Champions League semifinals, running out of steam in injury time against Paris Saint Germain. Moreover, in the domestic league they managed to score an incredible 98 goals, thus holding by far the best attack of the competition. Ambitious Atalanta management tried to learn from what went wrong in the past campaign in order to further improve their performances in the new season and become a candidate for the title. The matches against Inter and Paris Saint Germain taught them that they need more depth in the squad, and so they tried to strengthen themselves over the summer, while trying to keep all their stars. And, in the case of supporters’ idol Papu Gomez, it was the player himself who refused massive amounts of Arabian money to continue with the Goddess. Thus far, coach Gasperini has lost only Castagne, a full-back who provided back-up to regulars Hateboer and Gosens. The pair were said to be leaving but they are still at the club with newly-arrived Piccini and Reca ready to step in. Moreover, central midfielder Tameze also returned to his parent club after never really earning himself Gasperini’s trust. Centre-back Romero arrived on loan from Juventus and is expected to increase the options at the back while attacking midfielder Miranchuk, from Lokomotiv Moscow, will give the coach one more arrow for the attack. While waiting for Ilicic to overcome the bout of depression that kept him out for a big chunk of the past campaign. With Gollini out injured for some time, Atalanta are on the hunt for a valid goalkeeper while at least one more forward and full-back are set to arrive before the end of the transfer campaign.

Target


Atalanta will fight for another top 4 finish and a glorious European campaign. They might have the depth needed for achieving both results.

Season Review
2019/2020

№3: Atalanta

Atalanta managed to steal the show again in Italy. It seemed impossible for them to top their historic previous season but Le Dea finished in 3rd place again with an extra 9 points and an astonishing 98 goals scored. Gian Piero Gasperini's brand of high octane attacking football made this modestly assembled group of players arguably the most "must see" team in Europe. The Europa League was a stage that Atalanta failed on last season and they initially looked ill-equipped to deal with the even greater task of the Champions League this term. They lost their opening three group games - including a 4-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb and a 5-1 hammering at Manchester City. Gasperini's high pressing forward thinking style was being written off as being "too naive" at this level but the veteran coach never wavered from his principles and his side made it work - qualifying from their group with a terrific 3-0 away win at Shakhtar Donetsk. Atalanta's league form stuttered towards Christmas but a monumental 5-0 victory over AC Milan in their last game of the year was a big moment. They lost just once in Serie A in 2020 until the final day of the season when they were ultimately pipped to 2nd place in a decider with Inter. In the meantime, Le Dea also bulldozered their way into the Champions League quarter-finals - scoring 4 times in each leg against Valencia in the last 16. The big story off the pitch was the Coronavirus pandemic and Bergamo was one of the worst hit locations. Atalanta lifted the city with 6 straight wins in the league after the restart. They came so close to a fairytale place in the last 4 of Europe's premier club competition but ultimately fell in the closing minutes to the embarrassment of riches at Paris Saint Germain. There were again so many heroes for Le Dea this season. Hans Hateboer and Robin Gosens continued to illustrate the added importance of full-backs in the modern game. The German contributed a superb tally of 10 goals from left wing-back. Duvan Zapata led the line superbly again but Josip Ilicic topped the goalscoring charts despite being injured for the run-in. He was badly missed against PSG in the Champions League - having scored 4 goals in one game at Valencia in the previous round. Papu Gomez remains the metronome of this incredible team - everything goes through the little Argentine orchestrator who at 32 years of age continues to produce the best performances of his career and is a leading candidate for Serie A Player of the Season again. Gasperini has now seemingly established Atalanta as a top 4 side in Italy - could a trophy be next?
