Last season undoubtedly was the best one ever for Atalanta, as they finished third in the Serie A, holding the best attack of the league, and achieved an historical qualification to the next Champions League Group stage, while also enjoying a great Coppa Italia run. With the campaign barely over, several clubs came to the management's doors asking for their stars, Zapata and Ilicic above all, and for the architect of their triumphs, Gian Piero Gasperini, but all their offers were immediately rejected. To prove how ambitious they are, they confirmed their key players and extended the deal with the coach, while guaranteeing him a competitive squad for the season ahead. Therefore, they tried strengthening their squad in every department. First of all, they had Pasalic’s loan from Chelsea renewed, as he had performed decently, especially towards the end of the past season. Moreover, they added some needed depth in the attack, acquiring Muriel, who can be unstoppable in his best days but is too discontinuous. They invested plenty of cash also on the talented Malinovsky, who might become a protagonist in the midfield, and a valid cover for Ilicic, whose past campaign was limited by injuries. In order to fund those arrivals, they had to sell the Italian international Mancini, but he was wisely replaced by the expert Skrtel, thus injecting some highly-needed European experience into the defence. Considering how injury-prone Masiello, Palomino and Toloi tend to be, Atalanta need at least one more defender and, possibly, one more attacking midfielder.

Target


Repeating the past campaign might be impossible. Another top 6 finish and bright Champions League and Coppa Italia campaigns seem more likely.

Season Review
2018/2019

№3: Atalanta

The story of the season is surely Atalanta who achieved a historic 3rd place finish and Champions League football against all the odds. A key characteristic of the Bergamo Boys has been their resilience. Before Serie A even kicked off, they suffered the huge disappointment of being knocked out of the Europa League qualifiers on penalties. That blow affected the team who failed to win any of their opening 6 league games and didn't even score in 5 of them. There were doubts about Gian Piero Gasperini's future at the club and no one could have predicted the way he would turn things around. Atalanta ended the season as the highest scorers in the Italian top flight with 77 goals - ousting the likes of Inter, AC Milan, Roma and Lazio to finish in 3rd place and also reach the Coppa Italia final. So how did they do it? Gasperini will deservedly take all the plaudits and is certainly the Manager of the Season. Despite losing some first team regulars in the summer, the veteran coach does what he always does - gets on with it and creates new stars with very limited resources. He wasn't deterred by the poor start and stuck to his principles. He showed the bravery to continue playing an aggressive, attacking style of football which would pay off over the course of the season. Much of Atalanta's style revolved around raiding wing-backs Hans Hateboer and Timothy Castagne who have been excellent all season. Gianluca Mancini has stepped up the plate after the departure of Mattia Caldara and the young defender already looks like a leader at the back. Josip Ilicic has always had talent but now he has now added the consistency with another excellent season. Duvan Zapata has found a home in Bergamo and is finally living up to his potential - becoming one of the most lethal strikers in Italy with 23 goals. The man who knits it all together for Atalanta is their captain - Alejandro Gomez. His energetic, dynamic style sums up everything great about this team. "Papu" finished joint-top of the assist charts with 11 and also struck 7 goals to put himself in the conversation for Player of the Season. Truth be told, anyone in this side could be in the Team of the Season. The only thing missing was a piece of silverware which just eluded them with an unlucky late defeat to Lazio in the Coppa Italia final. Even after that disappointment, they were able to show the resilience to carry on in Serie A and get the points they needed to qualify for the Champions League. The hope right now is that they will be able to keep their best players. The fact that Gasperini has confirmed he will stay at the club is a huge boost towards that goal and a massive statement of intent - especially with bigger clubs sniffing around for his services. It is fitting that he will be the man to take this adventure into Europe's premier club competition.
