The coach of the Goddess after the defeat against Villarreal: “We weren’t able to express ourselves at our best in matches where we usually do well”
He does not hide his regret, Gian Piero Gasperini. His Atalanta is out of the Champions League after the 3-2 suffered at home by Villarreal in the decisive match. The consolation is the Europa League, but Gasp is too disappointed after the game to think about the future. “There is regret, because we went out in a match that was within our reach,” says the coach a Prime Video.
“We didn’t do what we hoped for – says the 63-year-old manager -. Usually in competitions like this we are able to express ourselves at our best, this time we started very badly and we lost serenity and lucidity in proposing the game. We thought we could do well, but we improved too late. Muriel’s post would have given us some chances in the final, but it’s also true that in the 90 ‘we weren’t able to make the match, which was in our ropes. We weren’t able to express ourselves to everyone in the best possible way: we missed a little, when we managed to improve the game we created chances. After the 1-0 we had a good 10 ‘but for the whole first half we weren’t able to play well. Then we got 2-0 and the game became difficult. We lost the opportunity to get through the round ”.
Now Atalanta is concentrating on the championship and on Monday, when in Nyon they will discover the name of their opponent in the Europa League playoffs on 17 and 24 February: the Goddess will play their first home match against one of the second of the Europa League groups.
