Bologna boss Stefano Pioli has conceded that his side will be up against it when they face a 'difficult' Atalanta side tomorrow.
The Rossoblu travel to Atleti Azzurri d'Italia on Saturday afternoon looking for the three points that could take them into the top half of the table.
And the Coach has admitted that it will be a tough match against La Dea.
“I have to congratulate Atalanta,” he told a Press conference. “They are always a determined team who are difficult to deal with.
“They are a team that are compact at both ends of the pitch. They have played a good championship.
“We will try and play as well as possible to bring home a positive result.”
