Gasperini: 'Atalanta were cursed!'

Gian Piero Gasperini felt their 2-1 home defeat to Cagliari was “cursed” after dominating the game in Bergamo.

The Orobici had numerous scoring opportunities, but only pulled one back with Papu Gomez in stoppages.

“It was like the carbon copy of last season’s loss to Udinese, a match that was quite simply cursed,” the Coach told Rai Sport.

“We must immediately find the strength to get back on track and put this behind us. Despite this result, we still end the first half of the season with a good number of points.

“This was a lost opportunity to close on the European places, but we’re still in the running.”
