Atalanta’s President claims ‘half of Italy’ will be supporting his club when they take on Juventus this evening.
Victory for Juve would see them move four points clear at the top of Serie A, but Antonio Percassi has challenged Atalanta to blow the title race wide open again.
“Half of Italy supporting us? I know, I know,” he told Tuttomercatoweb.
“I expect a good performance from the lads and we’ll play while thinking about our place in the table, which is already good and can give us something important this season.
“There’s one thing that can’t be questioned: the Coach plays every game to bring home as many points as possible, and that’ll be the case against Juventus too.
“Certainly, the gaps have closed for the Champions League and Europa League places. We’ll give it a go, and I believe that the head-to-head games will be very important.
“We’ll be playing at home against Sampdoria, in front of our fans, and they’ve shown in Europe that they make us feel good.”
