The Grifone are still only six points clear of the drop zone, but are fresh from a 1-1 draw with Roma, which they would’ve won if Antonio Sanabria’s stoppage-time penalty hadn’t been saved.
“The Roma game gave us confidence and made us realise the potential at our disposal. If we can repeat that performance, then we can great things,” Biraschi told Sky Sport Italia.
Atalanta are currently in fourth place and their centre-forward Duvan Zapata is competing for the Capocannoniere title on 22 Serie A goals.
“We need to all help each other out. Duvan Zapata has immense physical strength, pace and is really a complete striker. It’ll be difficult, but with some intelligent defending, we should be able to limit him.”
