Castagne: 'Extra Atalanta motivation'

Timothy Castagne admits Atalanta “have a little extra motivation” after their Coppa Italia exit at the hands of Fiorentina.

These teams met only last month in the Coppa Italia, the Viola winning 2-1 at the Stadio Franchi to reach the quarter-finals.

“We do have a little extra motivation because of the Coppa Italia, but we also want to make up for some recent negative results, as we know that we’ve got the quality,” Castagne told Sky Sport Italia.

A victory would allow Atalanta to break away in fourth place, as Roma were beaten 3-2 by Bologna last night.

“Today, we have to win, it’s the only option we are interested in. Every victory takes us further away from the chasing pack and not just Roma."
