Atalanta inspired everyone both on and off the field this season, in Italy and Europe, as Owen Diana pays tribute to club that just keeps getting stronger.
Brilliance in Bergamo
After a 2018-19 campaign that was the best since their founding in 1907, the only way seemed to be down for Atalanta this time around. The added challenge of a Champions League debut would surely stretch the limits of a squad unaccustomed to juggling multiple competitions at once.
Yet, La Dea have been able to have their cake and eat it too. They are through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, where they will face French giants PSG. Domestically they have established a club record for points and matched last year’s third place. All the while, their spellbinding football has captivated onlookers and helped to banish Serie A’s ultra-defensive reputation.
