Reja: ‘Another difficult game’

Atalanta Coach Edy Reja expects ‘another difficult game’ against Empoli tomorrow night.

The Orobici have started the season well, and currently sit a point above champions Juventus in the Serie A standings.

“We’re certainly expecting another very difficult game,” Reja admitted in his pre-match Press conference.

“We’re fine, the performance is there, we just have to fix some mental aspects and attention which has cost us some points.

“I think it’s just a matter of keeping it tight and being aware. The team is there, we just have to handle certain situations better.”

The former Lazio boss then gave his opinion of tomorrow’s opponents, who would move above Atalanta with a win.

“They’re a good team, they’ve been playing together for years and they’re very organised. They’re very compact in midfield, and have three dangerous players up-front, especially [Riccardo] Saponara.

“It will be tough, but we have our way of playing and we’re not going to change. I’d like to make a few changes from the last match, but I’ll have to properly evaluate everyone’s condition and then make the right choices.”
