Gasp: 'Atalanta passed both tests'

Gian Piero Gasperini is glad Lyon have heard of Papu Gomez now and surprised Atalanta “got two positive results against the group favourites.”

After crushing Everton 3-0, the Orobici went to France and picked up a 1-1 draw against Olympique Lyonnais.

“It’s a great result for us in a very tough game, one of the most important sides in the competition, but over the course of the game we managed to resist their attacks well,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

Gomez: ‘A good point’

Atalanta’s Alejandro Gomez believes his team did well to secure a 1-1 draw at Chievo.

The Argentine forward came off the bench to score a late equaliser for La Dea from the penalty spot.

“It was quite a balanced game. Both teams had chances to score,” Gomez said of the Serie A contest at the Bentegodi.

“We had a few more chances in the second half, but a point is fine because it’s always hard against Chievo.”

Atalanta President Antonio Percassi confessed their 3-0 victory over Everton “will be remembered for a very long time.”

It was their first game back in European competition after 26 years and they dominated the Premier League big spenders.

Argentina snub Higuain again

Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain is once again left out of the Argentina squad, but Papu Gomez is included.

The Albiceleste face Peru and Ecuador next month in the final two games of CONMEBOL World Cup qualification.

Jorge Sampaoli’s side currently sit fifth, which would see them enter a play-off with New Zealand in November, but Chile lie just a point behind, and if Argentina slip to sixth they’d miss out on the tournament altogether.

Sampaoli has today named his squad for the two crunch matches, with Higuain again left out.

Amazing Atalanta

The Bergamo outfit outclassed Everton and could progress far in the Europa League, writes Nick Valerio.

The adventure continues. If last season’s quite astonishing fourth place finish hadn’t sunk in, the scale of the achievement will have come to life when Gian Piero Gasperini’s side ruthlessly took apart big-spending Everton.

In a group where Lyon are considered the favourites to qualify, both La Dea and the Toffees knew they were tussling to get a head start, and one team certainly laid down a dominant marker in what was a one-sided contest which proved Atalanta can be a real force in the Europa League.
