Gian Piero Gasperini concedes Atalanta weren’t at their best in the 2-1 defeat to SPAL, but “it’s a very difficult and finely-balanced league this year.”
This was an entirely unexpected defeat to the club propping up the table, especially as the last two home games ended 5-0 against Milan and Parma.
Josip Ilicic had given the Bergamo boys an early lead, only for Andrea Petagna and Mattia Valoti to turn it around.
