Atalanta Coach Edy Reja felt a red card after five minutes “ruined the game” in their 3-0 defeat to Fiorentina.
Gabriel Paletta was sent off for a penalty incident – although the foul appeared to be more Alejandro Gomez’s fault – and it was downhill from there.
“It was difficult to do well when down to 10 men for basically the entire match, but even then we created a couple of scoring opportunities that we didn’t make the most of,” Reja told Rai Sport.
