    Never underestimate the ability of a Serie A coach to cower once taking a 1-0 lead. Even the "offensive" ones.

    Atalanta only defended after the goal. It was expected that it can cost them.

    It's okay, massive respect to Atalanta in any case. You could see they are tired.

    Atalanta did well but they didn't pounce for the kill when they could have done so. Shame. We'll see how they fare next year and what happens with Ilicic who's effectively 1/3 of their team (Papu Gomez being another 1/3 and the rest of them making up the other third).

    Atalanta got unlucky and lucky at the same time if that makes sense. Unlucky with how they lost, lucky with the chances neymar missed.

    Gasp shit the bed and played defensive tonight, crazy.

    I don't want to be too critical of Atalanta because it's a miracle that they even made it this far, but Gasp totally got it wrong in the 2nd half. There was no way they could hold on for so long playing purely defensively against a team that has way more pace, quality, and depth.
    Fuck PSG and fuck Icardi. I hope they get dumped out in the next round like they deserve.

    The only thing didnt go Atalanta's way was Illicic's situation. They had everything to win this match, from PSG not having football for months to missing Di Maria, Verratti and Mpappe and Icardi playing 80 mins. In fact they were lucky they held on for that long.

    I don't think they played to defend. They just gased out. First half they pressed high with adrenaline of a big match pumping into the blood. Second half, they were simply outplayed. And when you are out of energy, have to defend Mbappe, you just do not have any energy left for attacking.

    Respect to Atalanta what an amazing run they have had and Iím so gutted for them.

    Canít stand this plastic team they were insufferable the entire match diving flopping and whining to the ref and celebrating their goals like they won the whole damn thing -_-

    Hoping Bayern win the whole thing as I can tolerate them more than farca, shitty and the french farmers.

    Not just the loss but the manner of that loss in the last minutes. Serie A taking its toll on all the teams. I would rest everyone till two days before the game if I were conte. Wonder how this will affect us next season too.

    Just hope neither City nor Psg win it. Fucking fake clubs splashing their billions and billions. Take Barcelona on that as well, but maybe if they win it, Messi will leave.

    Fact is they reached quarter final in their first season something that we cant even achieve for the past 2 years. So let's not be bitter about underachieving and be happy for our fellow Italian club that they've had such a "success" in their first season.

    Good news is, in case we don't win the EL, that Atalanta will definitely be behind us in coefficients.

    typical serie a team, defending all game and losing in last minutes

    well, if you want to defend only and play hard do it right, like atletico madrid

    Well, you can't play total offense against team like that for 90 minutes. They were out of gas around 60 minute. They naturally had to drop, because gasp relies on high pressing. But to do high pressing you have to have gas. No gas, no high pressing == deep defense and only a miracle could save them.

    Atalanta were very lucky until that 89th minute, but they had it until then. But after that, half of that team (the one that wasn't subbed off) was walking on fumes. Once they conceded it was game over. Had they not conceded another in 93rd, they wouldn't last 5 minutes of extra time.

    Congrats to Atalanta, they did 10x more what people expected them to do. But, like I've said numerous times here, once Gomez and Ilicic are gone, Atalanta is done. It's so clear, without those 2, Atalanta is above average team and all the magic is gone. Players like Ilicic and Gomez, aka late bloomers (like Toni), they are very hard to get by and only players like that (read - very cheap as they didn't fulfill their potential late in their career) can be aquired by teams like Atalanta with their budget. They won't be able to get players like that for the next 20-30 years. Lecce, Chievo, Udinese, Genoa, Cagliari, Palermo are still waiting for their time to return.

    Next year will be very hard for them to get to CL. jube and Inter are out of reach. Then Lazio I expect (with Inzaghi staying) will be even better (especially with David Silva there and most likely all of the team staying) and then you have Roma, Napoli, Milan and Atalanta, plus some unexpected team or two (you always get those every season) to fight for that one spot.

    I'm not saying that with pleasure, just stating reality for all those around the world singing praises to Atalanta, like they have become another juggernaut of italian football. In a few years it will be Torino or someone, then Hellas Verona and so on and so on.

    As to PSG, I soooo expect them to go out in the semis. Can't wait.

    Wanna bet they won't reach quarter finals of CL again in next 20 years?

    You can never expect a good run for any team in the world. Atalanta or Inter, makes no difference. This is sport.

    But the difference that is being spoken about is that Inter, once set, will be one of the favourites year after year. Atalanta will never achieve that, simply because of the stature of the club / sponsorship / world fanbase. They had a season that happens once every 50 years for a team like that. It just happend this year.

    So reaching 8 best in CL is a "success"?

    If Conte got us there and got kicked out in such a bad manner, would you call that a success?

    And that wasn't the point to begin with.

    1. I focused on this exact game and Atalanta were kicked out deservedly.

    2. I was against that "real nerazzurri" crap circling around.

    For Atalanta even being in the Top 8 of Serie A is a monumental success...
