Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini discussed the impact of seeing Roma battle it out with Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League semifinal on his team ahead of the final in Dublin.

During today’s pre-match interview with Sky Sport, Gasperini said, “Roma gave us confidence because they came close to going through.”

“Then the two matches took a different turn, both in the first leg and in the second leg.”

“They had overturned the 2-0 lead from the first leg. Despite the loss, Roma certainly did well.”
