Atalanta manager Gian Piero Gasperini sounded over the moon after his side managed to get a positive result at the Stadio Olimpico despite Roma dominating for the majority of the match. The Bergamaschi held on to their one goal lead and left the capital with three points in the bag and top position in Serie A’s standings.
“This is a fantastic win and our position in the table is equally fantastic,” he told the media after the final whistle.
“Despite several changes in the summer, we are now maintaining excellent defensive positioning,” Gasperini continued. “However, if we want to stay on top we must play another brand of football. Defense and counter-attacking are not enough to win.”
