BERGAMO – Atalanta wins the direct clash against Rome and mortgages the Champions League for next season. Thanks to this success, the Nerazzurri have moved to six more with Roma with the direct clash in favor. So practically there are three games of distance between the Bergamo and the Giallorossi. In addition, Rome is in free fall since its start of 2020, numbers in hand, is from the relegation zone.

Atalanta-Roma 2-1, Dzeko deceives the Giallorossi but then Palomino and Pasalic sign the comeback.

Yet Roma had played a great first half, closing it deservedly on the result of one to zero. Dzeko had unlocked the game after a wrong stop from Palomino. The Bosnian center forward flew over to Gollini and beat him with an unstoppable low shot. For Dzeko, it is the 101st goal with the Giallorossi shirt.

In the second half, everything changed. Roma suffered the equalizer and practically disappeared immediately from the field. The Giallorossi are very fragile from the mental point of view and after suffering the 1-1 they have not been able to react. Also because they played against the best attack in Serie A and against the team that pulls the most goals in our league.

So the nerazzurri signed a great comeback thanks to the goals of Palomino, who thus redeemed his sensational error on the occasion of the Dzeko goal, and Pasalic, who just entered in the place of an extinct Duvan Zapata. Gasperini guessed the change and deservedly won the game. Now the music of the Champions League is at home in Bergamo …
