BERGAMO – The Atalanta was included in Group C with Manchester City , Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Zagreb . Good draw for the Goddess. The Nerazzurri were at the first participation in the Champions League and for this they started in the last band. The Bergamo people could have fished a group of iron and instead they only fished a big one, that is the City of Guardiola. Gasperini's team should play second place with Shakhtar. Dinamo Zagreb looks like the poorest team in the group.
Atalanta qualified for the top European club competition for the first time in its history and did so at the end of a brilliant championship.
The Bergamo men classified on the lowest step of the podium, in third place in the standings after two big names like Juventus and Napoli. Not only that, the Nerazzurri have closed the championship over Inter and have excluded two teams of the caliber of Rome and Milan from the Champions League.
The season of the Bergamo club was memorable. The team coached by Gasperini closed the championship in third place in the standings and even touched the conquest of the Italian Cup. The Nerazzurri surrendered only to Lazio in the final, in Rome.
Despite the extraordinary championship last year, prudence prevails in the Nerazzurri home. "Our ambitions? Salvation! ".
Gian Piero Gasperini's joke follows the thought of the patron Antonio Percassi, who on Thursday in an interview with L'Eco di Bergamo had underlined the importance of the minimum goal: “The president is right: 40 points, if they are enough, and then all the rest. It is necessary to confirm the hunger to be protagonists, the same hunger that at the end of the last championship led us to 9 victories and 4 draws ".
The following are the rounds of the next Champions League 2019 – 2020 edition. The Goddess, at the first participation in the top European club competition, took part in the draw from the fourth and final bracket.
