There's Gomez with Ilicic
Gasperini, still without Zapata, prefers Palomino to Masiello in defense and Gomez to Malinovskyi to support Ilicic behind Muriel. In the Hellas the doubts concerning the advanced department are dissolved in favor of Zaccagni and Di Carmine, who have the upper hand over Verre and Stepinski. Verona immediately confirms the excellent summer impressions in these first months of the season. The Juric team, short and aggressive, prevents Atalanta from developing its usual game.
Atalanta, Gasperini: "Good win, with Shakhtar as a final"
Di Carmine is one of the protests
The only real chance for the Orobici comes on a wrong disengagement of the defense of the Hellas at 11 ', when Muriel devours the advantage kicking on Silvestri from a close position. For the rest, the Scaligers almost never appear in distress and at the 23rd minute they pass with Di Carmine, who receives in the center area on a lineout and beats Gollini. Atalanta has every right to protest, given that Verona's joke goes well beyond the point where the ball came out and with two balls on the field, but Valeri confirms the goal after the Var's silent check.
Jewel of Malinovsky, equalized the Goddess
Gasperini also has to deal with Ilicic's muscle injury, forced to leave his job in Malinovskyi. The Nerazzurri try to increase the pressure, without creating too many apprehensions for Verona. To re-establish parity an individual game would be needed and the newly entered player would extract it from the cylinder: the Ukrainian gets out of the box and a left-handed man explodes and sacks at seven. Galvanized by peers, Atalanta started the second half with a firm air, but Verona did not show reverential fears and when it could start again with danger.
Muriel responds to Di Carmine
At 56 'Amrabat, walled in the area after having perhaps tried too many dribbles, touches on the new advantage, which comes a minute later still with Di Carmine. Pessina takes advantage of a hole in the center of the Bergamo defense to serve the ex-Perugia striker on the second post, who corrects to slip in the net scoring his first double in Serie A. The goal shakes the Atalanta: Gasperini's men increase the pressure , at 64 'they find the draw on a penalty awarded with the Var for knocking of Chestnuts and transformed by Muriel, and continue to push. The key episode is the second yellow card to Dawidowicz, who at 86 minutes leaves his team outnumbered for a naive foul against Barrow.
The expulsion of Dawidowicz
Decides Djimsiti in recovery
Atalanta believes in it and after an endless duel between Gomez and Silvestri, always won by the Scala goalkeeper, he goes into full recovery with a goal set by his three defenders. Palomino verticalizes for Toloi that is side by side for Djimsiti, cold in the net. For the Goddess the fourth place, waiting for the result of Cagliari, is again one step away and, remaining in the Champions League, the comeback success represents the best viaticum for the decisive challenge on Wednesday at Shakhtar Donetsk.
