Gian Piero Gasperini, the head coach of Atalanta, spoke about his hopes for the 1/8 League final against Real Madrid.
“This year’s matches will be held without the participation of spectators. It’s a shame that Atalanta fans are unable to fly across Europe. In Madrid, there will be a true festival.
Is it possible to be eliminated in the first match? We must consider the [upcoming] game. Concentrate solely on her and it would be much more challenging at a wedding. We want to compete with Real Madrid, so this game is very important to us.
The first half will reveal how the match’s equilibrium will grow. We need to find out how to avoid Real Madrid and what we can give them. We are ambitious, but we are up against a formidable adversary.
We have many strategies in place, intending to remain in the game for as long as possible. “We are not going to adjust,” Gasperini said.
