Italiano explains how Fiorentina neutralised Atalanta

Vincenzo Italiano explains how Fiorentina prompted Atalanta so many issues within the Coppa Italia semi-final, however Marco Carnesecchi made ‘unbelievable saves.’

The Viola largely dominated the match, however with poor ending and a few heroic goalkeeping from Carnesecchi, the solely distinction between them was the long-range Rolando Mandragora screamer.

“Carnesecchi made two unbelievable saves on Nico Gonzalez, he’s an amazing goalkeeper, and clearly at this degree you’re up in opposition to champions,” Italiano instructed Mediaset.

“Our first half was wonderful, we by no means allowed Atalanta to get a foothold within the recreation, then Scamacca got here on and held the ball up higher. The primary spherical is in our favour, we wanted a victory after a tough interval, the crew responded nicely and we’re assured going into the second match.”

It is a minimal result in take into the second leg in Bergamo on April 24, however nonetheless a bonus in Fiorentina’s third consecutive Coppa Italia semi-final.

“Even when we had scored one other purpose, I stay satisfied the second leg can be very robust, as Atalanta can pin you again in your individual half. We take the victory and know we want a unprecedented match, particularly as there’s a Closing up for grabs.”

Fiorentina’s techniques made Atalanta work more durable than maybe they’ve carried out for a lot of months, so it’s one thing that Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool may do with watching forward of the Europa League quarter-final.

“After we play three in opposition to three upfront, the lads have the liberty to roam and browse the conditions as they develop. They did it very nicely at the moment, not permitting Atalanta to win the duels, as after we lose these, then Atalanta swarm throughout us,” defined Italiano.

“We needed to stretch them out and make them work more durable, as in any other case Lookman and Koopmeiners can run at you and trigger issues. When the strikers begin the press, that conjures up all of the others too. We knew we needed to be aggressive and win the ball again rapidly.”

Sadly, there’s a recurring drawback at Fiorentina, which is that they create so many scoring alternatives and end solely a fraction of them.

“There may be a lot at stake, we might’ve been pleased with any win and the 1-0 is passable.”

Fiorentina had received solely one of many final six Serie A video games and have been coming off a 2-1 residence defeat to Fiorentina.
