Verona-Atalanta 0-1, Koopmeiners stretches the yellow and blue

The Scala team remains with only one point in the standings, while Atalanta rises to 7

Atalanta beat Verona 1-0 in a match on the third day of Serie A played at the ‘Bentegodi’ stadium in the city of Verona. Atalanta obtains the second victory of their championship thanks to a goal from Koopmeiners in the 5 ‘of the second half. After a bad first half, Gasperini wakes him up with half-time changes and gets the desired reaction. The orobics miss doubling on several occasions and risk until the end. A good first half and an excellent performance by Lazovic are not enough for a generous Verona. The Scala team remains with only one point in the standings, while Atalanta rises to 7 and reaches Milan, Lazio, Turin and Rome in the lead, waiting for Fiorentina-Napoli tonight. Cioffi’s team starts strong with a strong pressure across the board that manages to defuse all the offensive potential of the Goddess for a whole time. The only two occasions in the first fraction are from the Venetians, who first sting with a sharp left from Lasagna, and then hit Musso’s goal with a shot from Ilic that is lost just wide.

Gasperini wastes no time and replenishes his attack with the inputs of Muriel and Ederson, who detect the disappointing Lookman and Soppy. A change of the guard that gives greater quality to the attack: the inertia changes, but the game of the champion is still needed to unlock the match. To serve it is Koopmeiners, who unlocks the score with a splendid left-handed from twenty-five meters who leaves no way to Montipò. Verona does not resign and Lazovic, after a movement to converge, takes full advantage of the crossbar with a conclusion that had completely put the Atalantino goalkeeper out of action. However, Atalanta has on its side the prairies that open wide on the counterattack: Ederson baskets a couple of potential knockout shots, like Toloi close to the ninetieth. Verona pushes until the end, but does not break through the Nerazzurri wall: three very heavy points for Gasperini, Cioffi can console himself with the best Verona of the season.
