Before Fiorentina, Atalanta loses Scalvini. Cruciate injury and farewell to the European Championships

A season that Atalanta will remember forever ends with a painless home defeat. The season in which the Goddess managed to reach the much desired paradise of the first trophy in the Gasperini era, the Europa League won in Dublin against predictions but with an enthralling and indisputable performance, in which Ademola Lookman took on the role of great protagonist .

The Nigerian also scored in the 2-3 draw that Fiorentina inflicted on the Nerazzurri against a Gewiss team that was still dressed to the nines and certainly didn’t suffer from the knockout. What keeps Bergamo in suspense (but it’s a route that goes all the way to Coverciano) is rather the injury suffered at the end of the match by Giorgio Scalvini. A knee problem for the defender, a big problem with the cruciate ligaments: goodbye to the call-up for the European Championship (Gatti warms up in his place) but even the Goddess will lose him for a long time.

Meanwhile, Gasperini takes stock, also projecting himself into the intriguing UEFA Super Cup to play in the summer against Real Madrid: “Playing Real-Atalanta in Warsaw is a lot of stuff. And the most glorious team in the world, we will have worldwide attention, it is clear that the difficulty quotient is very high, but it is so extraordinary that a We were already thinking about it today. It’s perhaps the best way to end the season and think about the next one. We’ve moved forward step by step, knowing that next season will start with this event… we know that when we start again we will do it with this extraordinary race. “.
