Jakarta (ANTARA) – Coach Gian Piero Gasperini underlined that Juventus did not do better than Atalanta in the Italian Cup final played at the Olympic Stadium in Rome, Thursday morning WIB.

“I don’t think Atalanta played badly, far from it. Our opponents certainly didn’t do more than us that evening to win it,” Gasperini said on Thursday, quoted by Football Italia.

In this match, Atalanta had to be willing to concede a quick goal scored by Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic when the match had only been going for four minutes.

After being one goal behind, Atalanta continued to try to find an equaliser, but Juventus, when they managed to take the lead, immediately put in place a solid defense so that the score remained at 1-0 for Juventus department until the end of the match.

“We faced a strong opponent, who took the lead first and defended very well. I think Atalanta played well, we took the initiative for a long time and we weren’t able to create many scoring chances, but we however had the opportunity to change the situation”, explained Gasperini.

The Italian coach continued by saying he was very sorry for not having been able to bring the Italian Cup to Bergamo and this happened due to various factors.

In addition to Juventus’ solid defense line, another factor that influenced Atalanta’s failure to win was the lack of speed in the ball flow of Ademola Lookman and colleagues.

“We are disappointed, but not too much, about this match. We played our game, it was a narrow defeat, of course, but we still have important objectives to achieve in Serie A and the Europa League,” said Gasperini.

“We will find Scamacca again, but losing De Roon because Kolasinac is out is a problem. I am very sad for the players, because without a doubt we will miss him a lot without some individuals,” he concluded.
