In the name of De Ketelaere, back to the great level of Bruges, here is EuroAtalanta again. Five hundred and twenty-five days later, Dea returns to the Europa League and immediately shows great desire to go far. The 2-0 win against the Polish champions is close for the team Gasperini that he created 10 free scoring balls, Regulate the Rakow thanks to your own headers unleashed CDK and Ederson. And all this without the two permanent center forwards in the squad: Scamacca, who is unavailable for a month, and Touré, who is unavailable until the end of December. After the defeat in Florence, Gasperini asked his team to find a soul in the championship away from home, as the Dea suffered two defeats in three games away in Bergamo. In Europe, however The soul was re-wrapped on a grand scale. The dominance of the Bergamo players was clear, with only Lederman challenging him, who however found a great response from Musso on his way, more on the ball than ever before. The absolute star was De Ketelaere, 2 goals and 1 assist in 5 gameswelcomed by the ovations of an enthusiastic audience when Gasperini deservedly gave him the last catwalk at the end.
De Ketelaere is unlocked
Concentrated, sometimes aggressive, always carried by a typical Gasperinian rhythm, Atalanta annulled the defeat against Fiorentina with a performance that lives up to his ambitions. And if it hadn’t been for at least four excellent saves from Kovacevic, the Polish deficit would have been bigger. Ruggeri is also at the top: with his third assist of the season, the U21 national player is increasingly dominating the field. These are the matches They praise Gasperini’s plans: sudden verticalizations, competitive spirit without breaks, maneuvers always inspired by that great director called Teun Koopmeiners, role reversal in attack with CDK and Lookman starting as half-forwards supporting Muriel, and in the second half Muriel and Lookman as half-forwards in support from CDK, who had already played the role of center forward in Bruges. Not wrong, but true: the dynamics of the goal in Rakow confirm it. Psychologically, it is as if Charles has released his blockages and regained his self-confidence and strong in the trust that Atalanta and especially his coach have placed in him since the beginning of the Bergamo experience. If De Ketelaere is Percassi’s big chance, They are already starting to win it. And we are only at the beginning.
