Remo Freuler and Atalanta remain in a very good 2-2 draw against Lautaro Martinez’s Inter in the league.
Atalanta Bergamo will be looking for a first against Young Boys on Wednesday night (6:45 p.m.): a victory at their stadium in the Champions League. La Dea never did. This is to say the freshness of the training led by Gian Piero Gasperini.
This is only her third appearance in C1, but in three years. It had certainly won a home match two years ago (against Dinamo Zagreb), but it then had to be exported to Milan, during the renovation of its Gewiss Stadium, long known under the otherwise more resonant name of “Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia ”. Last year, in a squad with Liverpool, Ajax Amsterdam and Midtjylland, Atalanta had certainly played at home, but never managed to win a game there. On the other hand, they were full on the road, until they caught Real Madrid in the round of 16.
“Among my friends and family, no one told me anything about this meeting”
That’s to say the quality of a team that is now highly regarded in Italy. His offensive play, willingly unbalanced, seduces and works, with a 3rd place obtained last May. Remo Freuler, in the middle, is the vice-captain and one of the main elements: “We are very well at the moment, we are coming out of a very good match in Milan against Inter”, underlined the Swiss international in conference press, in reference to Saturday’s 2-2 which could very well have turned to the advantage of his team.
The former FC Lucerne player was not placed on the stage by chance on Tuesday. Perfect for keeping the Swiss media happy, ideal for answering questions from the Italian press about a team that only enjoys very relative interest on the other side of the Alps. The Glarus did not come to terms with the question: “They are a valuable team that have won their championship four times,” he summed up of YB. Is this a special match for him? “Among my friends and family, no one told me anything about this meeting,” he smirked. They are all fans of another team and they just told me to beat Young Boys. “
And what can Remo Freuler say about his partners in the national team? “Fassnacht was with us at the Euro, but he won’t be here tomorrow. There is Aebischer, who is a good player. There is also defender Zesiger, but he is injured. And then there’s Garcia who goes back and forth a lot. But I can’t really say more about them, because I don’t know them that well. ” Failed attempt, therefore.
It must be said that at European level Atalanta interests more than YB. “With my staff, we have been following this team for many years and for different reasons,” said David Wagner, the coach of the Bernese and necessarily sensitive to the somewhat unusual game of this team where central defenders can find themselves in position to score in any action. The German technician necessarily noted it. It is better, to force the Bergamasques to always run after their first.
