Gomez: ‘Atalanta always want more’

Photo Credit: football Italia Alejandro ‘Papu’ Gomez tried to identify what keeps Atalanta completing comebacks and surpassing expectations. “We always want to do more.”
You can’t keep La Dea down, as once again they fought back from a trailing situation to beat Roma 2-1 and open up a six-point buffer in fourth place.
Technically, it’s really seven points, because if two teams finish level, their position is decided by head-to-head record.
Atalanta beat Roma 2-0 at the Olimpico and 2-1 in Bergamo, so have by far the advantage in that race.
“The strength of this group for a few years now is that we don’t rest on our laurels, we always want to do more,” Papu told DAZN on his 32nd birthday.

How Atletico Aim to Upset Liverpool

Photo Credit: Bleacher ReportLiverpool look unstoppable. Jurgen Klopp’s team are reigning UEFA Champions League holders. They’re on track to smash Manchester City’s record 100-points tally in the Premier League and are on course to emulate Arsene Wenger’s “Invincibles” from the 2003-2004 campaign in going unbeaten all season long.
It’s difficult to detect a weakness in them. They’re a fearsome side with several ways to fillet opposition teams and the deadliest attacking trident in world football—Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.
Atletico Madrid—who they face in the UEFA Champions League at the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday—would be forgiven for running scared, but it’s not something a Diego Simeone team would ever entertain.
