Lyosha, how is that ?! “Atalanta” was embarrassed, and Miranchuk with her
It turns out that 3: 0 along the way is not a guarantee of victory. Amazing match!
Russian midfielder Alexey Miranchuk played another match for the Italian “Atalanta”. On the eve of the Bergamascus fans on Twitter, the 25-year-old footballer was recognized as the best player of the club in January, but head coach Gian Piero Gasperini left him on the bench again for the game against Torino. As a result, Miranchuk appeared on the field in the second half, and his Atalanta squandered a three-goal advantage over an opponent.
The Russian was very close to a goal
The Atalanta started very briskly. By the 21st minute, Gian Piero Gasperini’s team was leading with a score of 3: 0 thanks to the shots of Josip Ilicic, Robin Gosens and Luis Muriel. It seemed that the Bergamascans would not be prevented from leaving the field as winners. However, at the end of the first half, Andrei Belotti and Gleison Bremer managed to score two goals in the locker room.
After the break, Atalanta started to play more disciplined defense. In the 58th minute, Gasperini removed Josip Ilicic from the field, and instead released Alexei Miranchuk. After 10 minutes, the Russian created a good moment for Duvan Zapata, but the Colombian striker shot hard past the goal. Already in the 77th minute, the ex-midfielder of Lokomotiv was himself close to excelling. The Russian got the ball in the penalty area and famously shot from under the Torino defender, hitting the goal post of Salvatore Sirigu.
And in the 84th minute, after filing a free kick, Torino leveled the score thanks to an accurate header by Federico Bonazzoli. The match ended in an effective draw, which, of course, left the team’s fans extremely unhappy. Here are some typical lines from Twitter.
“On business. I laugh so as not to cry. An excellent match performed by “Torino, who never gave up, while our guys already believed that the game is already in their pocket.”
Especially fans of Atalanta made fun of Gian Piero Gasperini.
Miranchuk’s team cannot win in the third game in a row. The Bergamasks remained in seventh place in Serie A with 37 points. It seems that Gasperini’s time to change something. Maybe in the second semi-final match of the Italian Cup against Napoli it is worth releasing Alexei at the start?
