Atalanta, Scalvini tegola and Gasperini announces another absence

Bad news in the Atalanta household. Giorgio Scalvini, in fact, injured in the last day of the championship against Napoli, underwent instrumental examinations that showed an injury of the muscle-tendon junction of the left hamstring and will surely miss the first leg semifinal against Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia.

But the problems for coach Gasperini do not end there. The Nerazzurri coach, in fact, will also have to renounce Charles De Ketelaere for the match against the Viola, as he himself announced in a press conference: "Tomorrow he will not be there; we will see on Cagliari".

"I expect a balanced match, they are two teams that know each other well, they have very specific characteristics – added the coach of the orobici -. We are in a good moment, we will have to be careful becauseé Fiorentina è a team of value, we must have the right concentration, it will beà a semi-final of the Cup".

"I always said that the Coppa Italia è the feasible trophy, I never thought about other trophies. We have reached the final twice, I think this is the fourth semifinal, we are making a very good path, then I never thought that a cup could certify or not what we have done" Gasperini commented.
