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.
