On the pitch at 15 Turin-Spezia and Venice-Atalanta
The recovery with Turin in the middle of two dangerous crossroads-hi with Venice and Salernitana, starting from the lagoon of the former Paolo Zanetti and Mattia Caldara. The first three beaches along the sea of hopes decide whether the harbor of Europe for Atalanta, at 5-6 points for the moment (Fiorentina ahead in direct clashes), will still be accessible in the last face in Spezia, Milan and Empoli. But after the trio of knockouts in a row in the league, poker in five games given the return with Leipzig, coach Gian Piero Gasperini, more than physical condition, must regain the morale of the finished group under crampons. In six years of his management, never before such a negative balance sheet, aggravated by the average point over the 13 rounds of the second round: “The cuts made us better, this time we were less. We hope to return to being in the remaining six”, Gasp-Thought during the thematic meeting on Thursday evening.
