Atalanta defeated the opponent. It was Milan’s second defeat in Serie A this season. AC Milan still retained the lead.
In the 19th round of the Italian Serie A, the leader of the current Serie A draw hosted Atalanta. Milan, coached by Stefano Pioli, could not do anything against the visiting team and conceded three goals in their own goal.
Despite this defeat, “Rossoneri” still retains the first place. It is noteworthy that the second-placed Inter had a goalless draw with Udinese and could not equalize with their compatriot.
FOOTBALL-ITALIA has released a statement from the Black and Reds coach, saying that the defeat to Juventus and Atalanta is not a shame for them at all, because they are top-level teams and now the main thing is for his players to move on to the next matches.
‘Failure with Juventus and Atalanta is not shameful. However, they are top-tier teams. However, it is important that we still maintain the first place, which says a lot.’
‘We started the game well. We spent time in the attack, but then the situation changed. The second goal broke the team psychologically, and the picture of the game changed completely. We need to protect ourselves better, and I’m sorry we could not do that.’
‘Serie A is a very competitive league, and every point is important. Now we need to concentrate fully on the next matches and quickly forget the lost match.’
