Atalanta wins a sweaty draw on the field of Young Boys at the end of a daring match and now awaits Villarreal on the last day of the Champions League to play the last good card to qualify. The only useful result: victory. Atalanta starts strong: at 10 ‘Zapata receives the ball in the area from Malinovskiy, tows from the left and then on the fly, right in turn, Faivre hole. The advantage does not satisfy the Bergamo players: on the 20th minute another dangerous corner from Malinovskiy, Palomino hits with his head but the ball is high. The Swiss, intimidated by the Nerazzurri’s rocket start, take 25 minutes to create something good: Elia looks for the bottom, Maehle is good and closes in the corner. Atalanta insists and within two minutes, between 32 ‘and 34’, two good opportunities are created with Pasalic.
Failure to double is punctually punished in the 39th minute: Aebischer tense angle on the near post, Siebatcheu hits with his head, ball first on the crossbar, then on the post and Musso is beaten. It starts again and Atalanta, angrily, immediately regains the advantage: at 51 ‘Palomino, on the development of a corner kick, places the ball at the intersection of the goalposts. Once again, however, Atalanta have the demerit of not closing the match. At 80 ‘throw-in, the ball goes to Sierro who strikes Musso from a few steps away. They spend only four minutes and the Young Boys even found the goal of the advantage: the full-back Hefti from the edge lets off a powerful left that slips into the intersection. It seems like a definitive sentence but Atalanta, who at this moment has even slipped to the last place in the standings, have the strength to react: in the 88th minute Muriel equalized with a free-kick that slipped into the lower corner. –
