Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta have been one of the most exciting sides in Europe this season. Gasperin’s side are in place to play in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, after scoring eight against La Liga side Valencia over two legs

Under Gasperini, Atalanta have largely set up in a 3-4-1-2 but their front three are often versatile forwards that can be deployed in a flat three but one of the main reasons Gasperini is enjoying his most successful spell as a manager is perhaps he’s got a bit of pragmatism about him now, often shown in his team selection.

Often Gasperini goes with his best front three, often flat with Papu Gómez and Josip Iličić off Zapata but against tougher opposition he distinctly goes with a 1-2, with an extra midfielder drafted in, usually Mario Pašalić for that extra protection offered by only leaving two up top for the counter rather than the three you’d see when deploying a 3-4-2-1.

32 year old Josip Iličić has been the keyman for Gasperini this season. The Slovenian has been directly involved in 20 Serie A goals this season. Duván Zapata goals were replaced by Papu Gómez & Josip Iličić when the Colombian went out injured earlier in the season. Gómez has chipped in with 10 Serie A goals and contributing to three Champions League goals.

In the final third, Gasperini’s men tend to attack in a lopsided 3-2-3-2 with Alejandro “Papu” Gomez in the hole as the side’s playmaker, Josip Illicic pulling into the right channel where he can operate as an inside forward, whilst Duvan Zapata uses his physicality and strength to lead the line as Atalanta’s target man where he looks to link Atalanta’s moves or finish them off.

How far will Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta go in the Champions League?

great video, you explain tactics and examplify them graphically really good. Just wish you could talk slower sometimes, and take more time to demonstrate the more complicated tactics

La Dea La Dea La Dea!! I have won thousands on the PTS in Atalanta games over the past 18 months they are incredible. In just a few of their results it paid for an expensive molar dental implant and then some!! Aggressive coach + aggressive hungry players = great punting!! Forget the low scores just wager on the freaky scores and they are due for a 4-2.

Also Zapata -prior to his 3-4 month injury recently – was THE central scorer last season not Ilicic. Zapata though lacking high speed, is very strong and has good ball control skills in the box which often leads to goals. The team attack East-West as much as North-South when around the net because the wing backs and defenders are athletic and fit enough to run up and shoot/head then sprint back on any resulting counter.

Correction Brad. Atalanta BC have been absolutely pulsating for the past two seasons. They are a powerhouse squad wherein 5-6 players can score at any time from any field position.
