Tactical analysis Genoa Atalanta 1-2 Serie A

Genoa CFC – Atalanta Bergamo: Late Zapata Screamer Hands Atalanta Deserved Bounce-Back Victory (1-2)

Aurelio Andreazzoli’s promising all-out pressing plan was quickly subsided by the heat and Atalanta’s tiring midfield rotations. Atalanta took control of the match, yet a tactical switch finally presented Genoa with a chance to claw back some salvation, as a chaotic period of stoppage time ensued…

Tactical analysis and match report by Peter M

Genoa, sitting pretty in fifth since turning out a 2-1 victory over Fiorentina at their home ground a fortnight ago, welcomed the arrival of Gian Piero Gasperini’s Champions League competitors. Clearly confident in his side’s ability, Andreazzoli named a completely unchanged eleven from tip to toe, keeping to the same 3-5-2 system in place, too.

Ten goals, featuring two 3-2 score lines (swinging either way), have made for a lively start to the 2019/20 campaign for Gasperini’s men. As ever, the head coach set out his back three setup with a slight alteration in the front three, which shifted to a flat front three, here. Elsewhere, there was one change in the form of Remo Freuler coming in to take the place of Marten de Roon, presumably for rotational purposes.

His main club is Arsenal but he’s also followed Real Betis quite heavily since Quique Setién took over last year.
