Awful performance last night against Atalanta.
I think you are underestimating Atalanta, they are the in-form team in Serie A along with Lazio scoring 10 goals in the last 2 matches and conceding none. As for Conte's tactics, with a half fit Sensi and a suspended Barella I find it difficult to dominate any midfield, let alone Atalanta's dynamic one. The only baffling thing about Conte is always insisting on subbing out Lautaro (for Politano) and leaving Lukaku on the pitch, thus giving a helping hand to the opponent. Maybe it is because Lautaro covers much more space during the match and ends up getting tired towards the end.Not nice to see Conte play on the break in San Siro against a team that has about 10% of the budget of Inter.
This is the type of game Juventus win in their sleep.
The game would have certainly been different with Skriniar and Barella but still no excuse.
Gagliardini was useless as always.
Brozo wasn't great.
The first half wasn't too bad and looked like a classic Conte setup. There were 3 big chances (Lautaro x2 and Lukaku hit the post) . Atalanta only really had one chance in the first 45. It looked like being a laboured but effective performance.
But this ridiculous attempt at Catenaccio in the 2nd half was just stupid and almost backfired completely.
Well, it did backfire.
This midfield signing can't wait any longer. Vidal/Eriksen/Kessie/Nandez needs to come NOW.
4 points from Napoli away and Atalanta at home is not a bad return, but this game was completely winnable with a different tactical approach. Atalanta are not that good on the road this season. THey lost away to frickin Bologna 4 weeks ago. C'mon....
