Atalanta coach Gasperini delighted for Gomez after Lyon

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini was delighted with their 1-1 draw against Europa League opponents Lyon.

Papu Gomez hit a spectacular goal for Atalanta on the night.

“It's a great result for us in a very tough game, one of the most important sides in the competition, but over the course of the game we managed to resist their attacks well," Gasperini told Sky Sport Italia.

“It's a tough match, but one that will teach us lessons going forward. The lads always believed and when the tempo dropped a little, we were able to make ourselves dangerous too.

“In some moments, they really pegged us back and we didn't recover the ball as well as we usually do, but getting a point here is a real boost."

Gomez scored a ferocious free kick and pointed to the back of his jersey, as in yesterday's Press conference Nabil Fekir confessed he'd never heard of the Argentine.

“I think they know Papu Gomez now! He was extraordinary tonight and I am happy for him, as in such a tough evening, we scored a great goal."
