Atalanta coach Gasperini hails 6-2 rout of Brescia: That's a lot of goals!

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini was delighted with their 6-2 rout of Brescia.

Mario Pasalic struck a hat-trick, as goals from Marten de Roon, Ruslan Malinovskyi and Duvan Zapata helped La Dea to victory.

“That's nice, isn't it? That's a lot," Gasperini told Sky Sport Italia.

“We scored a lot last season too, but we out-did ourselves this time and they are quality goals, too. We've had some goalfests this year, but it's not to humiliate the opponent, it's practising the moves, the triangles around the pitch, and those lead to goals.

“We never started the season to play in such elevated positions, but it's the second year in a row we're finding ourselves in the top four. Playing in the Europa League and then the Champions League helped us to mature and get accustomed to a different level.

“We are preparing for Paris Saint-Germain, but also want to fight it out to the end in Serie A. I think the best way to be ready for August 12 is to keep playing Serie A games with the right mentality, intensity and focus.

“We're in the Champions League for next term, second or third place aren't the main objective, but we can still try while we're here."
