Atalanta coach Gasperini: Victory at Liverpool great for confidence

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini says victory at Liverpool has given his players a much needed confidence boost.

La Dea were impressive for the 2-0 Champions League win.

“It was a magical evening for us," Gasperini told the club's official website. “Winning on that pitch was undoubtedly a great satisfaction.

“An injection of confidence and energy. This must be brough to the championship and the next games.

“The championship is balanced, and it will always be like this. We are talking about a complicated campaign with difficult matches and maybe some better ones.

“We have already taken note of this. We are not concerned about those who have different expectations.

“We have the Champions League in between and it will be like that. It's not always easy to play like that.

“For us, it will be a different season from the others. But let's be calm."
