It means four of Europe’s top-five leagues are committed to finishing the coronavirus-disrupted campaign, with only Ligue 1 having declared the season over.
Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio, commonly known as just Atalanta, is an Italian football club based in Bergamo, Lombardy. The club currently plays in Serie A, having gained the promotion from Serie B in 2010–11.
They are nicknamed the Nerazzurri and the Orobici. Atalanta play in blue-and-black vertically striped shirts, black shorts and black socks. The club stadium is the 26,638 seater Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.
Atalanta is sometimes called Regina delle provinciali (queen of the provincial clubs) to mark the fact that the club is historically one of the most consistent among the non-metropolitan ones, having played 53 times in Serie A (11th overall for number of participations in the top division), 28 times in Serie B and only once in Serie C.
Italian league action resumed yesterday after a short break with a couple of interesting results. Inter Milan began the year with a resounding 5-0 hammering of Parma at the San Siro while high flyers Lazio were thrashed 4-0 by Siena.
In what he termed as his best display ever with the club, a visibly happy Claudio Ranieri praised his side for their 5 star performance. The win moves Inter up to 5th in the Serie A standings just a point behind Lazio.
Speaking after the match, Ranieri was quoted as saying that their result could be the one that starts their turn around.
