Atalanta Bergamo can restart the Europa League at RB Leipzig in the quarter-final first leg of the Europa League at RB Leipzig.
The 31-year-old from Colombia, however, is only used as a joker after one and a half-month injury break. “It is very important to have him. He will come from the bench. It’s nice that he is ready again,” said coach Gian Piero Gasperini. With nine goals Zapata in the series A is the most accurate striker Bergamos. In Leipzig on Thursday (18:45 pm / RTL) in the attack probably initially started his compatriot Luis Muriel.
Gasperini warned, his team should not commit so light mistakes as on Sunday at the 1: 3 against the SSC Naples. “In the Europa League we were very concentrated very well and have not committed little mistakes. This will be important against Leipzig to have a chance. They are damn strong,” said the 64-year-old.
Outdoor defender Hans Hatboer confessed that Atalanta has lost something of his offensive force. “After Christmas, we did not hit so much and then get rarer,” said the Dutch. “We did not achieve many goals over the outer railways and even after corners. We will continue to try and hope that it gets better against Leipzig.”
