New, comments

Will the real Super Mario please stand up?

Atalanta have done the improbable by qualifying for the knockout rounds of the UEFA Champions League. They looked down and out after their first three games, all three losses, but the 7 points they collected in the remaining three games since were enough to attain the second position in the group. Chelsea loanee Mario Pasalic has been pivotal for them this campaign, including in today’s 3-0 must-win over Shakhtar Donetsk, wherein he scored the second goal that sealed the win.
