ROMA – The delayed start, the last round of tampons, then the green light with no other positivity in the team group. It is an Atalanta with many absences that showed up in the capital to challenge Lazio in the big match on Saturday night. Reworked training for Gasperini. Absent in nine: Hateboer, De Roon, Koopmeiners, Pasalic, Gosens, Malinovskyi, Ilicic, Zapata, Muriel. Important players, very titular, who are not available. The safe absentees on the eve, regardless of Covid, were Zapata and Gosens, both struggling with their respective muscle injuries. They will come back after the break. For others there is the Coronavirus spectrum. The privacy rule is in force, Gasperini expects to find them as soon as possible.
