Stefano Colantuono said Atalanta can go for Europe after a club record sixth Serie A win on the bounce.
The Orobici set the new run with their 2-0 victory away to Bologna this evening.
“It’s not easy for small-to-medium club like ours to win six in a row,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.
“Today’s performance was perfect, as we struck at the right moment despite suffering a little on set plays.”
Atalanta went from struggling against relegation to surging into seventh place, currently one point behind Parma.
“We must honour the jersey and continue like this, then Europe depends on what the other clubs do as well.
“We’ll give it our best, though if the others win then it won’t be easy.”
