There will be a new confrontation between Stefano Pioli and Gian Piero Gasperini tonight during the game between AC Milan and Atalanta. Read more below for Pioli vs Gasperini recent updates.
Defender Pioli vs Gasperini Midfielder
In La Gazzetta dello Sport, it is mentioned that on 30 October 1988 when Pioli and Gasperini faced each other for the first time on the pitch as players for the first time, with the former playing at Verona while the latter playing at Pescara, the duel between Pioli and Gasperini had begun thirty-five years ago. During that period, Gasperini was a midfielder with a lot of experience, while Pioli was a young defender.
In the end, the game ended up being a 0-0 draw with Pescara having two players with the same shirt number on the field for Pescara, Marchegiani and Camplone. A notable incident took place after three minutes of play when referee Pezzella stopped the match due to Pescara having two players with the same shirt number. In the return match, the score remained at 0-0 as well.
Back in 2004
As players, they only met twice while as coaches, the first meeting took place on 25 September 2004 when Modena beat Crotone 1-0 thanks to an own-goal by Tamburini that gave Gasperini the win in a thrilling match. As a result, it would be a few years until Pioli’s Chievo and Gasp’s Genoa would square off in Serie A, which would happen on the 12 September 2010 when Pioli’s Chievo won 3-1 at Gasp’s Genoa.
It has been an incredible journey with great matches, outbursts, compliments, and deluges of goals over the years. Pioli and Inter won 7-1 back in 2017 and Atalanta scored an infamous 5-0 against Milan back in December 2019. It is still the case today that both teams compete for the top position in the league between the two.
How many times Poli faced duele?
Pioli has faced Gasperini the most times in his coaching career, and he has won 10 games, drawn six matches, and lost seven games to him. It is with great pleasure that I present to you an addition to the diary tonight.
