Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini has revealed he regrets conceding a late goal against Manchester United on Tuesday night.

With the scores 2-1, Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo scored a late equaliser and his second of the night to secure a 2-2 draw for Manchester United against Atalanta.

“It was a fantastic evening, with a lot of fans against a big team and we had a great match,” Gasperini said after the game.

“Of course, we could have won so we are 80 per cent happy and 20 per cent regret having conceded in injury time.

“It would have given us a boost towards the next round, but we are still fully in the running.

“Luckily, qualification is still in our hands even if we have two very difficult matches ahead with Young Boys and Villarreal.”
