He’s been continuously improving and working hard and the icing on the cake to the season was his call-up to EURO2020. Matteo Pessina returned to base to leave a mark in the 2020-2021 season: he played 40 matches in all competitions (28 in Serie A TIM, 7 in the UEFA Champions League, 5 in the Coppa Italia). He scored 4 goals and provided 2 assists. As for the League, he contributed to two 5-goal wins, having scored the second goal at home against Sassuolo (5-1) and Parma (5-2). But the most magical night for him to remember forever was the second leg of the Coppa Italia semifinal: his double was decisive for the qualification to the final that allowed Atalanta to win 3-1 against Napoli. A curious fact: he provided both his assists against Udinese, the former in the away match and the latter at home. So, here is the official League’s statistics of the Lega Serie A: 1.716 minutes played in total, 9,935 km run on average per match, 19 shots, 9 goalscoring chances, 6 key passes, 22 fouls suffered, 47 ball recoveries.
