The data on Atalanta-Roma
There's a curious given on Atalanta-Roma: it hasn't finished 0-0 for over 35 years. As Il Corriere della Sera says, on 30 September 1984 it was Tancredi who saved the result on Pacione and Stromberg. That day the twinning between the fans ended: the Bergamo players praised Liverpool (who had beaten Roma 4 months before in the Champions Cup final) and stole a banner, in the stands he ended in a fight. In the following 56 games in A, in Bergamo and at the Olimpico, 168 goals were scored, 3 on average, 95-73 for the Giallorossi.
