Team News & Match Tips – ATN vs VAL:
- No major injury absentees for Atalanta.
- Cillessen, Piccini, Florenzi, Garay, Gabriel Paulista, Coquelin, Kangin Lee and Rodrigo are all unavailable for Valencia.
- My Verdict: Atalanta have scored more goals in the league this season than any other team in Serie A. They are also the third highest goal-scoring team in Europe this season! Atalanta have some very dangerous players in their side that can damage a weak Valencia defence tonight. They are a very, very attacking side and they have a lot of goal scoring options in their side.
- This will be a tough match for Valencia. Firstly because they have never won at the San Siro stadium. Secondly, they are currently suffering defensive as well as offensive injuries heading into this match.
- This is the first knockout UCL match in Atalanta’s history. They will want to mark it with a special performance.
- The two issues with Atalanta are as follows: 1) They will play this match at the San Siro stadium as their own stadium has not been given clearance by UEFA. So the atmosphere will be slightly flat. 2) They do not have European knockout experience. They can be leaky at the back and a Valencia away goal can hurt their chances to progress.
- An Atalanta win looks the more likely result. But one can never underestimate this seasoned Valencia side.
- My Prediction: Atalanta 2-1 Valencia.
Atalanta: Gomez, Ilicic, Zapata, Castagne, Gosens, Freuler
Valencia: Parejo, Rodrigo, Ferran Torres, Daniel Wass
- Zapata/Papu Gomez
- Maxi Gomez
- Dani Parejo/Ferran Torres
- Carlos Soler/Daniel Wass
Best Dream11 Combination 1 (Small League)(Updated):
- You may captain Alejandro Gomez or Maxi Gomez in place of Ilicic.
- You may pick Carlos Soler in place of Ferran Torres. Equally good picks.
