Valencia: Domenech; Wass/Florenzi, Coquelin, Diakhaby, Gayà; Ferran Torres, Parejo, Carlos Soler, Cheryshev/Guedes; Rodrigo, Gameiro.
Atalanta: Gollini; Djimsiti, Caldara, Palomino; Hateboer, De Roon, Freuler, Gosens; Gomez; Ilicic, Pasalic/Zapata.
Team News & Match Tips – VAL vs ATN:
- Toloi is out injured for Atalanta.
- Cillessen, Piccini, Garay, Gabriel Paulista and Kangin Lee 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 hammered Valencia 4-1 in the first leg. Valencia need to win by a 3-0 scoreline in order to progress. A 4-1 win for Valencia sends the tie to extra time. A 5-2 sort of a scoreline will also send them through.
- Toloi’s absence will definitely weaken Atalanta’s defence. They will not change their style of play and I back them to score at least once tonight. The first couple of goals will be crucial in determining the outcome of this match.
- This match will be played in front of an empty stadium. Valencia derives a lot of its energy from the home crowd. No spectators in the stadium will severely impact their performance tonight. I am going for a high-scoring encounter which could go either way.
- My Prediction: Valencia 2-2 Atalanta
Valencia: Parejo, Rodrigo, Ferran Torres, Daniel Wass
Atalanta: Gomez, Ilicic, Zapata, Castagne, Gosens, Freuler
- Parejo/Papu Gomez
- Ferran Torres/Cheryshev
- Carlos Soler
Best Dream11 Combination 1 (Small League)(Updated):
- You may captain Alejandro Gomez, Rodrigo Moreno or Kevin Gameiro in place of Ilicic.
- You may pick Carlos Soler in place of Ferran Torres. Equally good picks.
- You may pick Hateboer in place of Gosens. Equally good picks.
