Atalanta currently sit 5th in the Serie A, with their latest victory against Napoli, Gaspermini’s men now look forward to play an injury plagued Zinedine Zidane side in the UCL round of 16 first leg tie.
With key-players like Karim Benzema, Sergio Ramos, Eden Hazard, Marcelo, Carvajal, Rodrygo and Valverde all out of the tie due to injury, Zidane’s side could look vulnerable especially without their sharp shooter Karim Benzema and Captain Sergio Ramos.
Gasperini’s men will look to take full advantage of Real’s injury crisis as they look forward to hosting the Champions League’s most successful side, Atalanta who have scored 11goals in their 4 previous domestic games do not look short of fire-power.
Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata have been key to their attacking success this campaign. With the look of things, we could be in for another shocking result in the Champions League. Fans earnestly await the tie that’ll kick off at 9:00pm UTC at the Gewiss stadium in Bergamo.
