What is the team news?

Former Man City defender Eliaquim Mangala is struggling with a thigh problem and remains a big doubt.

Maxi Gomez has a broken foot and won’t be back in action until April at the earliest.

Both Manu Vallejo and Cristiano Piccini are back in training but this one might come too early.

Meanwhile for the visitors, Duvan Zapata looks set to appear in the starting XI.

Also on the comeback trail from injury is Rafael Toloi, with the Brazilian suffering from a muscular problem.

Stat attack!

  • Atalanta progressed to the knockout stages, having only picked up seven points – the second lowest in a group stage and still go through
  • Prior to this season, Atalanta had only ever played in Europe on six occasions and never in the Champions League before
  • Valencia have only reached the Champions League quarter finals on two occasions since making back-to-back finals in 2000 and 2001

What are the odds?

Unsurprisingly, Atalanta are just 1/16 to progress to the quarter finals, while Valencia are a whopping 7/1.

But after also banging goals in for fun in Serie A – including netting SEVEN goals three times – the Italian side are 7/1 to score more than three goals once again.

Yet, the unthinkable cannot be ruled out, with Valencia 40/1 to BEAT Atalanta 4-1 and send the game to extra time.
