Atalanta 4-1 Valencia - Wednesday 19th February, 2020 (1st Leg)

Recommended Posts

I would LOVE to see Atalanta win. With them being inferior to most top clubs in terms of finances and even squad, they really push above their weight and hopefully it continues.

With all due respect to both sides, I think that this is probably the weakest tie of the round. For me, Atalanta are a more exciting side than Valencia, their attacking football and passing play is enjoyable to watch. But I think that Valencia are the better side overall and I think that the Spaniards will probably be the ones that reach the quarter finals. 

It's a close call, but I just think that Valencia are stronger defensively and they have forwards like Maxi Gomez, Rodrigo, Gamiero and Guedes who I can see really punishing Atalanta at some point.

I love these kind of ties that involve two lower ranked teams cause they usually turn out to be a great contest even if quality is not as you see in a big teams tie

Reckon this could be high-scoring.

Both like to attack and Atalanta's home form, albeit with this game at San Siro, is quite strong too. Fancy Valencia to get a couple of away goals.

Didn't realise they've been playing their home European fixtures away from home for the past few seasons because their ground isn't up to UEFA standards (it is now but they chose to play elsewhere whilst their stadium is being renovated)

I think they're playing their CL home matches at San Siro.

I think it'd be cool to have a smaller Italian club make a splash in the CL this season.

I also think Atalanta were my adopted club once in Cannabis's adopt a club thing.

They are in the San Siro. 

But I hope Atalanta win. They are a fun team to watch and I have no real love for Valencia.

Pasalic had to score!! Superb save one-on-one though from Domenech though.

How come they are in the San Siro? I thought only CONMEBOL did this "not playing at home due to requisites" shite xD

How come you ask questions that have been answered 100 times on here? 

Atalanta have been upgrading their stadium, so for their European campaign, they are playing at the San Siro.

Atalanta's stadium not fit enough for European football and was still undergoing refurbishment at start of this season. It's ready now but think they had to continue in San Siro.

Valencia hit the post!

Bit of confusion reigns in the Atalanta box shortly after. Keeper bit hesitant.

Papu Gomez spurning a decent chance. Should be more goals in this!
