THE TEAM NEWS

ATALANTA

  • Atalanta have not won in any of their last five matches in all competitions but they will take confidence from the 1-1 draw with Man City.
  • The point collected last time out was their first in this difficult Champions League campaign and they will want to build on that here.
  • Ilicic and Malinovskiy missed the weekend defeat to Juventus through suspension but the duo will both return to bolster the squad.

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Gollini; Rafael Toloi, Palomino, Djimsiti; Castagne, De Roon, Freuler, Gosens; Ilicic, Gomez; Muriel

Unavailable:

Doubtful: Zapata (Injured)

DINAMO ZAGREB

  • Dinamo Zagreb are coming off a top-of-the-table clash with Hadjuk Split at the weekend which they drew 1-1 to remain top of the league.
  • They are competing with Shakhtar Donetsk for second spot so they know this is a golden opportunity with the Ukrainian side facing Man City.
  • Ademi is a slight injury concern but he is expected to be passed fit as boss Nenad Bjelica can virtually name his strongest starting eleven.

Predicted line-up (5-3-2): Livakovic; Stojanovic, Theophile-Catherine, Dilaver, Peric, Leovac; Olmo, Ademi, Moro; Orsic, Petkovic

Unavailable: Majer (Injured), Kulenovic (Injured), Andric (Injured), Leskovic (Injured)

Doubtful: Ademi (Injured), Gojak (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Atalanta received a stark welcome in their first-ever Champions League game in the reverse fixture back in September as they lost 4-0 in Zagreb. They will be desperate to bounce back here and that should lead to an open match with the Italians favoured to edge what could be a shootout.
