Both the sides have never met each other before in an official competition before their Wednesday’s R-16 first-leg Champions League clash at Stadio di Bergamo.

  • Atalanta will be looking to pull off a Champions League upset when they take on Real Madrid in the sides’ Champions League R-16 clash on Wednesday
  • Gian Piero Gasperini’s side qualified for the Champions League for the first time last season before being knocked out by finalists PSG in the quarter finals
  • The Serie A outfit have returned stronger this campaign and memorably got the better of Liverpool at Anfield in the group stages

Atalanta will be looking to pull off a Champions League upset when they take on Real Madrid in the sides’ first-leg Champions League R-16 clash at Stadio di Bergamo on Wednesday.

Gian Piere Gasperini’s side qualified for the knockout stages after finishing below Liverpool, but ahead of Dutch giants Ajax, in the group stages. La Dea scored 10 goals during the six group games, the joint-most by any side in Group D, though they also let in 8 goals.

Zinedine Zidane’s men, however, had an uncharacteristic opening six games of the Champions League season. Shock defeats at the hands of Borussia Monchengladbach and Shakhtar Donetsk meant that only a victory on the final gameweek secured their promotion to the next round.

The home side will be without the services of right wing-back Hans Hateboer on Wednesday evening, though his deputy Joakim Maehle has recovered from the injury ahead of Madrid’s visit, as evident by him playing 90 minutes against Napoli at the weekend.

Real Madrid aren’t quite lucky when it comes to injury, though. Los Blancos will be without eight first-team players for their trip to Italy after Karim Benzema joined the likes of Sergio Ramos, Eden Hazard, Rodrygo, Marcelo, Eder Militao, Federico Valverde and Daniel Carjaval on the sidelines.
