After a thrilling match at the Signal Iduna Park, which ended 3-2 in favor of Borussia Dortmund, Atalanta will get their chance for vengeance in Bergamo. The Italian side despite being an outsider has proved to be a tough opponent, especially in the final third, as they’ve caused all sorts of trouble for the shaky Dortmund defense. Both teams have had a rough weekend; the Black and Yellows have somehow managed to secure three points against Borussia Monchengladbach that missed a couple of sitters to equalize the match after a marvelous goal scored by Marco Reus, while Atalanta struggled against Fiorentina in a 1-1 draw at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia. However, this is a unique opportunity for the Goddess to prove their worth in Europe, and they are desperate to get the most out of it.
Gian Piero Gasperini is hoping that Andreas Cornelius could recover from injury and join Andrea Petagna in the heart of Atalanta’s attack. On the other hand, Luca Rizzo who suffered a patella fracture will most likely miss the game.
Peter Stoger has been handed a massive boost ahead of the second leg as Reus returned to full fitness. Dortmund’s injury list includes Andriy Yarmolenko, Maximilian Philipp, Shinji Kagawa, Marcel Schmelzer, Raphael Guerreiro, Erik Durm, Sebastian Rode, and Jadon Sancho, which makes it difficult for the German coach to form a desirable starting eleven.
