Valence seriously jeopardized its chances of qualifying by losing quite heavily on the lawn of Atalanta on the outward journey (4-1). Overwhelmed by the talent and offensive potential of its opponents, the team still had the good idea to reduce the mark after being led by 4 goals. During the group stage, Dani Parejo’s partners had rather surprised the observers by winning the head of group H, ahead of Chelsea, Ajax and Lille. But the current period is complicated for Valencia which has won only 1 of its last 7 games in all competitions. It was 10 days ago at home against Bétis Seville (2-1). Friday, the Valencians could not do better than a draw at Deportivo Alaves (1-1).
Atalanta is one of the great surprises of this 2019/2020 edition of the Champions League. Attractive in the game, the training based in Bergamo gave an account of its very good dispositions to go by easily taking the top, in front of its tifosi, on Valence (4-1). Present in group C, Papu Gomez’s partners started off badly (3 losses) before leveling up and finishing 2nd in the ranking, behind Manchester City but ahead of Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Zagreb. The Bergamesques have played only one match since the first leg, winning in a new goal match with promoted Lecce (2-7). This is the 5th consecutive victory in all competitions for Atalanta.
