Probable line-ups: Atalanta-Valencia

Josip Ilicic and Alejandro Gomez look set to lead the line once again, when Atalanta continue their Champions League adventure against Valencia tonight.

The match starts at 20:00 GMT.

The doors will be closed for the public when La Dea enter the Mestalla for their historic match in the last 16 of the prestigious competition.

Atalanta start with a 4-1 lead from San Siro and without the injured Rafael Toloi, coach Gian Piero Gasperini will trust Mattia Caldara to continue what he started in Milan.

Mario Pasalic and Duvan Zapata are fighting for the third spot in a trio with Papu Gomez and Ilicic up front, but the success from the first leg could be the recipe also in Spain.

The man of the match from the first leg, Hans Hateboer, will be found at right and Robin Gosens should take place at left in Gasp’s 3-4-1-2.

Roma loanee Alessandro Florenzi will get a reunion with Italian football, as he is set to start at right-back for Los Che in a traditional 4-4-2 formation, whilst the former Inter midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia will be found in the middle of the park.

Rodrigo has been recovered and could help Valencia in the hunt for a historic comeback against an Orobici side that has been on a break from football since their 7-2 win against Lecce on March 1.

Valencia (probable):Cillessen; Florenzi, Coquelin, Diakhaby, Gayá; Ferran Torres, Kongogbia, Parejo, Soler; Rodrigo, Gameiro

Atalanta (probable):Gollini; Caldara, Palomino, Djimsiti; Hateboer, De Roon, Freuler, Gosens; Pasalic; Ilicic, Gomez

Referee:Hategan (Romania)
