On Wednesday evening Italian top-flight side Atalanta welcome Spanish Valencia, in Champions League last 16 round. Odds on a home win are dropping for days, for a great reason. Namely, Spaniards arrive in Bergamo without even eight players, including five regulars. Among them are three defenders, suspended Gabriel Paulista (22 La Liga appearances this term, 1 goal) and injured Ezequiel Garay (17) and a newcomer from Roma Alessandro Florenzi (2). Also lack regular midfielder Francis Coquelin (18) and forward Rodrigo Moreno (20, 2 goals). Moreover, backup players Cristiano Piccini (2), Lee Kang-In (10, 1 goal) and Manu Vallejo (8, 1 goal) are also out of action.
