Atalanta team news
Heading into this Europa League quarter-final second leg hosts Atalanta are missing Bryan Cabezas and Josip Ilicic with the former sidelined with injury. Gian Piero Gasperini is expected to make few changes from last time out which means Luis Muriel, who netted in the opening leg, starts again. He’s been directly involved in eight goals in seven starts in the Europa League across spells with Sevilla and Atalanta (five goals and three assists). Among players to play at least 500 minutes in the competition, only Claudio Pizarro (one every 58 minutes) has provided a goal or assist more frequently than Muriel (one every 63 mins).
Atalanta predicted XI: Musso; De Roon, Demiral, Palomino; Hateboer, Koopmeiners, Freuler, Zappacosta; Malinovskyi, Pasalic; Muriel.
RB Leipzig team news
Enroute to Atalanta this week only Amadou Haidara, who’s recovering from a knee injury, is missing for the visitors.

Domenico Tedesco should continue with André Silva and Christopher Nkunku uptop.
