PSG won the Ligue 1 title for the seventh time in the last eight seasons after being awarded it following the early curtailment of the campaign, and bet365 make them 10/11(1.91) favourites to reach the semi-finals for the first time in 15 years.
The draw would see the tie go into extra time and potentially penalties, and that result is priced at 3/1(4.0) with the online bookmaker.
Atalanta’s top scorer Josip Ilicic is likely to miss out due to personal reasons, which will leave the scoring duties to Duvan Zupata and Luis Muriel.
Kylian Mbappe could feature after recovering quickly from an ankle injury that was expected to rule him out for this match, but Marco Verratti and Layvin Kurzawa are likely to miss out due to injury whilst Angel Di Maria is suspended.
The loss of Ilicic is a big blow to Atalanta but they will still back themselves to compete considering they scored an astonishing 98 goals in Serie A this term – the most by any team in a single Italian top-flight season since 1951-52.
It was a similar story for PSG who netted 75 times in just 27 Ligue 1 fixtures and were on their way to a third consecutive season of scoring over 100 goals in the league prior to the curtailment of it.
Those incredible scoring statistics also cross over to the Champions League, where only Bayern Munich have tallied more goals than PSG’s 20 strikes whilst Atalanta’s total of 16 places them fifth.
This fixture has plenty of potential to be an exciting one for fans and neutrals alike and, despite the lack of Ilicic and potentially Mbappe, the 6/5(2.20) quote on over 3.5 goals from bet365 looks excellent value for this Champions League quarter-final in Lisbon.
