Marino: 'Atalanta dream in Europe'

Atalanta director Umberto Marino is enjoying the Europa League “dream for the club and the city” as they host Olympique Lyonnais.

It kicks off at 18.00 GMT, follow all the action as it happens on the LIVEBLOG.

This is a head-to-head for top spot in the group and Atalanta need only a point to win, so Gian Piero Gasperini has kept squad rotation to a minimum.

“It would be against Gasperini’s philosophy to step backwards. His way of interpreting football is to attack always, the lads follow him and we all share this idea,” Marino told Sky Sport Italia.

“It has been a dream so far for the club and the city, so we hope it can continue in February.”
