Gomez: 'Atalanta really miss Ilicic'

Papu Gomez confirms his bet with Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto and hopes Atalanta can beat Inter to give Josip Ilicic ‘a little joy.’

The game kicks off at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT), follow all the action as it happens on the LIVEBLOG.

“I am happy with the way this season has gone so far,” the captain told DAZN.

Ilicic has reportedly returned to Slovenia to be with family, as he is going through a difficult time on a personal level and won’t take part in the Champions League Final Eight tournament.

“We really miss Ilicic as a person even more than a player. He’s one of the most experienced in the dressing room and a great friend. We hope to give him a little joy by taking second place.”

Gomez has also made a bet with Lazio’s Luis Alberto on who gets the most Serie A assists this season.

“We’re friends anyway and made this bet, so whoever wins will get the other to buy them dinner. I won’t deny, I’d like to win!”
