Injured Gollini travels with Atalanta

Atalanta have made the journey to Portugal for the Champions League Final Eight tournament, as expected without Josip Ilicic, but injured Pierluigi Gollini has travelled anyway.

They face Paris Saint-Germain in the quarter-final on Wednesday at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT).

Coach Gian Piero Gasperini has called up 26 players who made the flight today, but this includes goalkeeper Gollini.

He is out for at least two months with a knee ligament injury, but a note from the club points out Gollini wanted to participate in the Champions League experience anyway.

He’s therefore in the squad, even if he cannot play in Lisbon, so Marco Sportiello will be in goal.

Ilicic is the only absentee, as he is still in Slovenia dealing with a personal matter.

Atalanta squad for Champions League: Raoul Bellanova, Mattia Caldara, Timothy Castagne, Ebrima Colley, Alessandro Cortinovis, Lennart Czyborra, Jacopo Da Riva, Marten de Roon, Berat Djimsiti, Remo Freuler, Ludovico Gelmi, Alejandro Gomez, Robin Gosens, Rodrigo Guth, Hans Hateboer, Ruslan Malinovskyi, Luis Muriel, Caleb Okoli, Jose Luis Palomino, Mario Pasalic, Roberto Piccoli, Francesco Rossi, Marco Sportiello, Bosko Sutalo, Rafael Toloi, Duvan Zapata
