Argentina drop Dybala and Icardi

Argentina again seem set to drop Paulo Dybala and Mauro Icardi, but start Milan midfielder Lucas Biglia against Ecuador.

This is going to be an absolutely decisive match, because the Seleccion risk missing out on the World Cup for the first time since 1970.

Hiring Jorge Sampaoli has so far failed to give them the necessary boost, as after a 0-0 draw with Peru, they are only sixth in the South American qualifying table.

A victory in Ecuador would secure qualification, but it’s a very tough test and played at altitude.

Papu: My future? Who knows…

Papu Gomez has refused to rule out leaving Atalanta next summer after revealing “Milan wanted me” and that “I was a step away from Lazio.”

Gomez was heavily linked with a move away from Atalanta over the summer after he played a starring role for Atalanta last season, the Orobici having achieved their best-ever finish of fourth in Serie A.

The Argentina attacker ultimately stayed put, but despite committing himself to the Dea for the rest of the campaign, he hinted at a possible departure next year.

Argentina snub Higuain, call Papu

Gonzalo Higuain has again been left out of the Argentina squad, but Paulo Dybala, Papu Gomez and Mauro Icardi make it.

The South Americans will face Peru in a crunch match for 2018 World Cup qualifying, but Coach Jorge Sampaoli has once more snubbed Pipita.

The Juventus striker was dropped for two games by Max Allegri before breaking his goal drought, so this week scored against both Olympiakos and Atalanta.

Despite a fractured rib for Sergio Aguero ruling out the Manchester City striker, there is still no room for Higuain.

Gomez: 'Lichtsteiner red card'

Papu Gomez was “proud” of Atalanta for holding Juventus 2-2, but wanted Stephan Lichtsteiner sent off. “He smashed me in the face!”

The Orobici fought back from 2-0 down in Bergamo and saw Etrit Berisha save a late Paulo Dybala penalty.

“I think there are few teams able to cause Juventus this much trouble and we are among them,” Papu told Mediaset Premium.

Gomez extra motivated for Juve

Papu Gomez warns Atalanta are particularly motivated against Juventus tonight and “the final minutes could be decisive.”

It kicks off at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT), follow the build-up and action from this game and Milan-Roma on the LIVEBLOG.

“We know that Atalanta haven’t beaten Juve for many years and that is an extra motivation to do well,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

Lyon know Atalanta now

Olympique Lyonnais had never heard of Papu Gomez or Atalanta, but the complacent French giants were given a crash course, writes Billy Wilkinson.

A draw at Stade de Lyon has put Atalanta in a position they most likely didn’t think they’d be in – they’re top of their Europa League group after two games. The Bergamo based club were dealt a ‘group of death’ containing Lyon, Everton and Cypriot side Apollon Limassol. However, according to FiveThirtyEight, Atalanta have a 95% chance to advance to the knockout rounds.

Genesio: 'Naive Lyon error'

Lyon Coach Bruno Genesio admits they made “a really naïve mistake” on the Papu Gomez goal, as Atalanta grabbed a 1-1 draw.

Bertrand Traore opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time, on the rebound from yet another Etrit Berisha save, but Gomez blasted his touched-on free kick through the wall.

“We had a good game, but there are some regrets,” said Genesio in his Press conference.

Gomez: 'Lyon know me now'

Papu Gomez trusts “a few more will know who I am” after his spectacular goal in Atalanta’s 1-1 draw at Olympique Lyonnais.

The Argentine already thumped in a screamer to beat Everton 3-0, but made his mark with the equaliser in France after Lyon star Nabil Fekir said he’d never heard of him.
