With Juventus being knocked out of the by Porto, Italy lost a number of its representatives. Thanks to Paris Saint-Germain’s win over Barcelona however, the Italian flag is still flying high.

The disappointing two-legged defeat for Andrea Pirlo’s side meant the likes of Federico , and Federico Bernadeschi will all play no further part in the tournament.

PSG on the other hand have a strong Italian contingent in their ranks, meaning Alessandro , Moise Kean and will all be representing Italy in the quarter-finals.

Jorginho and Emerson Palmeiri could be joining them if Chelsea make it past Atletico Madrid, but based on the 4-1 home defeat Lazio suffered against Bayern, it looks very unlikely any if their Italians will be progressing.

It would take a big performance but Atalanta could still progress, meaning Italians such as Marco Sportiello, Matteo Pessina, and Mattia will continue to be involved. They’ll need to bounce back from the 1-0 defeat they suffered at the Gewiss Stadium in the first leg.
