With Juventus being knocked out of the Champions League 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.
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 Caldara 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.
