Atalanta have enjoyed a very impressive 2023/24 Europa League campaign to this point. They dominated their group, which contained Sporting, SK Strum Graz and Rakow with relative ease, earning a bye to the last-16 where they met old opponents, Sporting, whom they beat 3-2 over two legs.

The Italians were then expected to exit the competition in the quarter-finals when they were drawn against then-favourites, Liverpool. However, Atalanta shocked the world by beating Jurgen Klopp’s men 3-0 at Anfield in the first leg to secure a place in the semi-final. The Nerazzurri enjoyed similar success in the last four, drawing 1-1 with Marseille in the first leg before winning the return fixture 3-0.
