Roma v Milan and Atalanta v Liverpool in Europa League

Serie A will have at least one representative in the Europa League semifinals, as Roma and Milan will face each other in the Round of Eight, while Atalanta have been paired up with Liverpool. The three Italian clubs aren’t on the same side of the bracket.

It’ll be the first time the Rossoneri and the Giallorossi meet on the continental stage. The former prevailed in both clashes this campaign, 1-2 at the Olimpico and 3-1 at home, which was the final match with José Mourinho at the helm.

Atalanta tangled with Liverpool in the group stage of the 2020/21 Champions League, losing 0-5 at home and winning 2-0 at Anfield. The next Europa League fixtures will take place between April 11th and April 18th.

La Dea’s CEO Luca Percassi commented on the tough draw to Sky.

“We weren’t lucky and will face the strongest opponents. However, at the same time, it’ll be a pleasure for Bergamo and our fans to host one of the best clubs in the world. We are very proud. Our supporters couldn’t attend the previous clashes due to COVID.”

“Liverpool have done extraordinary things with Jurgen Klopp. They have already won everything and can still do it. When you meet with these realities, you realize how much you have to learn. They have great talents on the pitch. On the other hand, it had never happened in the history of Atalanta to compete on all three fronts this late in the season.”
