PSG have been the pride of France for quite sometime now. They have taken the French Ligue 1 by storm, winning league titles on the trot. In fact, it appears Les Parisiens have turned the title to their birthright, strolling to success every single season.

Streets ahead of every other French team, it will take something really special from any side to knock PSG off their perch. In recent time, the likes of Lyon and Lille have pressed really hard to usurp the Red and Blues but as expected, failed in their tracks. 

Meanwhile, Atalanta ended their goal-laden league campaign with a third-place finish, behind only Juventus and Inter Milan.

Atalanta vs PSG Team News

So far, it has been an outstanding campaign for Paris Saint-Germain. Sweeping through the French Ligue 1, they successfully defended their title and that, in style. With the coronavirus outbreak crippling sporting activities across the continent, the French league was brought to a halt in March.

Following deliberations between the French government and FFF, a unanimous decision was reached to terminate the 2019/2020 season. At the time, PSG were on top of the standings, a whopping 12 points clear of second-placed Marseille. 

In the light of this, Les Parisiens were handed the league title with only 27 games played. Having clinched the league title, PSG went on to secure the Coupe de France trophy after defeating Saint-Etienne with the narrowest of margins via a 1-0 win.

Following the latest success, PSG went on to triumph in the Coupe de la Ligue, defeating Lyon on penalties in the final to salvage the domestic treble. Thomas Tuchel has been lauded for his exploits with the club this season. Truly, his impact at the Paris club has been immense.

Having been turning heads in their domestic league, PSG have been equally excellent in the Champions League. Handed a pretty difficult group alongside Real Madrid and Galatasaray, the Red and Blues easily strolled to the top of the standings with 16 points from six games.

Also, they eliminated German juggernauts Borussia Dortmund from the CL in the Round-of-16 phases to set up a mouth-watering quarterfinal clash with Atalanta this week – the Italian side trouncing Valencia 8-4 across two legs, to advance to this stage of the competition.

Atalanta have been the surprise packages of the Serie A. They finished third on the log, just two points adrift the league summit. Also, La Dea have been scoring for fun this term with a whopping 98 league goals to their name – a goalscoring record bettered only by Man City and Bayern Munich.

Even though goals have been very easy to come by for the Goddess, Gasperini will be spurring his boys on to a strong defensive display to frustrate a properly armed PSG attacking frontline. Given both sides are experts at hitting the target, goals should be aplenty in this fixture.

This is arguably the biggest Champions League quarterfinal game of the week. Two goal-friendly teams taking on each other and we can only think of one thing – GOALS. However, the difference here could come down to defensive strengths.
