Everton could hardly pass two rounds to enter the group, although opponents were rather weak – Hajduk and Ruzomberok. English clubs don’t usually take the Europe League seriously and Everton is not an exception. Ronald Kuman won’t use the first team in the match in Italy, as the team will have to play against ManCity in three days, moreover, there has just been a difficult match against Tottenham.
Atalanta will play with the first team and will take this match more seriously. The team doesn’t pretend on high positions in the championship, but it hasn’t played in Europe for a long time. Atalanta will be very motivated and will minimum not lose.
