The Italian side head into the shortened knockout stage of this season's competition among the dark horses to lift the coveted European crown. Atalanta ended the 2019/20 Serie A season as the league's leading scorers having netted an incredible 98 goals in 38 matches. 
Le Dea have been equally impressive in the Champions League and booked their place in the last eight with a 8-4 aggregate thumping of Valencia. 
Top scorer Josip Ilicic looks set to miss the tie, but Colombian duo Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata have notched up 19 goals each and will provide more than adequate firepower in attack for one of Europe's most exciting teams.

In contrast, PSG are set to welcome back star forward Kylian Mbappe from injury in midweek as they aim to complete an unprecedented haul of four trophies this season. 
The French champions have already won Ligue 1, Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue this season, but will undoubtedly cherish success in the Champions League the most. 
PSG beat Borussia Dortmund 3-2 in the Round of 16 for a place in the quarter-finals.
