Watch all the action live as Atalanta take on Paris Saint-Germain in the sudden-death Champions League first quarter-final.

Gian Piero Gasperini’s side finished third in Serie A, just five points behind champions Juventus and have won nine of their 13 games since resuming football.

PSG have won their third consecutive Ligue 1 title after the premature end of the French season, but Kylian Mbappe will only be able to start on the bench due to an injury sustained in the Coupe de France final. Follow all the action live:


SUBS

80 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

Last ten minutes, what is left at PSG? A few changes first and Keylor is leaving now. Neymar passes three challenges on the left, but then passes the ball. Another shot from Mbappe on the turn is again easy to save for the keeper.

PSG submarines: Sergio Rico for Navas, Choupo-Moting for Icardi

76 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

Mbappe leads from the left, leaves his marker for dead and strikes with a low blow – saved by Sportiello’s feet.

Neymar tries to cut a cross from the left, but Atalanta has numbers now. Everyone’s back for now and they still can’t stop Neymar’s next dribble – but his shot is in the ground and saved again.

SUBS

72 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

Strange here – Keylor Navas seems to have pulled his hamstrings. I don’t know when the last time he touched the ball, but he’s down and receiving treatment and a change seems necessary… although he has now signaled that he will try to continue. Submarines on both sides anyway.

Under ATA: Muriel for Pasalic

PSG submarines: Paredes and Draxler for Gueye and Herrera

YELLOW CARD

68 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

Mbappe starts to worry Atalanta, who is now seated with five. Toloi runs an arm across the ball forward’s face as Mbappe tries to run and it’s another yellow card.

Zapata chases a ball down the left channel, but Thiago Silva beats him and PSG are back on the ball – looks like it will be mostly an attack on defense for a while.

64 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

Atalanta is a quarter of the last four game. Mbappe’s arrival, however, provided a spark for PSG, already driving twice on the left channel.

SUBS

60 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

We’re in the last half hour and it’s officially Mbappe’s time, according to Tuchel’s press conference. PSG really need him to make an impact when called on – but it’s Atalanta with the first subs.

ATA submarines: Malinovskyi and Palomino for Gomez and Djimsiti.

Oh, and here’s the main man:

Under-PSG: Mbappe for Sarabia, who was anonymous.

YELLOW CARD

58 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

Stress levels should start to rise. Ander Herrera crosses Gomez’s back with no chance of winning the ball. Easy yellow card.

From the free kick he waves to Djimsiti at the far post – but he cuts his half volley! Great luck.

YELLOW CARD

54 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

Duvan Zapata also in the book. He makes a mistake on an aerial challenge, then complains a little too loudly. Moments later Juan Bernat crosses Pasalic’s back and he’s carded as well.

Neymar sets off on a great race after two challenges and slips a pass through the defensive line… and no one is running to hang on to it. Neymar annoyed.

YELLOW CARD

50 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

De Roon follows two of his teammates in the book for fending off Neymar who was on the rise.

48 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

Juan Bernat trying to advance early – PSG have yet to have their full-backs to good use and with the lack of creativity in midfield they definitely need more width.

START

Second half in progress!

Another match, another goal for Atalanta’s attack …

YELLOW CARD

A quick note that Freuler was booked for Atalanta just at halftime.

MI-TEMPS

Half time

Atalanta 1-0 PSG

Chances at both ends and a dud or two that could have been better – but Pasalic has the difference between the teams at the break. Atalanta 45 minutes from the semi-finals of the Champions League.

44 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

Excellent free kick this time from Neymar, but Djimsiti does well to beat Marquinhos with the ball and to push back with a header.

One more minute

42 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

Another superb miss from Neymar. Hateboer plays a back pass from miles away, Sportiello is out of his line, Neymar runs to intercept, takes a touch and shoots with his left foot – but it’s high, wide from the near post and absolutely nowhere near the target. A wild effort.

40 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

Frustrating first half for Paris Saint-Germain. It’s really Neymar who does the creative work, the carrying and the shooting – the rest has to step up.

This midfielder is not, shall we say, designed to provide consistent serve in the final third – Verratti is a big dud tonight.

YELLOW CARD

36 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

Neymar shoots a free kick that is on target, but it’s easy for Sportiello to tap and grab.

Yellow card now for Djimsiti for a late tackle on Icardi.

32 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

It is the Serie A team that seems the most dangerous at the moment. On both flanks, they are overloaded to make their way around the PSG midfielder. Sarabia is now wasting a chance for PSG to attack, with his cut-back easily intercepted.

28 ‘- Atalanta 1-0 PSG

Neymar immediately tries to bring PSG back to an even level – but after putting the nutmeg on Pasalic and sprinting forward, his weak training only flashes a meter or so.
