Atalanta rely on Duvan Zapata and Papu Gomez for tonight’s Europa League qualifier with Hapoel Haifa, having won the first leg 4-1.

It kicks off at Sassuolo’s Mapei Stadium in Reggio-Emilia at 19.00 UK time (18.00 GMT), as the Stadio Azzurri d’Italia in Bergamo still isn’t up to UEFA code.

The Orobici also played their Europa League home fixtures here last season.

Despite Coach Gian Piero Gasperini’s complaints at a lack of transfer activity this summer, Atalanta are on the verge of Europa League group stage qualification.

They won the first leg 4-1 in Israel and it will take a heavy home defeat for Hapoel Haifa to turn this around.

Josip Ilicic is still out of action with an on-going infection, while Musa Barrow is rested in favour of Mario Pasalic with Duvan Zapata and Gomez.

Atalanta: Gollini; Djimsiti, Mancini, Masiello; Castagne, Pessina, Freuler, Reca; Pasalic, Zapata, Gomez

Atalanta bench: Berisha, Valzania, Palomino, Cornelius, De Roon, Hateboer, Barrow

Hapoel Haifa: Setkus; Malul, Kapiloto, Tamas, Dilmoni; Buzaglo, Sjostedt, Mitrevski; Hadida, Papazoglou, Ginsari

Hapoel Haifa bench: Kadoch, Arael, Plakushchenko, Zamir, Vermouth, Misphati, Qashoa
