Gian Piero Gasperini looked ahead at Atalanta's debut in the Champions League against Dinamo Zagreb.

“For the first time in its history, Atalanta are taking part in this tournament. We are happy to be here and are curious to see what the first impact is with the Champions League. We know it’s a superior level, but at the same time feel confident and eager to see what we can do. Our opponents in the group all won their domestic titles in Croatia, Ukraine and England, so they all deserve to be here. Perhaps we’ve got a smaller cachet and fanbase compared to the others, and certainly fewer resources, but that just means we deserved it all the more," said Gasperini.

Atalanta will play their home matches throughout the competition at San Siro.
