Valencia-Atalanta will be played behind closed doors tonight

champions

The Champions League resumes tonight and Valencia Atalanta will be played but behind closed doors, with the stadium empty. Unusual training this morning, in which the players greeted each other by touching their elbows. From the point of view of the outcome, this is the most interesting game because Atalanta this year not only plays the champions league but could even reach the quarterfinals.

The challenge between Valencia and Atalanta will be broadcast live exclusively by Sky

This is the second race in history between these two teams, which had never faced each other before the first leg. The one played against Valencia at San Siro was also the first match for Atalanta against a Spanish club. This game ended 4-1 in favor of the Nerazzurri, who only managed to score four goals in a single European match in the 1990/1991 UEFA Cup round of 32 against Fenerbahce. In addition, with this result, Atalanta also became the third team to score four goals in the first knockout game played in the Champions League after Manchester United in 1996/1997 and Valencia in 1999/2000. Only four teams managed, in the return match, to overturn a passive of 3 or 4 goals in previous 36: two of these are Spanish, Deportivo La Coruna against Milan in 2003/2004 and Barcelona against PSG in 2016/2017. Valencia lost their last home game against an Italian team: 0-2 with Juventus in 2018.

Atalanta played only one game after the first leg against Valencia, winning 7-2 at Via del Mare against Lecce.

CORONAVIRUS – All Italy blocked: all citizens will not be able to move from their municipality without serious motivation until April 3

italy

Few times I vent in critical post but this time it is really necessary. The Italian government issues 1 decree a day based on the evolution of coronavirus infections. Until yesterday only the Lombardy region was closed but from now on all Italy is closed and this is because before the decree closing the north, there was a news leak that allowed thousands of people to flee from north to south , putting the whole country at serious risk .. It is ridiculous enough that an entire country is on its knees for a virus that not only has low mortality but affects only the elderly and there are no beds for intensive care .. L Italy is becoming the laughing stock of the world and it will be difficult to recover from this situation, especially for the compromised global image.

Sometimes I think that Italy is governed by a country of old Masons because life in the other European countries runs smoothly, or almost as if nothing happened. Health comes first, but in this case we are paradoxical of everything …

If I think that Italy has a free health system instead other countries (such as the USA) cannot afford hospitalization without a credit card, it makes us smile. The truth is that by missing hospital beds, doctors would be forced to take responsibility for giving priority to the young people most likely to survive …

Even masses and all religious services were interrupted … No country had come to this except China …

When I think that American soldiers risk their lives every day while Italian citizens must stay at home in order not to infect ‘grandparents’, it is the parody of an apocalypse without values ​​…

The streets are empty, few people around. Only supermarkets are obliged to remain open, to allow people to buy basic necessities. It is a country that is going crazy ..
