Atalanta vs. Paris Saint-Germain Head-to-Head
PSG, won Ligue 1 at a canter again, winning 22 of their 27 games. However, the French season was horribly curtailed by COVID-19, and despite their dominance, Thomas Tuchel’s side have played just twice since March. They won the Coupe de France with a 1-0 win over AS Saint-Etienne and needed a penalty shoot-out to defeat Lyon in the Coupe de la Ligue.
Given Atalanta’s sparse record in European competition – this is their first voyage into the Champions League – it should come as no surprise that they’ve never faced Paris St. Germain before.
