UEFA.com correspondent's opinion
Atalanta did it for the second year in a row! This time they won all three away games and in the process became the second Italian team to win at Anfield'. There were ups and downs, but Duván Zapata and now-departed Alejandro 'Papu' It deserves a spot in the last 16' which shines like Gómez. The question is: can they beat the last eight now?
