again.

Atalanta were qualified for the knockout stages after winning Ajax in the last round of the group stage and now are going to face Real Madrid.

Real Madrid

are the most successful team in the competition as they have won the competition four times since 2013-14 and 13 times in total.

“Real Madrid are a fantastic team, they are the history of world football,” Precassi said.

“It will be a great experience for us and we are delighted to have another world-class match.

“It’s a great pride for us to advance to the second phase of the Champions League once again.”

Percassi believes their last season's Champions League success has helped the club grow.

“It has allowed the club to grow and this is very important to us,” he said. “We want to make a good impression, that’s the main thing when you meet these great sides.

“We have a gradual growth program, hoping to be rewarded by the results."
