Atalanta prepared for tonight’s game against Manchester United at Man City’s training ground with Gian Piero Gasperini meeting Pep Guardiola and his staff.
La Dea visit Old Trafford at 20.00 UK time.
They are the Group F leaders with four points in two games.
Atalanta beat Empoli 4-1 away in Serie A on Sunday, while the Red Devils suffered a 4-2 defeat against Leicester City.
This morning, the Serie A side trained at Manchester City’s training ground, and the Citizens’ coach Pep Guardiola met Gasperini.
Atalanta published a picture of the meeting between the two coaches on Twitter.
The former Barcelona coach has huge respect for Gasperini.
In 2019, before a Champions League match with La Dea, he said: “Playing Atlanta is like going to the dentist. It’s really, really tough and we knew that it would be. It was a great performance in every sense.”
