Atalanta coach Gasperini admits Ilicic likely out of PSG clash

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini admits Josip Ilicic is unlikely to be fit for their Champions League quarterfinal with PSG.

Gasperini says Ilicic's absence will be a blow.

He said, “Ilicic is fundamental for us, it was his season up until March, he was devastating in both Serie A and Europe.

"It would be like Juventus missing Paulo Dybala or Lazio playing without Ciro Immobile, even Inter without Romelu Lukaku."

For their part, PSG are missing Kylian Mbappe for the tie.
