TWO of Europe's most entertaining sides meet again after a first leg goal glut as Atalanta visit Germany to face Bayer Leverkusen in a heavyweight Europa League clash.

The Italians triumphed 3-2 in an entertaining first leg clash and the abolition of the away goal adds an extra dimension to this tie.

Leverkusen are having a fine season in the Bundesliga and remain in third place despite a surprising weekend 1-0 defeat to Cologne at home

They defeated Celtic home and away to make it to this stage as they topped their Group Stage having also thrashed Real Betis.

Atalanta dropped into the Europa League after going out of the Champions League, arguably unluckily, and they beat Olympiakos home and away to make it here.

On Sunday they failed to break down Genoa at home and were also surprisingly held to a goalless draw.

And while it may seem strange talking about entertainment and goals when both sides failed to score at all in the weekend, that really should be put down as a temporary blip.

How the bookies view it

Leverkusen are 6/5 favourites with bet365 to win on the night with the Bergamo outfit 39/19 with SBK. The draw is 13/5 with Coral.

Yet it's a different matter to qualify, with Leverkusen 17/10 outsiders with Paddy Power to go through to the quarter finals and Atalanta odds-on at 4/9 to qualify.

Recent head to heads

Atalanta won that first leg 3-2 as can be seen below. That's been the only meeting between the sides.

Players to watch

Czech hitman Patrik Schick is injured with a calf strain and Moussa Diaby will be their key man. He netted in the first leg in Italy and is 9/4 with bet365 to net on Thursday.

Colombian striker Luis Muriel was the hero of the first leg with a double and has eight goals this season. He's 6/5 to add to his tally with bet365.

Anything else catch the eye?

Goals will again be all the rage here and no wonder. Atalanta's goals rate in Europe this season is phenomenal. In 11 games in the Champions League and Europa League, they have scored in all of them and have netted two goals or more in an incredible ten of them.

They are 5/4 to continue that record of at least scoring twice with William Hill and that looks eminently backable.

There's every chance both sides will come out swinging again and the 11/4 with bet365 for both teams to score in the first half could easily land if they both go for it again.
