By Soccer Blog | Mar 11, 2020

Here is a look at the player ratings from different European newspapers (French, Italian, Spanish) following Atalanta’s 4-3 second leg Round of 16 win over Valencia at the Mestalla, which sealed the Italian side’s passage into the last eight at the expense of Los Che. Josip Ilicic scored all four goals for Atalanta, making him the oldest player to score a Champions League away hat trick.

The French publication gave Ilicic a 9/10 player rating, just stopping short of awarding him one of their rare perfect 10’s. On the VCF side, Diakhaby got a player rating of 2/10!

While L’Equipe thought Atalanta goalkeeper Marco Sportiello’s performance only warranted a 4/10 rating, Italian paper Corriere dello Sport gave him a 6.5/10! They also thought Gian Piero Gasperini outplayed his VCF counterpart Albert Celades, with the former getting a manager rating of 8/10 as opposed to the latter’s 5/10.

AS thought Diakhaby’s performance wasn’t even worthy of a rating. The only VCF players to emerge with some kind of credit were goal scorers Gameiro and Ferran Torres as well as former Arsenal medio Francis Coquelin.
