Coming off four wins in a row Real Madrid will be looking to continue their streak against Atalanta, who must be feeling confident with just one defeat in the past 18 matches.

The Italian club have established themselves as one of the most thrilling sides in Europe, but in terms of financial prowess there's still a long way to reach Real Madrid who posted turnover of €714.9 million last season compared to their €147.9 million.

While Real Madrid's wages-to-revenue ratio climbed to 57.5 per cent last season, Atalanta's stood at 46.7 per cent the year before.
