Milan scored 118 goals in the 1949-50 season. Atalanta enters Wednesday’s quarterfinal having scored 11 goals in its last three fixtures in the Champions League. Atalanta’s attack is led by Josip Ilicic, who became the first player to score four goals in a Champions League away knockout match against Valencia in the round of 16.
