Ilicic, who has scored 18 goals this season for his club, is on a yellow card carried over so needs to be careful. A booking tonight will mean he will miss a potential quarter-final first leg.
The hosts need to commit more men in the box when going forward, its been a bit conservative given the aggregate score.
You would not presume Atalanta are four goals up on aggregate with this performance, they seem hungry for more goals.
Apparently recorded fan chants are being played in the stadium to drum up some atmosphere, this could be the future of football over the new few months sadly.
Atalanta are knocking the ball around with plenty of panache, the home side are struggling to win it back. They may need to go route one to get back into this tie.

Atalanta have scored an astonishing 70 goals this season, 20 more than Juventus.
Valencia have a corner after a cross is blocked. Its crossed to the back post, its headed away to Soler whose cross/shot is well wide.

KICK OFF: In front of an empty Mestalla, the visitors get the game underway.
COUNTDOWN: 5 minutes till kick off!
If Atalanta hold on, they will reach the last eight of the Champions League for the first time in their history.
A reminder of how the first leg went with good finishing from Hans Hateboer and not-so-good finishing from Maxi Lopez, who is injured for tonight's clash.
Gian Piero Gasperini has urged his side not to count their chickens early.
He said: “We need to score, as well as stay focused and defend well.
“A psychological aspect of our game that we are working on is ... we seem to get comfortable and assume the job is done when it really is not. The team were great in the first leg, but I will not celebrate until the second leg is over.”
Gollini is ruled out with a finger injury with Sportiello replacing him in goal for the visitors.
If they progress it will be a unique situation for the Italian side with all sporting events suspended in the country until April.
