Swansea City will complete their preparations for the new Championship campaign with a friendly against Serie A side Atalanta at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday, July 27 (3pm).

The Italian club will arrive in Wales on the back of the best season in their history after finishing third in Serie A and qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

They also reached the Coppa Italia final, losing to Lazio after a run that had seen them convincingly beat Serie A champions Juventus 3-0 en route to the May showpiece.

Among other notable results were a league win at Napoli and a 4-1 thumping of Inter Milan.

I Nerazzurri are managed by the experienced Gian Piero Gasperini. The 61-year-old former Juventus midfielder - who has also had spells in charge of Inter Milan, Palermo and Genoa - took the helm in 2016.
