Gian Piero Gasperini’s men were held to a disappointing draw against Bologna in their last fixture, he will be keen to improve on that in this game.

Winning this fixture will see Atalanta on 7 points.

A solid defensive team

Atalanta have scored an impressive two goals so far this season, however their performances have at times been average. This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Luis Muriel (1), Roberto Piccoli (1), and Juan Musso.

Atalanta are missing four players through injury or illness. This will affect Gian Piero Gasperini’s selection choices significantly.
