Team News

  • Colantuono will be without both Cigarini and Biondini in the middle of the field, so Cazzola will partner up with Carmona.
  • Peluso is back after his suspension and will take back his place on the left side of the defence.
  • As Bellini is injured, Stendardo and Manfredini should be safe to play.
  • Delneri will still have few options for the left side as Vargas is only just back from injury and Antonelli will be absent.
  • Jankovic didn't take part in the practice match the team played during the week, but he should be on the pitch in Bergamo.
  • Canini and Granqvist are in competition for a spot in the defence.

Prediction

  • Atalanta's good streak ended with a loss in Florence, which has not been an easy ground for any team to visit so far. Colantuono and his players are still confident, in good spirits and comfortably sitting in the top-half of the table.
  • Genoa dropped to the bottom of the league last week by losing the derby and Delneri is yet to win his first point this season, with the city not backing the team as it had before.
  • Playing away from home could be a relief from some pressure for Genoa, but Atalanta are tough opponents for such a difficult moment of the season. Expect the hosts to keep control of the match, while Genoa will have to play with high concentration levels to avoid any mistakes. Colantuono only needs to be patient and wait for Genoa to lose focus.
