Team News

  • Just when he was starting to get some playing time in the midfield, Radovanovic got injured and will have to leave his place to Carmona.
  • Colantuono is experimenting with a new line-up that could allow him to switch between 3-4-2-1 and 4-4-1-1 without changing players.
  • Bellini would be the key to this development, since he can play both as right-back and centre-back.
  • At least one of Benatia and Domizzi will regain a place in the starting XI, especially as Heurtaux is suspended.
  • Pereyra will be moved back to the midfield to make room for Muriel, who should support Di Natale.
  • Armero is not available and will be replaced by Pasquale on the left flank.

Prediction

  • Atalanta suffered a heavy defeat in Turin against Juventus, and now a tough match lies ahead. The Bergamasca must keep picking up points to maintain the gap they built between themselves and the relegation zone.
  • Udinese have climbed back into the top half of the table, and exiting the Europa League will let them focus on the domestic front. Guidolin wants to prove that he can obtain European qualification again, but he's keeping his head down as usual as a psychological strategy.
  • This match may be interesting on the tactical side as Atalanta are trying to change their formation and they will therefore match Udinese's three-man defence. The hosts may lose some strength on the flanks, but Bonaventura and Moralez supplying Denis could be really dangerous. On the other side, Udinese are still waiting to see Muriel in action and at full fitness, so he may be the surprise of this round of fixtures.
