Team News

  • Gasperini will be without two defenders, so Donati will play in defence once again and Garcia will join him and Munoz at the back.
  • Formica will earn his first start in the Rosanero shirt, playing just behind the lone striker.
  • Dybala will play up front as Miccoli is suspended.
  • Brivio is suspended, so Colantuono will play Del Grosso, who just moved from Siena.
  • Maxi Moralez will start on the bench once again, with Bonaventura in the trequartista role.
  • Denis will play up front, having been involved in some unsuccessful transfer talks in the last few days.

Prediction

  • Palermo have failed to win any of their last 8 matches and now Gasperini's job is insecure. A match against Atalanta at home is one that the Rosanero need to win, otherwise safety could be even more distant.
  • The Bergamasca are also struggling to win, with their last victory dating back to early December. Colantuono is not staring a relegation battle in the face yet, but defeat here could mean that Atalanta are dragged into a fight until the very end.
  • Both teams are clearly not playing well. Atalanta had a good game against Milan, but a stronger opponent usually leads to improved focus and the team avoiding big mistakes. Atalanta and Palermo both lack a working style and they may try to find temporary solutions to get points, like exploiting set pieces.
