Team News

  • Captain Vergassola is out, so Bolzoni should be chosen to replace him and play alongside Della Rocca in the middle of the park.
  • Angelo is finally back and will play on the right side of the midfield, leaving Belmonte on the bench.
  • There is no doubt Emeghara that will start up front, supported by Rosina and either Sestu or Valiani once again.
  • Colantuono is going to stick with the 4-4-2 that he fielded against Roma last week.
  • Canini will replace Contini, who is suspended, in the centre of the defence.
  • Livaja is set to partner up with Denis after scoring a brace in the last round.

Prediction

  • Siena ended their impressive streak of 7 points in 3 matches by losing against Juventus, but now they have a chance to resume their survival push. Also, Atalanta are only 6 points clear and it could be the first chance for the Tuscans to feel that safety is getting closer.
  • Atalanta are not in good form. Colantuono is experimenting to find a working playing style, and losing to Roma at home in a match full of emotion was a huge blow to the Bergamasca. Avoiding defeat is mandatory here in Siena, or relegation will be looming on the club.
  • The hosts will ask for the support of their fans and push from the start to make Atalanta feel uncomfortable in a hostile environment. Siena will also try to rely on Emeghara's form, but Iachini will also have to find a different solution to avoid the young striker being crushed under the pressure of always having to be the match-winner.
