Stefano Colantuono’s attacking headache is turning into a migraine after German Denis joined Guido Marilungo on the Atalanta treatment table.
Marilungo’s season is over after he ruptured knee ligaments in the 0-0 draw at Inter and Denis has now suffered an injury.
The 30-year-old has picked up a left calf muscle strain which is expected to see him sidelined for the next three weeks.
Denis is Atalanta’s top scorer this term thanks to his 15 goals in 26 League games.
Boss Colantuono is now only left with strikers Simone Tiribocchi and 20-year-old Manolo Gabbiadini. They face Bologna this weekend.
