Atalanta have lost Ezequiel Schelotto for 15-20 days after tests showed a strained ligament in his right knee.
The Italian international winger limped off in agony during Sunday’s 1-1 draw away to Cagliari.
Tests have now confirmed the 23-year-old strained the collateral ligament in his right knee.
This type of injury will probably rule him out for two to three weeks.
