Stefano Colantuono warns Atalanta will need to be “electric” to get the better of Serie A leaders Udinese.
The Orobici had been unbeaten until their 3-1 loss at Roma before the break for international duty and are still in a solid position despite the six-point penalty.
“Antonio Di Natale is fast, small and mobile, so we need to organise the defence to keep him quiet. We don't have many centre-backs with his characteristics, but then Di Natale can trouble anyone,” said the Coach.
“In the first half against Roma we were not at our best in every respect, but we picked up 10 points from five games, so it would be harsh to criticise.
“We know full well that we cannot lower our guard to the very end, as we are destined to suffer until the final round.
“The stronger we are throughout the season, the less we'll have to suffer. I want to see an Atalanta side that is aggressive, concentrated, organised and so fired up we're electric.”
