Atalanta have confirmed that new midfielder Giulio Migliaccio will miss Sunday’s match against Cagliari.
The veteran joined La Dea this summer from Palermo after spending last term on loan at Fiorentina.
But the 32-year-old will not be able to make his competitive debut this weekend after the club confirmed he has damaged his right knee.
It has been revealed that collateral ligament has suffered a sprain, but the extent of the damage has yet to be confirmed.
Further tests will be conducted over the coming days.
