Atalanta will face Sampdoria this weekend without the services of Giacomo Bonaventura and Stefano Lucchini.
The duo underwent medical tests this morning which confirmed a left thigh strain for the midfielder, with the experienced defender suffering a right thigh problem.
Boss Stefano Colantuono, whose side beat Lazio at the weekend, will be without the two for the next three weeks.
