Jose Luis Palomino admits this will be “a different” Atalanta against Genoa amid bans and injuries, but he’s still confident.
It kicks off at 14.00 UK time (13.00 GMT), click here for the line-ups and LIVEBLOG.
Papu Gomez, Andrea Masiello and Gianluca Mancini are suspended, with Rafael Toloi out of action, so Hans Hateboer is pulled into the role of centre-back.
“Some teammates have a chance to play today, we tested some things out during the week,” defender Palomino told Sky Sport Italia.
“The important thing is that we know how we must play back there and we can put in a good team performance.”
This is only the third round of the season that Atalanta are playing without their captain, Gomez.
“It’s true that we are a little different today, as we are without Papu too, but we’ll see what we can do.”
