Atalanta suffer Zapata blow

Atalanta have been dealt a huge blow as striker Duvan Zapata will be out for at least three weeks with a thigh injury.

Sky Sport Italia reports Zapata returned from Colombia duty with a grade-I adductor problem.

Consequently, the broadcaster expects him to be out for a minimum of three weeks.

The 28-year-old will therefore miss Atalanta’s next Serie A matches against Lazio, Udinese, Napoli and Cagliari.

He is also set to skip their crunch Champions League double-header with Manchester City.
