Colantuono has Parma concerns

Stefano Colantuono has told Atalanta to be very wary of Parma this afternoon. “We must maintain our humility.”

The Bergamaschi have had a strong start to the campaign despite their six-point penalty over a betting scandal and would be in third place without that handicap.

“We are working well and I think we can have our say in this game,” said the Coach.

“However, we must maintain the approach and humility that has characterised the start of our campaign and I'm certain we can make things difficult for Parma.

“It is going to be a very difficult encounter, as Parma are one of the form teams in Serie A at the moment. Don't forget last week they won away to Napoli.

“Without doubt their danger man is Sebastian Giovinco. He is their star player and makes the difference for the Ducali, so we need to keep a close eye on him when he changes gear.

“It's going to be a good game and we go into this without reverence.”

Tomas Manfredini and Ferreira Pinto are out injured for this trip to the Stadio Tardini.
