Stefano Colantuono has underlined that his Atalanta side can't make any mistakes if they want to get a result against Inter on Wednesday.
The Bergamo boys have been a revelation in the championship and they would be second in the table without their six-point penalty.
"We are playing against an Inter side of great value and a team who are candidates to win the League," the tactician noted.
"Inter are a team of undeniable quality and we'll have to be perfect if we want to take a result home with us."
While Atalanta have excelled, Inter have struggled after collecting just seven points from seven games in Serie A.
"We are Atalanta and they are Inter," the former Palermo boss added. "You can't compare the two sides.
"We've started the season well, especially as things were rather delicate for us at the beginning of the campaign.
"I must demand that my team respect Inter, but we are hungry to do well and everyone in the squad is applying themselves."
Colantuono added that Matteo Brighi won't be risked because of fitness issues, while he still doesn't know whether Luca Cigarini will be available.
