Line-ups: SPAL-Atalanta

SPAL striker Andrea Petagna faces former club Atalanta, who will be out to end their slump this evening.

Petagna helped Atalanta to consecutive Europa League finishes in Serie A but scored only 11 goals in 75 appearances for the Dea, prior to joining SPAL on loan with an obligation to buy.

The hosts were flying after three wins and as many clean sheets on the trot, until Torino ended their 100 percent start just before the international break.

SPAL can finally play at their newly-refurbished Stadio Paolo Mazza when hosting Atalanta on Monday night.

The arena in Ferrara was given the all-clear by officials today who inspected it after months of works.

SPAL are currently third in Serie A after two wins and a defeat to Torino.
