Stefano Colantuono admits Atalanta “fear this game” against Bologna and especially Alessandro Diamanti on Sunday.
The Orobici are fresh from a shock home defeat to Genoa and travel to the Stadio Dall’Ara tomorrow afternoon.
“Bologna have done some great things at home in recent weeks and I saw they were in great shape,” said the Coach.
“They are solid and the last game they lost to Sampdoria was an unfair punishment for the performance. We certainly wouldn’t turn our noses up at a draw.
“Bologna have an extremely dangerous player like Diamanti, but we want to fight for the points. I will admit, though, I fear this game.”
Atalanta were in action on Wednesday with a 3-1 Coppa Italia victory over Cesena.
Atalanta squad for Bologna: Bellini, Bonaventura, Brivio, Carmona, Cazzola, Cigarini, Consigli, De Luca, Denis, Ferri, Frezzolini, Lucchini, Manfredini, Matheu, Moralez, Parra, Peluso, Polito, Radovanovic, Raimondi, Schelotto, Stendardo, Troisi
