Line-ups: Atalanta-Parma

Serie A Week 16 kicks off at 17.00 GMT with Parma paying visit to Atalanta and both eager to get back on track.

There had been fears of this game being snowed off, but the Stadio Azzurri d’Italia is holding up well.

The Orobici have lost their last three on the bounce and last week learned that striker Guido Marilungo will be out for six months with a ruptured knee ligament.

James Troisi, Davide Biondini, Daniele Capelli and Ferreira Pinto are also sidelined, while Guglielmo Stendardo sits out a ban in defence.

Maxi Moralez supports hitman German Denis with Giacomo Bonaventura and Ezequiel Schelotto taking the wings.

Parma were furious at the refereeing decisions in recent weeks and have won just one of their last five games.

Daniele Galloppa, Gabriele MusacciAleandro Rosi and Jaime Valdes are all on the treatment table, while Fernando Marques is dropped following a dispute.

The Ducali are hoping for their first Serie A victory in Bergamo for 11 years and it seems as if they have gone back to the 3-5-2 system after a few weeks of the 4-3-3.
