Line-ups: Chievo-Atalanta

This is an early relegation six-pointer at the Stadio Bentegodi, as Chievo host a revitalised Atalanta.

Serie A Week 7 opens at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT), click here for a match preview.

While Chievo had a relatively strong start to the season, they have since flustered and have just four points from six rounds.

Dario Dainelli is out injured in defence, but Cyril Thereau is partnered by Alberto Paloschi in a bid to end their run of two consecutive defeats.

Atalanta, on the other hand, had a dreadful start and are now back on track following their 2-0 victory over Udinese.

The Orobici need to be wary of their terrible away form, though, having lost their last five trips outside Bergamo.

German Denis, Maxi Moralez and Giacomo Bonaventura again lead the way, though Riccardo Cazzola, Giulio Migliaccio and Cristiano Del Grosso are sidelined.

It is Davide Brivio and not Lionel Scaloni who is picked to replace Del Grosso in the back four.

Chievo: Puggioni; Sardo, Claiton, Bernardini, Drame; Improta, Bentivoglio, Rigoni, Estigarribia; Paloschi, Thereau

Atalanta: Consigli; Bellini, Stendardo, Brivio, Lucchini; Raimondi, Cigarini, Carmona, Bonaventura; Maxi Moralez; Denis
