Following their victory against Lazio, Atalanta are gearing up for their clash against Genoa, however, the team has received some concerning news regarding injuries to key players, particularly Jose Luis Palomino.
Sky Sport Italia report that the Atalanta defender has suffered an injury blow during training, later diagnosed as a first-degree muscle injury to his right hamstring. This setback adds to the defensive concerns for Atalanta, with Isakj Hein also continuing individual training sessions. Palomino’s injury marks another setback in what has been a challenging season for him, having not featured in any league matches so far and only making four substitute appearances.
On a more positive note, there are signs of improvement for Teun Koopmeiners. After missing matches against Udinese and Lazio, Koopmeiners has begun to integrate partially with the group after completing individual training sessions. The Dutch midfielder is eager to return to the squad for the 24th Serie A match against Genoa, aiming to contribute to Atalanta’s push for Champions League qualification.
Despite the absence of Koopmeiners in the last two matches, Atalanta managed to secure victories against Udinese and Lazio, both at home. The upcoming fixture against Genoa presents another challenge, but Gasperini’s side remais in good form and will look to continue their winning streak.
