Gian Piero Gasperini has been presented with a selection crisis ahead of Atalanta’s trip to Manchester City as injuries plague his defence.
Both Jose Luis Palomino and Simon Kjaer will miss the game in England, presented the Serie A representatives with a real problem.
The Argentinian has an issue with his left flexor, whereas Kjaer is suffering with a right adductor problem.
Gasperini will likely give Roger Ibanez a place in the starting XI on Tuesday, despite the Brazilian not yet starting a game this season.
La Dea already have defensive concerns when their full squad is available, as was shown in Rome on Saturday where they blew a 3-0 lead to draw with Lazio.
