Atalanta pick squad to face Eagles midfielder

The coach of Serie A team, Atalanta, Stefano Colantuono has named 26 players that will have a chance to take a go at Super Eagles midfielder Joel Obi and his Parma teammates in Wednesday’s Week 5 League tie at the Stadio Angelo Massimino (Catania).

Obi who last weekend made his debut show for Parma in their 0-0 away draw against city rivals Catania will hope he can get more than the 26 minutes of action he was handed in his first match.


Parma are not well placed on the League standings as they are currently third from the bottom and would be keen to record their first win of the season having played four matches; managing just two draws and two losses.
