Atalanta BC defender Luigi Sala will be out of action until the new year after straining his right thigh.
The 28-year-old defender faces at least three weeks on the sidelines but should be fit when Serie A resumes after the winter break on 12 January.
The former AC Milan defender has played eleven matches this season for the Bergamo-based side and is actually their leading scorer with three goals. This is Sala's second season with Atalanta following his move from Milan.
