The 33-year-old defender was carried off during Sunday's 2-0 defeat to Sassuolo.

Bellini underwent tests on Tuesday which showed a tendon detachment in his right thigh which will require at least four months of treatment.

The only consolation for Atalanta coach Stefano Colantuono is that tests done on defender Guglielmo Stendardo have ruled out any damage to his knee and he should be available to face unbeaten Roma on Sunday.

Atalanta have lost just once at home this season and are 10th in Serie A.
