Atalanta – AC Milan : Preview & Prediction
The Atalanta, after the elimination from the Europa League by the Borussia Dortmund, has started a long run that has brought it, two days from the end, to a point from the sixth place and with the concrete possibility to play again entry into Europe. Milan is precisely the team that must defend the sixth position in the standings. The 4-1 inflicted to Verona has yielded to the Rossoneri the counter-part, although obtained against a team practically already in Serie B. The Bergamo have instead faced a tough fight on the field of Lazio, engaged in the Champions race, still managing to bring home a precious point. The jewel Barrow, author of the goal of the advantage, is now a reality in the team of Gasperini. The ranking is the only good news of the week for Milan, which lost the Italian Cup final with Juventus 4-0. Good match for the boys of Gattuso for 55 minutes, then the uncertainties of Donnarumma have given the green light to the bianconeri. The Calabrian coach confirms the eleven owner defeated on Wednesday, with the exception of Cutrone, who will probably be replaced by Kalinic. Gasperini will propose his usual 3-5-2, with the Cristante experiment a little more advanced in place of Ilicic and Barrow next to the Papu Gomez. Atalanta plays in his field, where the big ones often have to bow.
There is only one point of difference in the standings between Atalanta and Milan.
The Bergamo are unbeaten at home for 6 rounds, where they have scored 13 times in their last 17 games.
In the recent 9 days the Rossoneri have beaten only Bologna and Verona.
Milan have conceded 12 goals in the last 5 games away from “San Siro”.
Since Gasperini sits on the bench of Atalanta, the direct matches ended with 2 draws and a victory of the “Goddess”.
Very important direct confrontation for Europe. Milan has more talent, but comes from a scorching disappointment, is not very well and will play on a field where the Atalanta imposes very high rhythms and, almost always, the draw or defeat to the opponent in turn.
