BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Sunday night, Atalanta host Milan at the Gewiss Stadium, in one of the picks of the games in Serie A this weekend.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s team have now quite hit their top gear in Serie A this season just yet. The Nerazzurri are currently seventh place in the Italian top-flight table, having taken 11 points from their six league matches this season.
A 2-2 draw at reigning Italian champions Inter last time out did make the home team unbeaten in three games in Serie A, which is a start. However, it ended a promising two-game winning run for the boys from Bergamo.
Atalanta’s recent league form at the Gewiss Stadium has been poor by their usual standards. A 2-1 win over Sassuolo in their last home game in the league ended a three-game winless run on home soil in the Italian top-flight.
Stefano Pioli’s team are enjoying another promising Serie A campaign. The Rossoneri are second in the table, trailing league leaders Napoli by two points.
The visitors have won five of their six league outings this season after a 2-1 weekend win over Spezia. The result also means that Milan are unbeaten in their previous 11 matches in the Italian top-flight.
The Rossoneri have been dangerous opposition on their travels of late, as the men from Milan have won five of their last six away games in Serie A. They have also lost just once in 11 matches on their travels in the Italian top-flight.
Atalanta will be without Federico Mattiello through suspension, while Hans Hateboer and Luis Muriel look set to miss out through injury.
Milan have several players that look set to miss out through injury, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Junior Messias, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Rade Krunic, Simon Kjaer and Alessandro Plizzari.
Atalanta’s recent upturn in form in Serie A suggests that they may just have enough to take something against in-form Milan. Therefore, we are backing this game to finish in an entertaining draw.
