Atalanta and Milan are playing against each other in a match of round 24 of the Italian Serie A. The game is crucial for both sides. Atalanta and Milan have the ambitions and the potential to fight for participation in the Champions League next season and for sure will not want to lose the fixtures on Saturday.
The Black and Blues are in fantastic form and won 13 from possible 15 points in the previous five games. Last weekend Atalanta won at home with 2-1 against SPAL after a goal by Duvan Zapata in the 79th minute. The Colombian striker is a key figure in the squad of Gian Piero Gasperini, and with his 16 goals since the start of the season, he will try to improve the club record for most goals set by Filippo Inzaghi (24) in season 1996/97.
Milan also found their striker in the face of Krzysztof Piątek. The Polish forward caused a real furore in the autumn with the team of Genoa and was bought by Rossoneri in January. Over the weekend, Piątek scored his four goal for the team in the victory with 3-0 against Cagliari, which left Gennaro Gattuso’s players on the fourth place in the standings, one point more than Atalanta.
Milan are on a good run and don’t have a loss as a guest in Serie A since 21 October, when Inter won against them after a goal by Mauro Icardi in the extra time. The Rossoneri avoided the defeat in the previous two away games on Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia, but the attacking power of Atalanta this season is on another level. We think that The Black and Blues again will not lose at home versus Milan and even can take the three points. Atalanta don’t have a defeat at home in five consecutive fixtures in all competitions, where they even played against leading teams in Italy – Juventus, Roma and Lazio.
