Italian giant AC Milan are all set to host Atalanta following their back-to-back defeats against Monza and Rennes. Their city rival, Inter Milan, are now leading the point table of Serie A, while AC Milan are far behind in the title race. With 52 points, the Rossonerri are now in 3rd place with 11 points behind the table topper.

Atalanta, on the other hand, have suffered some defeats early in the season. But they are now in unstoppable form, winning all their last six games across all competitions. They are among the three clubs in Serie A to win their last five games in the league. So this match would be a high-voltage game when AC Milan welcome Atalanta tonight at San Siro.

Stats & Facts

  • Atalanta have already defeated AC Milan twice this season – once in Serie A and once in Coppa Italia. Atalanta eliminated AC Milan from the quarterfinal of the Coppa Italia, while they defeated the Rossonerri in Serie A back in December.
  • Atalanta have won only three of their last nine league games against AC Milan. As they have already won this season, a win would see them completing the league double over AC Milan for the first time since the 2007-2008 season.
  • However, AC Milan has always been a tough side at San Siro. They have a strong record against Atalanta at San Siro, winning their last two meetings with Atalanta. Additionally, they have kept a clean sheet during those two matches.
  • Since the gameweek 21, Atalanta have won all possible 15 points in Serie A. In addition, they have scored more goals (17) than any other side in Serie A during this period and conceded fewer goals (2).

Team News

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli made six changes during the match against Monza. The manager is likely to recall his best players and deploy the best possible XI tonight.

The Rossonerri got a massive boost as Pierre Kalulu, Fikayo Tomori, and captain Davide Calabria returned to training. They should be available ahead of tonight’s important game. However, the home side will miss the service of Luka Jovic due to his suspension.

As for Atalanta, Charles De Ketelaere, who joined Atalanta from AC Milan on loan, is all set to face off against his parent club. He is in brilliant form for Atalanta, scoring six goals and six assists so far in the season.

Possible Lineup for AC Milan:

Maignan; Calabria, Gabbia, Kjaer, Hernandez; Bennacer, Reijnders; Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, Leao; Giroud

Possible Lineup for Atalanta:

Carnesecchi; Scalvini, Djimsiti, Kolasinac; Holm, De Roon, Ederson, Ruggeri; Koopmeiners, Miranchuk; De Ketelaere

Prediction: AC Milan 2-2 Atalanta

As the home team, AC Milan should win the game comfortably. But the reality is different as Atalanta are having their best form in the league. They have already defeated the Rossonerri twice in all competitions, so it would be no surprise if they beat AC Milan once again. However, both teams are strong enough, and we expect a high-voltage match tonight at San Siro. The chances are high that this match will end in a tie.
