AC Milan vs Atalanta

, KO: 19:45 Feb 25, 2024, San Siro
Atalanta

AC Milan will be targeting a return to winning ways as they welcome in-from Atalanta to San Siro for a Serie A fixture on Sunday. Neither team has shown much defensive solidity in recent weeks and given the quality in both attacks, goals could be expected here.

It has been a difficult week for AC Milan, who head into Sunday’s clash with two straight defeats. First they were beaten 4-2 at Monza last time out in Serie A before suffering a 3-2 defeat to Rennes in their Europa League playoff clash on Thursday.

Despite the defeat to Rennes, AC Milan still progressed in the Europa League thanks to the 3-0 victory in the first leg. The last two results also highlighted some defensive vulnerabilities that could be exploited by a rampant Atalanta side.

The good news for AC Milan is that they have been on the road in recent weeks and are returning to the fortress of San Siro. Stefano Pioli’s men are unbeaten in their last seven Serie A home matches, claiming six wins in that run.

Atalanta have been one of the form sides in recent weeks as they are unbeaten in their last nine matches. Gian Piero Gasperini’s men have picked up eight wins in that run and are currently fourth on the standings.

The Bergamo club travel to San Siro off the back of a 3-0 victory over Sassuolo in their previous Serie A future. Mario Pasalic opened the scoring early in the first half while Teun Koppmeiners and Mitchel Bakker added further goals after the break.

A slight problem for Atalanta is their away form having picked up just one win in their last five Serie A matches on the road. However that win came in their previous away fixture as they triumphed 4-1 at Genoa.

AC Milan have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 11/8 by Betfred to claim the win. A victory for Atalanta is valued at 2/1 by Paddy Power while a draw is set at odds of 13/5 by William Hill.

Players to watch
