Atalanta vs AC Milan

, KO: 19:45 Oct 3, 2021, Gewiss Stadium
AC Milan

Dangerous customers Atalanta host AC Milan in a top Italian Serie A clash at the Gewiss Stadium. Both teams have shown some good form this season, particularly in attack and look set to serve up goals.

Atalanta are coming off a 2-2 draw with champions Inter Milan in their previous Serie A fixture. They recovered from a slow start to lead before the break through Ruslan Malinovskiy and Rafael Toloi but conceded the equaliser in the second half.

The Bergamo club are recovering from a slow start to the season and are unbeaten in their last five matches across all competitions. They have claimed three wins in their last four matches in that run, including a 1-0 victory over Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League.

Manager Gian Piero Gasperini’s men are likely to be boosted by the return of striker Luis Muriel, who has a good understanding with fellow forward Duvan Zapata. However, they remain vulnerable at the back and have conceded in their last two home matches in Serie A.

AC Milan have made a fine start to the Serie A this season and are sitting second on the table, two points behind leaders Napoli. They are one of three unbeaten teams left in the league and claimed a 2-1 victory over Spezia in their previous Serie A fixture with Daniel Maldini and Brahim Diaz getting the goals.

The Rossoneri have failed to transmit their good Serie A form to Europe where have lost both their Champions League matches this season. They were beaten 2-1 by Atletico Madrid on Tuesday despite taking an early lead through Rafael Leao.

Like his counterpart at Atalanta, AC Milan manager Stefano Pioli also favours an open style of play with forward Brahim Diaz particularly impressive in recent weeks. Milan have kept just one clean sheet in their last five matches across all competitions.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have Atalanta as favourites with a home win priced at 13/11 by SBK. A victory for AC Milan is valued at 41/17 with Vbet while a draw is set at odds of 11/4 by bet365.

Recent head to head

Atalanta and AC Milan have claimed two wins each and two draws from their last six matches. Both teams won the away fixture last season with Milan claiming a 3-0 victory in Bergamo while Atalanta triumphed 2-0 at the San Siro.

Players to watch

Strikers Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel have a prolific partnership in attack and Atalanta will have both men available at the same time for the first time this season. Betfred has Zapata at 6/4 to score anytime while betway is offering 13/10 on Muriel in the same market.

Brahim Diaz has been the player in form for AC Milan and has scored in his last two Serie A matches. The Spanish forward is priced at 15/4 by bet365 to find the net in Bergamo.

Anything else catch the eye?

There were over 3.5 goals in Atalanta’s last Serie A fixture and Unibet is offering odds of 7/4 for a similar outcome. Atalanta have opened the scoring in two of their last three matches and could be tipped to score first at 3/4 with BetVictor.

There have been more goals before the break in Atalanta’s last two Serie A matches so the first half can be backed as the highest scoring half at 11/5 with BoyleSport.
