Atalanta – AC Milan, Serie A Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR ATALANTA - AC MILAN
Atalanta is in great shape and plays better and better in every game. They are one of the strongest hosts, especially, when it comes to their matches against the stronger rivals in front of their fans. They are very good in attack too, and their series without loss is now 8 consecutive games. Atalanta showed a character in the last match and turned SPAL at this stadium for 2-1.
Milan seems to have entered a good period and especially fans of the Rossoneri are happy with the good performance and the fast adaptation of their new striker, Piatek, who scored 2 goals in 3 games. Milan are still in 4th place, but behind them are 3 teams, which are only 1 point less, so this match is key. Milan will come quite motivated after they played good against Roma in their last visit and were close to winning there.
Each of Atalanta’s last 5 home games against AC Milan finished in a BTTS format. In addition, Atalanta scored 11 goals in their last 5 home games against Lazio, Roma, Juventus and SPAL. Apparently at home they are very offensive and Milan will hardly keep a clean sheet, but Milan have scored at least 1 goal in 18 of their last 21 away games in Serie A, so we expect to see quality and very beautiful football from the two teams. Prediction – BTTS at 1.72
