AC Milan will be desperate to settle the score with Atalanta after a dismal 5-0 defeat in the Serie A reverse fixture when the two sides meet at the Stadio San Siro this midweek.
High-flying Milan have netted over 1.5 goals in all nine of their Serie A outings post restart, managing an average of 3 goals across those matches (W7, D2). Far more aggressive after the break, Stefano Pioli’s men have notched 70.37% of the 27 goals they scored during that nine-game sequence in the second half of play (19). In turn, 19 of the 27 Serie A home goals the ‘Rossoneri’ bagged this season arrived after halftime. That’s a sharp contrast to Milan’s recent scoring success against Atalanta. Indeed, the Milanese giants have drawn a blank in four of their last five top-flight H2Hs held at this stadium (D3, L2).
On the other hand, the visitors have racked up a 15-game unbeaten run in Serie A going into this encounter (W12, D3), netting a minimum of two goals 12 times during that streak. What’s more, Atalanta’s haul of 95 goals scored in Serie A is the division’s high, with Gian Piero Gasperini’s side bagging an average of 2.71 goals per league fixture. In turn, ‘La Dea’ remain the only team in Italy’s top-tier to smash a 40-goal barrier away from home, with 59.09% (26) of the 44 Serie A away goals they managed so far arriving after the break.
