The two Champions League promotion contestants go head-to-head at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia as Atalanta welcome AC Milan to Bergamo.
Unbeaten in their last eight games across all competitions (W6, D2), the hosts have a chance to leapfrog fourth-placed AC Milan should they pull off a victory here. Unexpectedly, but the Goddess have scored more goals than any other Italian team this campaign although just 20 of 50 goals they’ve bagged in Serie A have come at home. Gian Piero Gasperini comes into this meeting looking to post third back-to-back SA win heavily relying on the fact his men have scored 2+ match goals in six of their last eight competitive home clashes. Another promising thing for Gasperini is that his team managed to keep four clean slates in their previous six encounters across all competitions.
Meanwhile, the visitors are undefeated in their last six SA outings (W3, D3) as they come into this encounter hoping to bring a frustrating 7-game winless run against Atlanta (D5, L2). Quite uncomfortable away from home, the Rossoneri have secured just three wins on 11 SA road trips this term (W3, D6, L2), barely picking up two triumphs in their last nine road clashes across all competitions (W2, D5, L2). Gennaro Gattuso’s principal worry ahead of this trip is that his men scored just five goals on their previous seven SA away meetings, bagging 2+ match goals only once in the process. Mainly thanks to impressive defensive displays, all of AC Milan’s last seven SA road games have produced under 2.5 goals, with four ending with one goal or less.
