In the seventh round of the Italian Serie A, Atalanta hosts Milan. To remind you dear friends, there will be a short break on Monday and Tuesday, after which on Wednesday and Thursday are the very curious semifinals of the forgotten League of Nations tournament, again on the grounds of "Botusha", and from Friday the next rounds of world qualifiers in the zone. Europe.
Atalanta enters this match with a five-point deficit from their opponent, but with the confidence of the 2: 2 draw, recorded against the champions and fellow citizens of today's guests - Inter of Giuseppe Meazza. It was a crazy match with a lot of goal positions and dramas and it shows that the "Goddess" is getting into her familiar form and the attack is regaining its goal-scoring skills. The players of Gian Piero Gasperini were busy on Wednesday in the Champions League, after a huge advantage they won only 1: 0 on this field against Young Boys with 1: 0 and are leaders in their group. Today he welcomes a team without a loss and a possible victory will be of great importance not only with the three points, but also from a psychological point of view and confidence for the future. Gossens and Hatebour are injured, and Palomino's involvement is in question.
Milan, as it was mentioned, in Serie A has five successes and only one draw against Juventus, and in Turin, but they come for this complicated visit with a lowered mood, after the second consecutive loss in the Champions League. This is a worrying fact, after the dramatic 2: 3 with a turn for 2: 3 against Liverpool at Anfield, on Tuesday they were defeated even more heartily at home again with a turn from Atletico Madrid with 1: 2. The late goals in the 84th and 97th from a penalty helped the expulsion of Frank Cassie in the 29th minute and the "Rossoneri" lagged behind the first two places. This must be forgotten today, negative thoughts will not help and this task should be taken on by coach Stefano Pioli, who, however, has problems with the team. Ibrahimovic, as well as Bakayoko, Krunic and Florentzi, remain out of action, and the involvement of Plitzari and Messias is questionable.
Here are the interesting direct matches in the last three seasons - in 2018 - 2019 - 2: 2 in Milan and a victory for Milan on this field with 3: 1. In 2019 - 2020 - a huge 5: 0 for Atalanta on their land and a draw of Giuseppe Meazza - 1: 1. Last season, the two teams exchanged "pure" successes on foreign soil - 3: 0 for Atalanta and 2: 0 for the "Rossoneri". With 1.5 / 1 the hosts are favorites, the tips are no goal, 2, X2, goal / goal and over 2.5 goals. We offer you what happened in the last 4 of 5 matches of Atalanta - goal / goal prediction, we wish all pleasant Sunday emotions!
Atalanta against AC Milan
This match is a derby of Lombardy.
In the last 12 meetings there have been 6 draws.
This is an indicator not only for the contested meetings.
But from the point of view of us as gamblers, it shows that the "X" sign is the one that has the greatest value.
Atalanta will be without three important defenders for this match.
Apart from Robin Gossens, who was known, Raphael Toloi and Merich Demiral had now joined him.
Ibrahimovic, Florentzi, Krunic and Bakayoko will be absent for Milan.
The problems of Atalanta
Atalanta have lost only one game so far. And they make a good start to the season.
However, there are several problems with them.
First of all, the hosts were very lucky. And that can't last long.
They were beaten by Turin, but won the match. They were also beaten by Inter, but scored a point.
In fact, they showed better football only against Sassuolo.
And the other 3 teams that outplayed were either from the second half of last season's ranking, or newly promoted.
The other problems are that Atalanta lags behind all other top teams and more established goal positions, and more allowed ones.
Now another of these teams is visiting them.
Forecast for Atalanta - Milan
Milan not only have no loss in the Italian championship.
But also the 3rd team created the most and the 2nd allowed the least goal positions.
With such convincing characteristics, the Rossoneri cannot lose this match.
It is true that Atalanta enter after a victory over Young Boys, and Milan after a loss to Atletico Madrid.
But it is a real madness for this reason for bookmakers to determine the hosts as a favorite.
In this match, however, Atalanta will be limited by missing fullbacks, which they rely on a lot in their game.
Victory for Milan this time.
