Milan vs Atalanta Prediction, Betting Tip & Match Preview

Milan - Atalanta prediction and analysis

AC Milan and Atalanta face each other in this match at San Siro on Sunday night.

This meeting is also a direct clash for the places that give the right to participate in the Champions League.

It is in this part of the standings that the great intrigue this season lies. Once the de facto champion is known.

But the teams between 2nd and 6th place are gathered in only 6 points.

A severe crisis had occurred in the Milan team at the beginning of 2023.

But now the sun is starting to rise again over Stefano Pioli's team.

And now Milan is on a streak of 3 clean wins with 1-0 each before this match.

Atalanta fell into a hole, allowing 3 losses in their last 4 matches.

As one of these losses, they were eliminated from the Coppa Italia tournament.

The good news for Pioli is that his team has important units returning from injuries.

In addition, the Rossoneri dominate the recent head-to-head matches against the Bergamas .

So my prediction here is: 1.

Milan is on the rise with the new scheme

Milan's problems seem to be behind them now.

As Stefano Pioli's tactical switch to three at the back has made the Rossoneri hard to beat of late.

Now the team is less aggressive going forward. But for the coach, the points are important, not the applause.

Milan is on a 3-game winning streak with 1-0

Another narrow 1-0 away win at Monza was achieved last weekend.

And it won't be a surprise if that result is repeated at the San Siro on Sunday.

After all, this isn't the easy-goal Atalanta of a few seasons ago.

Before the success over Monza, the Red and Blacks beat Torino and Tottenham with the same score.

Milan's infirmary is shrinking

The Rossoneri might be a bit tired from their busy schedule.

So this could speed up the return of a number of players from injury for this weekend. 

Hoylund started to score again

Atalanta may not score as many goals as before.

But Gian Piero Gasperini must be pleased that Rasmus Hoylund is doing so well.

He scored in the defeat to Lecce last week. As with the success against Lazio before that.

Now the Dane will try to make it difficult for Milan's defense as well.

Atalanta have lost 3 of their last 4 matches

The loss to Lecce was a perfect example of how difficult it has been for Atalanta to be consistent this year.

After the defeat at Sassuolo, La Dea managed to get a good win away to Lazio.

Only to lose to a conservative Lecce team.

Atalanta is 3 points away from the Top 4

Another defeat here will see the Bergamo side slip further away from the top four in the standings.

At least there is still a serious buffer between Atalanta and any other team chasing European places.

Which is mainly thanks to the points taken away from Juventus.

But Gasperini's side need to make a good run soon if they really want to fight for Champions League qualification.

News for both teams

Stefano Pioli will be delighted if he can get Mike Meignan back into Milan's starting line-up here.

The French guard will add even more stability to a defense that has looked much better of late.

Ismael Benasser could also return. But Zlatan Ibrahimovic may have to settle for an appearance from the bench.

Gian Piero Gasperini was not happy with the way his side played against Lecce last week.

However, the Atalanta coach is somewhat restricted in making many changes to his starting line-up.

He can bring in Luis Muriel instead of Jeremy Boga up front.

But he will definitely need to replace the suspended Merih Demiral at the back with Jose Luis Palomino.
