Atalanta vs AC Milan
Italian Serie A
Date: 21 August 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Gewiss Stadium (Bergamo).
AC Milan began their title defense quest in the best possible fashion. They bagged four goals in an easy home win over Udinese last weekend.
We’ve seen some hiccups, namely in the team’s back line, as I Rossoneri shipped two goals in the first half of the affair, but eventually it all turned out to be just as the fans love.
It was an attacking AC Milan side with strong ball movement high tempo throughout the entire course of the game.
Ante Rebic is particularly worth mentioning as the Croatian winger bagged two goals in the mentioned victory.
Stefano Pioli’s men will now face a much tougher challenge (the first serious test of the season) on Sunday evening when they travel to neighboring Bergamo to battle Atalanta in the second round of the campaign.
Atalanta also got off to a victorious start thanks to a stellar showing against Sampodoria away at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.
Gianpiero Gasperini has plenty of reasons to be satisfied with his men’s performance on the occasion.
Atalanta lost some important players in between the two seasons, such as Josip Ilicic and Remop Freuler (among others), but they still possess plenty of quality to hurt any rival in this league on their day. Will it be the case on Sunday against the reigning champions?

- AC Milan will enter this match full of confidence after winning three games in a row against Atalanta.
- I Rossoneri scored at least two goals in each of these three victories.
