Atalanta vs AC Milan
Italy Serie A,
Date: Sunday, 3 October 2021
Kick-off 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Gewiss Stadium.
Atalanta and Milan will take on each other in the last Serie A fixture of the weekend at Gewiss Stadium.
Atalanta host Milan in the last Serie A kick off before the international break. The teams will enter the game in opposite moods following the scores they got in mid-week’s Champions League affairs.
Atalanta struggled to break the deadlock against Swiss champions Young Boys but eventually managed to unlock their defense midway through the second half as Matteo Pessina made the difference in a 1-0 victory.
Milan, on the other side, had a 1-0 lead over Atletico Madrid all up until the 84th minute. However, they conceded two late goals to eventually lose 1-2 despite offering a super strong resistance with ten men on the pitch from the 29th minute.
In terms of their Serie A prospects, Milan got off to a betters tart, picking up five wins and a draw in the opening six rounds.
Stefano Pioli can generally be pleased with the performances his men have been putting up since the start of the season despite significant problems with injuries (Zlatan Ibrahimovic only made one appearance, Olivier Giroud has just come back from injury, etc.)
Nonetheles, Milan are well in danger of suffering their maiden loss of the season here against La Dea who seem to have caught the right rhythm with three wins and two draws in the last five outings across competitions.
Atalanta vs AC Milan Head-to-head
- We’ve seen away wins in the head to head encounters between these two teams in the previous term of the Serie A.
- In general, the outfits have two wins apiece and a draw in their last five H2H matches.
- Just one of the last four H2H meetings between the two teams saw goals scored at both ends.
Atalanta vs AC Milan Prediction
Although it is never a smart idea to back a low-scoring tie in Atalanta’s games, we just feel this might be such an affair. After all, we have the clash between two teams with a strong defensive record this season (Atalanta shipped 6 goals in 6 games, Milan allowed 3 goals in 6 matches).
Knowing also that only one of the last four head to head outings provided goals at both ends, we’ll shoot with the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the 2.20 odds. The braver tipsters can try with the draw at super attractive 3.75 odds.
