Atalanta controlled 60% of the ball and had almost 20 shots but the team only managed to score once which wasn’t enough. It was an unfortunate result for Atalanta but the team will be confident in their ability to bounce back strongly in this fixture against AC Milan.

Looking at all the information, I am going to pick Atalanta to win this match.

I am expecting a close match but Atalanta should be good enough to get all 3 points.
