Atalanta is set to host Milan in round 24 of Italian Serie A.
Atalanta is playing great soccer this season and are in solid form at the moment and because of that are holding 5th spot in the Serie A standings with great chances to end up in a spot that will take them to Champions League next season. Atalanta has score 50 goals in 23 matches so far which is an average of more than 2 goals per game. Atalanta’s offense is great but their defense not as much and have conceded 31 goals so far. Zapata is Atlanta’s top goal scorer with 16 goals while Papu added 8 assists. Atalanta is on 8 game streak without a loss and the players are full of confidence. Atalanta likes to play with high possession in the midfield and are patient when they have the ball in possession and because of that are creating a lot of chances and producing a lot of shots.
Milan is finally getting in a good form and their newest signing Piatek can’t seem to stop scoring goals which is just what they needed to stay in the top 4. For a long time Milan was missing that creativity or that final pass when are in the possession of the ball but that is finally changing with Chalhanoglu getting in good form and as a result Milan in on a 5 game streak without a loss. Piatek is top striker in Milan and top 4 goal scorer in Seria A and has scored in every game since his arrival to Milan. Milan is holding 4th place in the standings with a home record of 7 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses. Zapata, Bonnaventura and Caldara are injured and will not play this game.
Head to head Atalanta has won only 8 games while Milan won19 and 12 ended in a draw dating back all the way back to 1993. When these 2 teams meet there is no lack of excitement and great soccer and because of the fact that both teams are playing great and are in a great form I will pick something on goals for this game.
