Reason for Atalanta vs AC Milan Predictions
Atalanta entered the weekend sitting in seventh place in Serie A with their record standing at three wins, two draws, and a defeat. It wasn’t the start fans had hoped for when making their pre-season predictions, but the 11 points gained is enough to keep them within touching distance of the leading pack. The home team is already seven points off the pace set by Napoli at this stage, meaning a title tilt is already unlikely but not impossible. Atalanta is just a point behind Roma and the top four, which is their main goal for the campaign. They want to secure a Champions League slot for next season. Taking three wins from their first six is impressive, and it’s even better when realizing two of those victories have come in their last three games. The home team headed into this match on a three-game winning run, and that turnaround in form would have done wonders for team morale. Marten de Roon has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Josip Ilicic is the engine of this team, and his greatest virtue is speed. He has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance.
AC Milan enters this match with a proud unbeaten record for the season that consists of five wins and one draw, agonizingly close to a perfect start. The 16 points gained leaves them two points behind Napoli after six matches, with the current leaders carrying a 100% record and looking like they could mount a serious challenge to the likes of Juventus and the two Milan teams. However, it remains to be seen how strong The Old Lady is this season. AC Milan will certainly expect to be in the running throughout, and they have a team that looks good enough to be champions come spring. The visitors make this trip, having won each of their last two games and four of their five most recent outings. They were held to a draw by Juventus away from home last month, with that match finishing 1-1. Alexis Saelemaekers finally shows the qualities he possesses, he has excellent technique, and he is unstoppable in a one-on-one game. Zlatan Ibrahimovic plays excellently, and with his experience, he helps young players. The fans adore this man, and Zlatan is unique.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw.
We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
