          AC Milan vs Atalanta Prediction & Betting Tips

          AC Milan welcome in-form Atalanta to the San Siro, as they look to recover from their last result and keep pace with the sides above them.

          Date: 25/02/24

          Kick-off time: 19:45

          Venue: San Siro

          Atalanta and AC Milan sit one place and seven points apart, with both occupying top four positions. Milan are third, two points behind second-place Juventus, whilst Atalanta are just behind. However, it is Atalanta who will be the more confident of the two sides heading into this game. They have won six games in a row in all competitions, scoring 19 and conceding three. The hosts, in contrast, come into this game after a surprising 4-2 defeat to Monza. A win against them would have put them into second, eight points behind leaders Inter.

          Whilst Atalanta’s defence is getting stronger every week, Milan’s is starting to falter. They have let in at least two goals in four of their last five games so the visitors will look to exploit that weakness. They will hope to do so with the likes of Teun Koopmeiners, Gianluca Scamacca and Charles De Ketelaere. Stefano Piolo will be able to call on the league’s third-highest scorer in Olivier Giroud to test a solid defence.

          Milan have played a combined 27 games in Serie A and the Coppa Italia, losing five games. Two of those defeats came at the hands of this weekend’s opponents, who will be hoping to make it three. The reverse fixture in the league was in December, and Atalanta were 3-2 winners in dramatic fashion. The deadlock was not broken until the 38th minute, as Ademola Lookman put the hosts in front. They were unable to take their lead into the break, with Olivier Giroud getting his side back on level terms. Lookman scored once more and Luka Jovic responded with 10 minutes to go. With the game headed for a draw, Davide Calabria picked up a second yellow in stoppage time. Atalanta took advantage of their extra man and scored the winning goal in the 95th minute. The two sides met again in the Coppa Italia, with Gian Piero Gasperini’s side prevailing again. Their 2-1 win saw them advance to the semi-finals of the competition.

          However, prior to this season, it has been the Rossoneri who have enjoyed the most success. In the last five meetings before this campaign, they have won four of them, with the other finishing in a draw. They also kept a clean sheet in three of those games.

          AC Milan Team News

          Fikayo Tomori is due to return by the end of this month, so his availability for this weekend is in question. Davide Calabria and Tommaso Pobega are also slated for an imminent return.

          Atalanta Team News

          Atalanta have a relatively clean injury list. Ademola Lookman is out with an ankle injury until early March, but Jose Luis Palomino could return by the end of this month.

          AC Milan

          In their last five games, AC Milan have won three, drawn one and lost one. Their one draw came at the beginning of this run as the points were shared with Bologna. They went behind to a Joshua Zirkzee goal after half an hour, but Ruben Loftus-Cheek levelled the score. The Englishman grabbed his and Milan’s second in the 83rd minute to put them in the lead. With the game set to end in victory for the Rossoneri, Riccardo Orsolini stepped up to convert a penalty in stoppage time to salvage a draw.

          Milan responded well to the late disappointment by beating Frosinone 3-2 away from home. An Olivier Giroud penalty put them in front early, but their hosts responded to go into the break level. Frosinone then went ahead with 25 minutes to go, however, goals from Matteo Gabbia and Luka Jovic put the game back in the visitors’ favour. They played a closely-fought game with Napoli the week after, but again they came out on top. Theo Hernandez scored in the 25th minute to give his side a slender victory. A return to Europa League action followed, in which they comfortably put three past French club Rennes with no reply. Loftus-Cheek bagged a brace, adding to Rafael Leao’s goal.

          They lost their first game in the league since December in their most recent outing, an away game at Monza. The mid-table side caused an upset winning 4-2, and their two quick goals before the break set them up for victory. However, Giroud got one back, before Christian Pulisic completed what they thought was a comeback in the 88th minute. They got the equaliser whilst playing with a man less, after Luka Jovic saw red shortly after the first goal. Monzo were not done, though, as Warren Bondo found the back of the net in the 90th minute. Lorenzo Colombo added another five minutes later for insurance.

          Atalanta

          In their last five games, Atalanta have been perfect, winning all of them and in convincing fashion. It started with a dominant 5-0 win over Frosinone in which they were up three after just 15 minutes. Davide Zappacosta and Emil Holm added two more in the closing stages. Another two goals and a clean sheet in the following game earned them a 2-0 win over Udinese, thanks to strikes from Aleksei Miranchuk and Gianluca Scamacca.

          A contest with Lazio ended just as comfortably, though they conceded their first goal in this run. Mario Pasalic put his side in front, before Charles De Ketelaere added a brace. Ciro Immobile converted a penalty late on, but it was nothing more than a consolation. They recorded another big win, this time on the road against Genoa. De Ketelaere bagged the opener, but this was cancelled out shortly into the second half. Teun Koopmeiners quickly restored Atalanta’s lead, one they would not relinquish. They scored two more in the 10th and 13th minutes of stoppage time to ensure the win.

          Their most recent outing was a 3-0 home win over struggling Sassuolo. They edged the possession, but absolutely dominated in shot attempts. Pasalic, Koopmeiners and Mitchel Bakker were the three goalscorers.
