- AC Milan v Atalanta (Over/Under - Over 2.5)
- AC Milan v Atalanta (Both Teams To Score - Yes)
- AC Milan v Atalanta (Anytime Goalscorer - Ibrahimovic, Z)
Serie A leaders AC Milan host Atalanta on Saturday at San Siro. The Rossoneri are on a two-match winning streak in the league and aim to push that good run to three games. Since losing to Juventus in Serie A, AC Milan have been excellent picking up wins versus Torino and Cagliari, winning to nil in each of those games.
Atalanta head into the fixture fresh off of a 1-1 draw with Udinese in midweek. La Dea conceded a first-minute goal but got back on level terms through leading scorer Luis Muriel just before halftime. The two sides couldn’t find the back of the net in the second half.
The draw moved Atalanta into fifth place in the league on 33 points. They are above Juventus in the race for Champions League qualification places. La Dea are unbeaten in six straight matches in Serie A with their last two matches ended in back-to-back draws. Atalanta are 10 points off of first-place AC Milan. The title is out of reach for them but qualifying for the top four is not.
AC Milan are three points ahead of Inter Milan in the race for the title. They will hope to keep that gap the same this weekend. Inter Milan play Udinese at the weekend away in Udine.
AC Milan vs Atalanta Betting Odds
AC Milan are atop of the Serie A form table going into the weekend. The Rossoneri have taken 15 points from their last 18 on offer. AC Milan scored 12 goals while conceding six goals to opponents during that same timeframe. Atalanta took 12 points from their last 18 possible. La Dea scored 15 goals while conceding five during that six-match run.
The Rossoneri are at odds of 19/10 to snatch a win at the weekend at San Siro. They failed to defeat Atalanta in two matches last season in Serie A, drawing at San Siro and losing in Bergamo. Atalanta thrashed AC Milan 5-0 in Bergamo while the two clubs drew 1-1 in Milan.
Stefano Pioli’s team have posted a record of 5W-3D-1L at San Siro this season. That loss came against Juventus, 3-1. Atalanta go into Saturday’s clash at odds of 27/20 according to leading sportsbooks. Atalanta are unbeaten in 12 of their last 16 matches versus AC Milan in all competitions. They posted a record of 6W-6D-4L during those 16 matches.
The clubs are at odds of 3/1 to finish Saturday’s game in a draw. Atalanta’s last two Serie A matches both finished in stalemates.
AC Milan vs Atalanta Team News
Pioli has a long list of players that could miss the match on Saturday. Alexis Saelemaekers and Alessio Romagoli are both ruled out of the fixture due to red card suspensions. Four players are doubts due to positive COVID-19 tests. Theo Hernandez, Hakan Calhanoglu, Rade Krunic, and Ante Rebic are all suffering/recovering from COVID-19. All four are doubts for the match. Pioli could have Matteo Gabbia and Ismael Bennacer back from their respective injuries. Both players are due back soon.
AC Milan signed free agent Mario Mandzukic this week to add firepower to the side. Zlatan Ibrahimovic will partner Mandzukic at some point, but Pioli could start the Swede by himself in attack. Ibrahimovic is coming off of a two-goal game against Cagliari and is in form. He had missed several games due to injury, but now back in the squad, has picked up where he left off.
Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini has just two players on his injury list ahead of the weekend. Duvan Zapata was expected to miss time until March due to an Achilles tendon problem. However, Zapata came off the bench in midweek and could start after getting match fitness under his belt. Zapata is Atalanta’s second-leading scorer with seven goals. Fellow striker Muriel has scored 11 times in Serie A to lead the team. Mario Pasalic could miss the game due to a lingering injury issue.
AC Milan vs Atalanta Prediction
Both teams to score: YES @ 9/17 - BET NOW
Eight of the last 13 matches between AC Milan and Atalanta finished with both teams finding the back of the net. With the firepower both clubs have in attack, they should both get on the scoresheet. Three of AC Milan’s last six matches in Serie A finished with both teams scoring. Against the league’s weaker sides, they are keeping clean sheets. However, against the top of the table clubs, Milan are conceding goals. That should occur this weekend at San Siro.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score anytime @ 23/20 - BET NOW
Ibrahimovic maybe 39, but he is still one of the world’s best strikers. Ibrahimovic goes into the match on Saturday night following a two-goal performance versus Cagliari. The Swede has tallied 12 goals in eight Serie A matches. He has 13 goals in 13 games in all competitions. Against Cagliari, Ibrahimovic played his first full 90-minute match following a calf injury that kept him out for eight league games. The Rossoneri are good, but Ibrahimovic makes them great.
Over 2.5 goals scored @ 29/50 - BET NOW
Seven of the last 14 matches between these clubs finished with over 2.5 goals scored. They bring out the goalscoring best in each other when playing. Atalanta thrashed AC Milan last season in Bergamo 5-0. It is a scoreline that is unlikely to happen again. However, La Dea will be difficult to defeat. So far, AC Milan have played well throughout the campaign to reach top spot in Serie A. They must keep winning to keep Inter Milan at arm’s length.
Juventus are pretty much out of the title race with 10 points between them and AC Milan. Serie A is a two-horse race between the Milan clubs at the moment. Inter Milan are just three points behind their San Siro rival. Atalanta are focused on finishing in the Champions League places for a third straight campaign. They are one point off of both third-placed Napoli and fourth-placed Roma.
On paper, AC Milan should continue their great form with a hard-fought win. However, Atalanta have a record of 6W-6D-4L in their last 16 games versus AC Milan. They could take points off of the Rossoneri.
