Milan – Atalanta
Two of the teams in the best shape in the Serie A will have a meeting on Friday. AC Milan hosts Atalanta at the San Siro and we expect a terrific game between them. This is a match from the 36th round of the Italian league. Let’s preview it.
Milan deserve only compliments for their performance since the Serie A action started again. The Rossoneri made a great run of positive results which allowed them to climb to 5th place in the standings. Because of the team’s amazing form the manager Stefano Pioli recieved a new contract with the club. He will manage Milan the next season as well.
Milan are currently 5th in the Serie A standings with 59 points and they are one point ahead of the 6th Roma. Here’s the moment to remind that Roma are still with a game in hand, though. The Rossoneri are impressive when we talk about their current form – four wins from the last five matches speaks enough for them.
In their last game Milan visited Sassuolo and enjoyed a 2-1 win at the MAPEI Stadium. Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the big hero of the night, scoring twice for the Rossoneri.
Now Milan are getting ready for a tough test. Atalanta are the team with the best attack in the Serie A having scored 95 goals so far. They are second in the league only behind the champion Juventus.
If they manage to reach the 100 goals landmark in the Serie A Atalanta will make a historical season in the league. Gian Piero Gasperini managed to build an impressive team. It looks like Atalanta are getting better with each season under Gasperini.
We can make the conclusion that Milan and Atalanta are up for a great game at the San Siro. The Rossoneri have some injury problems in their defense though, so against the best attack in the Serie A it could get difficult for them.
