Atalanta vs AC Milan: prediction for the Serie A fixture
Atalanta started the season poorly. Gianpiero Gasperini's men kicked off with a tough win against Torino (2:1), but in the next two matches they managed to earn only one point. After a 1:2 defeat from Fiorentina in the second round, Atalanta recorded a goalless draw with Bologna at home. In the first round of the Champions League, Atalanta drew with Villarreal in Spain (2:2).
In the last three rounds of Serie A, Atalanta scored seven points against Salernita (1:0), Sassuolo (2:1), and Inter Milan (2:2). They are currently 7th in the standings. Earlier in the week, Atalanta played a tough game against Young Boys in the Champions League. The Italian team won with a score of 1:0. The Colombian forward Luis Muriel has made a full recovery from his injury and appeared against Young Boys.
AC Milan started the new season quite smoothly. Stefano Pioli's team is currently on the second line in the Serie A table with 16 points after six rounds. The Rossoneri are just two points behind Napoli, and Inter are right behind AC Milan with 14 points.
In the last round of Serie A, AC Milan defeated Spezia 2:1 away from home. The Rossoneri were saving energy for the Champions League game against Atletico. Rafael Leão opened the scoring for AC Milan, but when Franck Kessie was sent off in the first half, Atletico used that to their advantage and won with a score of 2:1.
This score was recorded in the last 2 games of AC Milan.
In 2 of their last 3 games, Atalanta scored in the first half.
In the last 2 away games of AC Milan, this bet played.
Atalanta have improved the quality of their football. They haven't hit optimal form yet, but the progress in the last rounds was obvious. AC Milan look solid in Serie A, but the Rossoneri make mistakes in defense on a regular basis. Atalanta can make use of these mistakes, just like they did in the game against Inter Milan.
We believe the hosts have a better chance of winning here. Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) to Atalanta
Prediction: Handicap (0) to Atalanta

Atalanta can count on Luis Muriel today, who already appeared on the field against the Young Boys earlier this week. Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata have worked perfectly together for the last few seasons and regularly managed to earn points for Atalanta. AC Milan will definitely put up a fight, so we don't expect Atalanta to win by a large margin.
Our second bet - Atalanta to win by 1 goal
