Atalanta vs AC Milan Preview

Atalanta vs AC Milan

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Atleti Azzurri d’Italia

Date: 13th May 2018

Kick-off time – 17:00 GMT

Although the Italian league is almost coming to an end, some things are still being fought for and one of them is a place in Europe next season.

This game brings two teams who are fighting for a top six finish after AC Milan wasted the chance to get automatic access into Europe in midweek.

Milan fans were hopeful that their team would beat Juventus in the Italian Cup final in midweek, however, after putting up strong resistance, they fell 4-0 and will end this season with no trophy after their huge financial outlay in the summer.

However, they would be delighted if they can secure return to the Europa League by the end of this season.

Atalanta had a good run in the Europa League this season and their current standing on the league table – 7th could still get them to Europe, however, they would be keen to win here and get past AC Milan into 6th position.

Atalanta come into this game off the back of six unbeaten games, however, they have not beaten a side inside the top 9 at home this season and may fail to win here again.

Milan meanwhile, have just two wins from 12 meetings with teams inside the top 8, although they tend to lose only to the top five teams.

This game is extremely interesting on paper and one of the standout games of the weekend.
