Atalanta Prediction – Can Atalanta consolidate Euro spot?

Sunday’s hosts, Atalanta, currently occupy 6th place in Serie A and will no doubt be looking forward to returning to their more familiar surroundings of their Gewiss Stadium following defeat last time out in the Italian top flight in last weekend’s 2-1 loss away from home at Bologna.

Atalanta had previously recorded back-to-back wins against Brescia 3-0 away and a 3-2 home win against Hellas Verona which has helped lift the hosts up into early European reckoning for next season, but they’ll be keen to improve upon an indifferent home record which stands at 3-1-3 18/14 against AC Milan.

Inconsistent results have held Atalanta back somewhat so far this season with one end of the spectrum seeing the hosts register a convincing 7-1 win over Udinese only to suffer subsequent back-to-back defeats to Cagliari and Juventus.

With form and results going up and down, the goals market looks good here as 6 of Atalanta’s 7 home matches to date in this season’s Serie A has seen both teams score, while forwards Muriel (9 goals) and Zapata (6 goals) look the most likely for the hosts.

AC Milan Prediction – Can AC Milan continue resurgence?

9th placed AC Milan have steadied the ship in recent weeks after losing 6 of their previous 9 matches in the Italian top flight as they bring a decent 4-match sequence without defeat into this Sunday clash away at Atalanta.

Wins against Parma 1-0 away and a 3-2 win on the road at Bologna have been welcome wins for Stefano Pioli’s side along with picking up valuable points in draws with Napoli and Sassuolo, and this recent upturn in form has lifted AC Milan up into 9th spot but they’re still 7 points adrift of their hosts, Atalanta.

The visitors know that all three points here would reduce the points deficit almost in half, and having won 3 of their last 5 matches on the road in Serie A, AC Milan stand a decent chance of taking something from this encounter.

An away record of 4-0-4 9/9 includes wins at Hellas Verona, Genoa, Parma and Bologna but is also inconsistent but 4 of their 8 matches have resulted in both teams scoring and worth a dabble on the goals market here.

 

Key-Facts – Atalanta vs AC Milan

  • 6 of Atalanta’s 7 home matches have seen both teams score in Serie A
  • 4 of AC Milan’s 8 matches have resulted in both teams scoring
  • 4 of the last 5 meetings between these two teams have seen both teams score

 

Betting Tips Verdict

Both Atalanta and AC Milan have produced inconsistent results of late and both should score as a result here.
