Ace Football previews the Serie A match between Atalanta and AC Milan and offers betting tips, odds, and stats.
With both sides chasing a place inside the top 4, important points are at stake as Atalanta take on AC Milan for their season finale in Serie A.
La Dea currently hold a two-point advantage over their third-placed opponents in second place in the table. The home side has amassed 78 points after 37 matches and avoiding defeat on Sunday will guarantee their top 4 spot. That said, AC Milan would love to knock them off their perch and nick the runners-up spot behind champions Inter.
Atalanta mean business.
Atalanta go into this encounter high on confidence following 4 wins from their last 6 games. In their last 3 matches, Gian Piero Gasperini’s side earned a 2-0 win over Benevento, followed by a rousing 4-3 win against Genoa. Their most recent match brought a 2-1 defeat against Juventus.
La Dea have been enjoying a strong run of home form recently with 5 wins in the last 6 games since March, and the focus is fixed on adding another win to their account.
AC Milan in nice flow.
One can’t really point a finger at the results for AC Milan in past weeks as they have performed according to their level. In their previous 3 matches, the Rossoneri demolished Juventus in a 3-0 win and went on to a 7-0 win against Torino. Their latest match served up a dull 0-0 draw at Cagliari.
It is a little surprising to see Stefano Pioli’s men placed as the underdog here considering their formidable 4 wins in the last 6 away matches since March.
