Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Milan?
Milan is not playing their best game, but they are getting results. They come from beating Torino and Monza, as well as Tottenham for the Champions League, all 1-0 and with a goal from someone else. Thus they managed to cut a streak of 4 straight losses and 7 games without victory.
The Rossoneros is fourth with 44 points, the same as Roma, third, and 3 points behind Inter, second, while Lazio (42) and Atalanta (41) are below. 5 teams fighting to go to the 3 European competitions next season.
One of the good news for Stefano Pioli is that goalkeeper Mike Maignan could return this weekend after training with the rest of the team. The Frenchman has been injured for more than 5 months and his substitute, Ciprian Tatarusanu, has been heavily criticized. In addition, in this match, they will release a new shirt.
Why Bet on Atalanta?
Atalanta suffered a major setback last weekend when they lost at home to Lecce (1-2), thus dropping to sixth place. In addition, they have only managed 3 points out of the last 9, something that their rivals took advantage of.
Their striker Ademola Lookman, who was having a great 2023 scoring 7 goals in 4 games, now goes 4 matches without scoring, so he hopes to recover as his team needs it. Those from Bergamo have 42 goals and are the third team that scores the most, only behind Napoli (56) and Inter (44), first and second, respectively.
As visitors, Atalanta has been a very good team this season in Serie A, achieving 7 wins, 3 draws, and only 2 losses.
