Milan is the leader of Serie A!
The situation around Milan is very curious. Just before the 19th round of the championship, which is his environment, they are leaders in the standings with a 3-point lead at Inter.
The goal in this match is “not to get lost”. It seems ridiculous at first glance to assume such a goal for a team with 13 wins in 18 matches played. And in a home game.
Milan, however, are in a severe personnel crisis. And this fact has not escaped the bookmaker. Judge for yourself. Captain Romagnoli has been punished. Alexis Salemakers too. Ismael Benaser, Mateo Gabia, Simon Kjaer and Chalhanoglu are injured.
However, several players returned to the squad after isolation due to covid-19.
Atalanta is ultra offensive!
Atalanta are in 6th place in Serie A. And the goal in front of them is again a place in the Euro tournaments. They are 10 points behind Milan.
Now everyone who is interested in football knows that Atalanta is an attractive and ultra offensive team. Who uses at least 6 players in the attack phase. And their effectiveness is so great that not only more than 3 goals in their matches are common.
But for long periods they are also the most productive team in the top 5 European championships. The big absentee for this match will be Papu Gomez.
Forecast for Milan – Atalanta
The most common sign in the meetings between these teams in their last 10 clashes is a draw – 6 times. And Milan have won only once in the same period. Two highly offensive teams meet here. And the most normal thing is to expect goals. In such meetings, in principle, it is difficult and rare to draw.
However, I cannot choose a winner. Because I would never bet on a team that goes out without its captain. In addition to this huge problem for Milan, they are also the team “under pressure”. Who has much more to lose. This is the second important point. Which definitely stops me from betting on the Rossoneri to win.
Of the two remaining exits, I decided to choose the one that has happened most often lately. Luckily for me, it turns out to be the best in terms of price (coefficient). I do not claim value. Therefore, I add a draw to the expected goals from both teams in this match. From medium to small bet size.
