AC Milan v Atalanta: Tips, Predictions and Odds

Milan have seen their title hopes fade, but they’re on course to wrap up third place in Serie A while still competing to win the Europa League.

However, Atalanta are in fantastic form and they’re chasing down Milan, having already eliminated them from the Coppa Italia this term. Can they claim a third win over the Rossoneri this season?

AC Milan v Atalanta betting tips and predictions

Atalanta to win - 19/10

Atalanta were knocked out of the top four on Friday night thanks to Bologna’s win, but they don’t need to sweat too much over their spot in the Champions League next term. Not only can they return to the top four with a win on Sunday, but Italian clubs thriving in Europe means Serie A is set to have five teams in next season’s Champions League.

Atalanta will still be chasing a victory here, especially as they can cut the gap to Milan to just four points with a win. La Dea have also played at least one game fewer than those around them, while they head into this contest having won six straight games.

Milan have suffered two defeats in the last week, conceding seven times in losses to Monza and Rennes. While the Rossoneri return home, that advantage may not be enough to stop Gian Piero Gasperini’s team.

On top of that, they’ve already been beaten twice by Atalanta this season. La Dea won the home league meeting before knocking Milan out of the cup in San Siro, so back the in-form hosts to add to a run of eight wins from nine.

Teun Koopmeiners to score anytime - 4/1

Koopmeiners has been key to Atalanta’s great recent form, with the attacking midfielder scoring in each of his last five appearances for Atalanta. He’s thriving playing as the 10 in behind a mobile front two, which is giving the Dutchman plenty of opportunities.

The Dutchman scored twice when these two met here in the Coppa Italia and with six strikes across his last five outings, Koopmeiners stands out as a great goalscorer option on Sunday night.

While he has been moved around the starting lineup this season, Koopmeiners has thrived as a number 10, scoring seven of his nine goals this term from that position. He is able to occupy a central attacking role with the likes of Aleksy Miranchuk and former Milan playmaker Charles De Ketalaere peeling wide despite starting as the two strikers.

Despite some fine form, Koopmeiners is a 4/1 shot to score anytime against the Rossoneri. However, four of his seven Serie A goals this term have been the opening strike of the game, so also consider him in the First Goalscorer market at 11/1.

Atalanta to win 3-2 - 28/1

These two sides are in great form and that could turn this into an end-to-end game on Sunday. Atalanta aren’t quite the buccaneering side that surged into the latter stages of the Champions League in 2020, but they remain impressive going forward.

Milan have averaged 1.75 goals per home game this term so they’ve proven themselves going forward, while the Rossoneri have been involved in some high-scoring defeats across recent days. The Rossoneri had any slim title hopes essentially wiped out in their 4-2 loss to Monza last time out.

In midweek, Milan struggled in the Play-off round of the Europa League, losing 3-2 at Rennes and making it through on aggregate. Defensive issues clearly remain for the Rossoneri, something which la Dea can exploit this weekend.

Atalanta’s only away clean sheets in Serie A have come against the bottom five, so the visitors to win and concede is worth considering at 9/2. However, a repeat of the scoreline when these two met in Bergamo stands out the most, with a 3-2 win for the visitors priced at 28/1.

With Milan scoring twice in defeats twice already this week, back Atalanta to continue their winning streak by besting another five-goal thriller.
