by | May 11, 2022 15:46

These Milan vs. Atalanta predictions for the penultimate match of the season see the Rossoneri looking to preserve their Scudetto hopes. The visitors are in solid form, however, and will provide a stern test for the league leaders.

Milan vs. Atalanta odds

1 – Milan to win – 4/5

2 – Both teams to score – 9/16

3 – 1-1 draw – 7/1

4 – Over 2.5 goals scored – 11/20 

5 – Sandro Tonali to score anytime – 15/2

Milan welcome Atalanta to San Siro this weekend looking to retain pole position in the Serie A title race. Stefano Pioli’s side kick off a little under three hours before fellow Scudetto contenders Inter and a win would provide the perfect opportunity to pile the pressure onto their city rivals. 

Unfortunately for the Rossoneri, Sunday’s opponents are unlikely to roll over for their title bid. Atalanta appear to have eventually found some consistency in recent weeks and travel to San Siro unbeaten in their last four Serie A fixtures, despite a number of injury concerns. 

However, the hosts remain favourites to take three vital points, having shown fantastic mentality to come back from behind against a strong Verona side on Monday evening. Milan have shown time and time again this season that they are able to pull off wins when it matters most and Sunday should be no different. 

That is not to say that the arrival of La Dea will be easy for Pioli’s side. Recent encounters between the two clubs have seen the spoils shared relatively evenly, with two wins each and a draw in their last five meetings. As a result, a similarly close match can reasonably be expected on Sunday, with a bet on both teams to score likely to pay out. 

Despite Milan’s status as favourites, it would come as no surprise to see the match end in a draw, with 1-1 the most likely scoreline in this eventuality. A point against Atalanta would by no means end the Diavolo’s title hopes, but would mean they’d require a win away to Sassuolo in the final game of the season to secure the Scudetto. 

The match at San Siro should be a good one for the neutral, as in addition to the title connotations, the sides tend to provide high-scoring fixtures. Four of the last six meetings have finished with over 2.5 goals scored, with just one of Atalanta’s last seven matches seeing fewer than three goals. A wager on over 2.5 goals is likely to pay off on Sunday. 

Although the hosts boast the likes of Olivier Giroud, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Rafael Leao in attack, our final tip is for Sandro Tonali to get on the scoresheet for Milan. The midfielder has found his shooting boots at just the right moment, with three goals in his last three games.

Milan team news

Few changes are expected from Stefano Pioli ahead of Sunday’s match, with Simon Kjaer the only injury absentee. Rade Krunic put in a strong performance in an advanced midfield role last time out, so may feel hard done by should Brahim Diaz return in that position. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is also back to full fitness and may have a part to play, although is unlikely to start over Olivier Giroud. 

Atalanta team news

Injuries to Rafael Toloi and Giuseppe Pezzella could see Martin de Roon start in defence again, although Merih Demiral is likely to be drafted back in. Duvan Zapata missed last weekend’s win over Spezia and is in a race to return to fitness for the trip to Milan.
