Title defenders AC Milan will face its first real test in the Italian Serie A 2022-23 season, as it travels to the Gewiss Stadium this Sunday, to face Atalanta.
AC Milan was locked in a fierce Championship battle with local rivals Inter in the previous season. Stefano Pioli's side registered 6 consecutive victories towards the end and trumped Inter by 2 points to pick up its first Scudetto in more than a decade. The club has seen quite a few departures since then, such as Jens Petter Hauge, Leo Duarte, and Frank Tsadjout.
The management has brought in some teeth to the attack in the form of Charles De Ketelaere and Junior Messias, both of whom are expected to enhance the goal-scoring abilities of the Rossoneri. AC Milan survived a minor scare in the opener against Udinese, where the latter came back from a 2-goal deficit to level the scores at half-time. However, a second goal from Diaz and a second goal from Rebic ensured AC Milan sailed through with maximum points.
After ending up in the top 4 for 3 consecutive seasons, Atalanta fans will be disappointed with an 8th-place finish for the club in the last season. Much of that debacle can be attributed to the fact that Atalanta was winless in its final 6 home games of the season and winning just 2 of its last 9 matches overall. However, Gian Piero Gasperini’s team seems to have put those losses behind, as the club had a winning start to the season.
Rafael Toloi and debutant Ademola Lookman scored one goal each to give Atalanta an easy 2-0 win against Sampdoria. With no European engagements in the current season, Atalanta has a great chance of making a comeback at the top of the table in the domestic league.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Atalanta BC vs AC Milan Serie A 2022-23. The match is going to be played at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia, Bergamo, on 21st August 2022.
Milan fans will be happy to know that Sandro Tonali, who missed the opener against Udinese, is back in training, and will most likely be seen on the field on Sunday. Zlatan Ibrahimović is out of action until next year due to surgery. Ante Rebic is likely to feature in the starting eleven after his brace last weekend.
As for the hosts, Merih Demiral, Davide Zappacosta, Ederson, and Jose Luis Palomino are likely to sit out. Recent signing Brandon Soppy is likely to feature in a 3-4-1-2 formation for Gasperini.
Atalanta will be desperate to put up a better performance in front of its home crowd and are likely to put up a good fight. However, they are unlikely to collect any points here.
Bet on AC Milan to win.
4 of the last 6 matches for AC Milan have seen goals scored at both ends of the pitch, while 4 of the last 5 games for Atalanta have seen a similar outcome as well. The last time that both the teams played at the Gewiss Stadium, we were entertained by the strikers on both sides. We are therefore backing both the teams to score at least once here.
4 of the last 6 top-flight matches for AC Milan have produced more than 3 goals in them. Also, 5 of the last 8 head-to-head clashes between the two clubs have seen a score higher than 2.5, adding weight to our recommendation.
