Highly-anticipated encounter on the cards
Sandro Tonali was, once again, the hero of the day for Milan's last time out as the deep-lying Italian midfielder popped up with a brace in a 3-1 victory away at Hellas Verona. This would be their fourth consecutive victory in the league and Stefano Pioli’s troops haven’t lost in the league since losing to Spezia back in January. As such, they still lead the way in the Italian Serie A but with just two points being the difference between them and their local rivals Internazionale and Sassuolo set to come after Atalanta this weekend, things are far from done in the Italian top-flight.
It hasn’t been a season to remember for the Atalanta faithful and it could very much end with them not qualifying for Europe next season. They head into this game in 8th position in the Italian Serie A but they’re level on points with Roma and Fiorentina who occupy 6th and 7th position respectively. Gasperini and his troops who have been known to be away day specialists were on top of their game against Spezia last weekend as they ran out 3-1 winners. Now with the third-best away record in the league- only Milan and Inter with better returns-, Le Dea would surely be looking to spoil the Milan party and in the same vein, secure a spot in Europe for next season.

Milan vs Atalanta Prediction: 2-1
Atalanta head to the San Siro unbeaten in their last four league games and they would surely be looking to keep hold of this unbeaten run after 90 minutes in Milan. However, the hosts have been on a roll and given that they're only two wins away from their first Scudetto in over 10 years, we don’t think they drop points this weekend.
