Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Milan and Atalanta face each other at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Saturday’s program. The Rossoneri suffered an embarrassing 3-0 loss to Hellas Verona in their last league fixture and, no doubt, they want to give fans some cheer ahead of the Christmas Eve. Genaro Gattuso’s men are eager to book their place in European competitions, but they face an uphill task in the football match against Atalanta. The Orobici produced a thrilling display in a 3-3 draw with Lazio at the weekend and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Josip Ilicic scored a brace in the 3-3 draw with the Biancocelesti and all eyes will be on him when Atalanta face Milan on Matchday 18. A lively contest is on the cards and we predict both teams will find the net in the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza clash.
