Our football match prediction:
Milan will be looking to record their seventh home win of the season when they welcome Atalanta at their Stadio San Siro on Saturday afternoon. The Rossoneri aim to keep their hopes of winning Scudetto alive and we predict that the hosts will go all-out attack in Saturday’s football match against the Orobici. Coach Vincenzo Montella has some injury worries ahead of the game, but we are tempted to put our money on the Rossoneri, who have been producing splendid displays at home this season. Atalanta suffered back-to-back defeats to the likes of Juventus and Udinese in previous two league fixtures, meaning that they are low on confidence ahead of the trip to Milano. When the two teams met in Serie A earlier in 2016 Atalanta recorded a 2-1 over Milan, meaning that Vincenzo Montella’s are hungry for revenge. Gianluca Lapadula has been in a fine form of late and he is likely to lead the line for the hosts.
