Our prediction for this Serie A match:
All eyes will be on Stadio Giuseppe Meazza when Milan and Atalanta square off against each other in the Serie A derby. The Rossoneri are eyeing their third consecutive win in the national championship as they defeated both Torino and Cagliari in the previous two league fixtures. Even though Stefano Pioli has a number of selection worries ahead of the visit of Atalanta, we predict that the hosts will find the net in Saturday’s showdown.
Both Romagnoli and Saelemakers are banned for the match, while Rebic, Hernandez, Calhanoglu, Krunic, and Gabbia are sidelined with injuries. The Orobici are eager to regain their spot in top four, and given their attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Pasalic is out of contention through injury, but there are no suspended players in the away team ahead of the Milan clash. Papu Gomez has been left out of the squad.
Highlighted Player (Hakan Calhanoglu):
Hakan Calhanoglu is another one in the long line of Turkish footballers who were born in Germany, so it is hardly surprising he came to prominence thanks to his performances in Bundesliga. The attacking midfielder with great vision and very good goalscoring record started his professional career at Karlsruher, scoring impressive 17 goals in 50 league outings to earn a move to Bundesliga side Hamburg.
The spell at Imtech Arena was merely a stepping stone for bigger things as 11 goals in his debut top flight campaign persuaded Bayer Leverkusen to splash nearly €15 million on his services. That proved a very good investment as Calhanoglu continued the rich vein of form, and it is now a matter of time before he joins one of European powerhouses.
The midfield maestro had a bright start to his career in the Turkey national team, scoring 5 goals in first 16 caps, and chances are he will become a leader for Milli Takim in the foreseeable future.
Highlighted Team (Atalanta):
