MATCH PREVIEW

It is a battle royale for Europa League (SL) qualification, as chasers Atalanta (seventh) play host to a bruised AC Milan (sixth), hoping to get one over their direct rival.
Atalanta have form aiding their charge, with an unbeaten six-game run (W3, D3) coming into this crucial fixture. They start this round just one point behind their visitors and will hope to leapfrog them with a win. Anything less than a win and they will be left praying for some help in the final round.
They remain unbeaten in three home fixtures with two wins on the trot highlighting their form. Only five teams have scored more than Atalanta’s 32 home points, and it is fair to say that they have had a balanced season thus far.
That’s completely tangential to what Milan went through this season. After threatening Champions League qualification spots at one time, the visitors are now barely hanging to their European fortunes. A midweek thrashing in the Coppa Italia final hasn’t helped and their confidence could have been dented.
A look at Milan’s travels tells us that they have lost only once in their last nine trips (W5, D3, L1), that too at Juventus. That is an incredible run, but the worry that they may have lost steam in their campaign is a burden they carry on this trip.
Players to watch: Bryan Cristante is powering Atalanta along, with a goal and two assists in his last four games.
After an excellent start, Suso’s (MIL) season has tailed off. With two assists in his last league game, he may have just rediscovered his mojo.
Stat attack: Milan have not defeated Atalanta since 2015, a run of five games (W2, D3).
Atalanta have the league’s fifth-best ‘home’ defence, while Milan are the fourth-best attacking side in away games.
