The derby of the Serie A Gameweek 2 is in Bergamo, where Atalanta meets with the reigning champions, AC Milan. Both teams started the season well with a win and would like to keep it that way.

Atalanta vs. Milan Preview

Atalanta

La Dea was better than Sampdoria in Genoa, winning 0-2 and taking three points. They weren’t dominant as they usually are, but rational and effective. Three shots on target resulted in two goals for the guests in that one, and we can say that Gasperini’s unit did its part of the job perfectly. 

Atalanta didn’t play too many friendly games during the summer, only three winning one and losing two, but that can’t be the measure of their power. Unlike in the past, we haven’t seen many goals, but as said, Gasperini wasn’t very keen on playing with 100% in those events. 

The problem for him is constant injuries, as several of his starters deal with various injuries, among them Zapacosta, Cabezas, the newcomer Demiral and Ederson. Meanwhile, Palomino is suspended due to a failed doping test.

AC Milan

Milan had a good game at home against Udinese in the opening round, winning 4-2. Ante Rebic, with a brace, Theo Hernandez and Brahim Diaz scored for the hosts, who allowed two goals inside the opening 45 minutes.

Though, they regrouped and went out to dominate and seize control over the field in the remaining part of the event. Rossoneri won four straight counting in the preseason games. They ended the preparation period with wins over Marseille, 0-2, Wolfsberger, 0-5, and Vicenza, 1-6. 

Rossoneri had a quiet transfer window. They lost Kessie, Romagnoli, and Florenzi but added one of the biggest Belgian talents, Charles de Ketelaere, who will be a perfect addition to their midfield. Also, Divock Origi is expected to have an impact.

Atalanta vs Milan Possible Lineups

Atalanta BC: Musso; Toloi, Okoli, De Roon; Hateboer, Koopmeiners, Scalvini, Maehle; Malinovskyi; Muriel, Zapata

AC Milan: Maignan; Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Hernandez; Bennacer, Krunic; Messias, Diaz, Leao; Giroud

Atalanta vs Milan Head to Head

Milan was better on both occasions last year, winning 2-3 at Gewiss and 2-0 at home. 

Atalanta vs Milan Prediction

Atalanta and Milan usually deliver an interesting affair with plenty of action in front of both goals. We expect the same on Sunday night, particularly because Atalanta wants to impose its own tempo at home and try to win. The best pick here would be over 2.5 goals. The odds are respective while, on the other hand, the risk isn’t high at all.

Our verdict: Over 2.5 goals
