Team News

  • Colantuono may switch to a 4-3-1-2 with Bonaventura as the trequartista, leaving Maxi Moralez on the bench.
  • Denis' partner will be Parra, since Budan just joined the team and may need a little time to adapt.
  • Cigarini will be the playmaker in a dynamic midfield trio.
  • Milan are working in the transfer market to sell Abate to Zenit and swap Mesbah with Parma's Zaccardo.
  • The 2006 World Champion will probably not be able to join the Rossoneri before the match in Bergamo, though.
  • Niang should be given another chance from the start on the right side of the attack.

Prediction

  • Atalanta have only picked up 2 points in their last 5 matches, and Colantuono is trying to experiment new solutions to stop the rot, with no result yet.
  • Milan are closer to the Europa League spots now, and Napoli's trip to Parma could mean a chance to gain some more points on the third placed team as well.
  • Colantuono is likely to field a balanced team to wait for Milan and counter-attack. The Rossoneri struggled to score away from home against Sampdoria, so the coach of the Bergamasca may get some inspiration from the Blucerchiati. El Shaarawy has failed to score in four consecutive league matches for the first time this season, so the home defence will have to guard him closely.
