AC Milan Form and Team News
Four points are all Milan need to be crowned champions, and if they succeed, they will be every bit deserving of the title. The Rossoneri have been consistent this season and finally hit the 80-point mark for the first time since the 2011/2012 season after winning 3-1 at Verona. They are on a four-match winning run which has put them in the driving seat ahead of their last two games of the season.
Pioli’s team know they have to step up to pick up a decent result from this encounter, having failed to win at home to Atalanta since January 2014. They have lost thrice and drawn four times in that winless run, failing to score in five matches. They have several positives to inspire them, though, having failed to lose a match in the Serie A since January, and have recorded five consecutive clean sheets at home.
Simon Kjaer is still unavailable due to a knee injury, while Daniel Maldini may not feature after he picked up an injury recently.
Atalanta Form and Team News
Atalanta are yet to lose in their last four matches (two wins and two draws) and are locked in the race for a place in the Europa League/Europa Conference League with Lazio, AS Roma, and Fiorentina. They are level on points with AS Roma and Fiorentina, only three points behind Lazio, and will fancy a repeat of their 3-0 victory at the San Siro in January 2021.
They have scored three goals in each of their last two Serie A matches while averaging 4.5 goals per game in their four-match unbeaten run. However, they must step up defensively to achieve a favorable result at San Siro after keeping only one clean sheet in their last six away matches.
Bryan Cabezas, Giuseppe Pezzella, and Duvan Zapata are all injured and will not play a part in the visit to Milan. Josip Ilicic (illness) and Rafael Toloi may not also feature.
