On Sunday, October 3, in Bergamo, at the Atleti Azzurri d’Italia stadium, Atalanta and Milan will meet in the framework of the seventh round of the Italian Championship.
Football club “Atalanta”
Atalanta started this season in Serie A with an away win over Torino (2: 1). The hosts in this match had more possession of the ball and shot on goal, but this did not prevent the team from Bergamo from achieving a positive result. They snatched victory in 93 minutes thanks to a goal from Piccoli.
In the next five rounds, there were two draws, two wins and one defeat. And as a result, the current seventh line in the table, seven points behind the leader. In the last of the Serie A games, an important point was scored in the away game with Inter (2: 2). Leading in the course of the meeting (2: 1), at the 71st minute the hosts leveled the score, and at the 86th minute they could have taken the lead at all, but did not convert the penalty.
Football club “Milan”
Milan kicked off briskly this season. For six games played in Serie A, five wins were obtained, with one draw. Thanks to this, the Milanese are on the second line, two points behind Napoli.
The season began with three victories over Sampdoria, Cagliari and Lazio with an aggregate score (7: 1). After that, away a point was earned in the game with Juventus (1: 1), where in the end of the game Rebich equalized the score. And the final two games were victorious again (with “Venice” and “Spice”).
In the Champions League, the Milanese started unsuccessfully: two defeats with a minimal advantage in the guests’ legs. They lost to Liverpool (2: 3), and in the second round to Atlético (1: 2).
