Like the Juve game, am going into this prepared to lose. A draw or win is a bonus. Just hope it's not another 5-0 kind of loss.

Just do a number on Illicit and I think 60% of the threat is neutralized. There's Zapata, yeah, but I have hope Kjaer can deal with that. At the end, the absences will be our undoing. A draw would be great, a loss not unexpected.

Atalanta play today though. That will be to our benefit as they look kind of tired, they already did in the last game against Genoa which they drew.

Roma copa Italia game was good for us also, 120 minutes with some key players playing the whole game.

Atalanta with their second draw in a row. That puts them a firm 10 points behind us for the next game. While they rested Ilicic/Zapata, I would argue those are not the players that need a rest for them, that would be their midfield.

Also Juve play Napoli in the Super cup tonight, which is good.

Wow, Theo was false positive and Rebic and Krunic are negative in the latest tests. Awesome news, hopefully they are in good enough shape to be included in the game against Atalanta.

I don't even want to know whether Theo is fit or not. Just include him. The mere thought of Dalot there gives me the creep.

Theo was only diagnosed positive last week, right? So unless he injured himself in quarantine, I can not see why he should not be fit.
Great news anyway to have both Theo and Rebic available.

Great news indeed. Now only the CB pairing is of concern a little. Duvan against Kalulu is gonna be prickly.

Atalanta would have lost to Udinese had not for the ref and they drew with Genoa, so you face Atalanta at the right time. They suck currently.

Milan on a high with Zlatan, Leao and Theo back not to mention the new signings made.

Prediction

Milan 2-1 Atalanta

Nice try. Says a lot about Atalanta that even when they don’t play well, they still manage to get points out of all matches. Not a coincidence they haven’t lost in the last 9-10 matches. I’m sure we’ll lose here. And so are the bookmakers.

It is odd that the leaders of serie A are paid so much in a game at home vs a team like Atalanta. Do not misunderstand me, I rate highly Atalanta and I have a half of their attack in my fantasy team, but it is not a situation in which I consider Atalanta the favorite team, whatever the bookmakers tell me.
Curious about Meite, I wonder whether he will work hard or the fact that playing the way he played at Torino gave him a chance to move from Torino to Milan has convinced him that there is no need to increase the work rate.

Kessie pen, Mandzukic off the bench

You heard it here first
