Serie A Preview: Atalanta-AC Milan

Sunday’s hosts defeated the Rossoneri early on in the Serie A season, but their recent form has been woeful and Massimiliano Allegri’s side will be keen to make up for that loss.

Atalanta coach Stefano Colantuono will be without the likes of Gianpaolo Bellini, Daniele Capelli (knee) and Guido Marilungo (cruciate ligament) for AC Milan’s visit to the Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.

Meanwhile, Nerazzurri midfielder Luigi Giorgi will miss the Lombardy derby having been sent off late in the 1-1 draw with Cagliari.

The Rossoneri remain without central midfielders Massimo Ambrosini and Nigel de Jong for their trip to Bergamo, while Urby Emanuelson and Mario Yepes are not expected to feature in the squad.

In defense, Ignazio Abate - who has been linked with a move to Zenit - is likely to make way for Mattia De Sciglio, and Daniele Bonera could start ahead of Philippe Mexes. Massimiliano Allegri has already confirmed that his attacking trio will remain unchanged, but he could opt to swap out Mathieu Flamini for Antonio Nocerino.

  • Atalanta has only won one of its last nine Serie A clashes - a 2-1 home triumph over Parma.

  • AC Milan sits sixth in the Serie A having surged up the table since a rocky start to the season. Its opponent, contrastingly, has been in reverse and is wedged in 13th in the Italian top tier.
  • Stephan El Shaarawy (pictured, right) is Milan's top goalscorer this season but has not scored in over a month in the league for the Rossoneri.
  • The two teams played in matchday three of the Serie A season, and Luca Cigarini scored the only goal of the game to condemn Allegri's side to its second defeat in the first three matches.

  • Milan won both Italian top-tier games against its Lombardy neighbors 2-0 last season.
  • Both clubs have only kept four clean sheets in Serie A clashes this campaign.
