Italy Serie A — 07 January 2012

As the Christmas Season has just passed, the Italian Serie A is ready to restart. On the 17th fixture there is the game between Atalanta and AC Milan. As the standings read, AC Milan are topping the table head to head with rivals Juventus whilst Atalanta are eleventh. The balance between Atalanta and AC Milan in the last three years is in favour of the Rossoneri as AC Milan won 4 encounters, Atalanta won 1 and 1 match finished level. In their last 7 matches, Atalanta collected 5 draws and two wins which make 11 points from the 21 points available. On the other hand AC Milan collected 5 wins and 2 draws from their last 7 matches earning them an astonishing 17 points from 21 points. Both sides will be missing several key players. Most probably Atalanta will be missing Schelotto while Tiribocchi, Brighi and Doni will definitely miss the match. On the other hand AC Milan will be missing a long list of players containing Yepes, Nesta, Gattuso and Flamini. AC Milan defender Ignazio Abate is unlikely to play as AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri is considering changing the formation. Swedish striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, will be leading AC Milan’s attack alongside Robinho or Pato. They will be supported by Ghana midfielder, Kevin-Prince Boateng. Atalanta vs AC Milan should be an entertaining match with Atalanta looking to gain some points to improve their table position whilst AC Milan need the 3 points to keep on challenging for the title with Juventus.
