Serie A action returns as AC Milan travel to face their Atalanta on Monday. The match will be played at the Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo and is scheduled to start at 12:15 AM IST. The high profile fixture is all important for the visitors as a win will secure their return to the Champions League after eight long years. At the moment the hosts are in second place in the Serie A standings and have already sealed passage to a third consecutive campaign in Europe’s elite league. However, Gian Piero Gasperini’s men suffered an unfortunate defeat against Juventus in the Coppa Italia final this week and will need to prove their mettle in this fixture.
On the contrary, the visitors are currently ranked third and two points adrift against their Lombardy rivals. But they have managed to arrest their mid-season slump with a string of victories in recent weeks. However, after failing to score maximum points against Caligari last weekend, Stefano Pioli’s side are now engaged in a battle with Juventus and Napoli for a top-four finish in the home league.
The reverse fixture between the two Italian sides Atalanta defeated AC Milan (3-0) in January this year. Heading into this match the Rossoneri cannot afford another debacle.
