Free-flowing Milan hold edge over Atalanta - get Serie A 2021-22 fantasy tips and predictions
Atalanta (ATN) host a courageous AC Milan (MIL) side in the early hours of Monday, October 4 at Atleti Azzurri d'Italia in Matchweek 7 of the Serie A 2021-22 season.
ATN vs MIL Dream11 prediction
While Milan have lost both of their UEFA Champions League fixtures this season, their form in Serie A has been supreme, to say the least. The team has won five of their six league matches and have drawn the other. During this time, the team has scored a whopping 12 goals while conceding just three.
On the contrary, Atalanta have managed just three victories in their six league matches and despite the home advantage, will be the second-best on Monday as their defence has been a little shaky this season.
ATN vs MIL Dream11 tips for Serie A 2021-22
Top tip: Best striker
ATN’s Duvan Zapata is one option to go with but given the current form, Milan’s Rafael Leao should be an ideal choice. The 22-year-old forward has scored three goals this season and has been a menace for the opposition. He is likely to add more to his tally on Monday.
Top tip: Best midfielder
MIL’s attacking midfielder Brahim Diaz should find a place in your team. The 22-year-old has been involved in three goals (G2 A1) in his last three matches and is expected to cause further trouble on Monday.
Top tip: Best defender and goal-keeper
Left-back Theo Hernandez is an outright choice for a defender. The Milan full-back has provided two assists and has also scored a goal this season and has been one vital part of his team which has kept three clean sheets so far.
As for a goal-keeper, MIL’s Mike Maignan is most likely to keep a clean sheet and therefore should be picked ahead of ATN’s Juan Musso.
ATN vs MIL probable playing XI
ATN playing XI (probable): Juan Musso (goal-keeper); Rafael Toloi (captain), Merih Demiral, Berat Djimsiti; Davide Zappacosta, Mario Pasalic, Teun Koopmeiners, Joakim Mæhle; Matteo Pessina; Josip Ilicic, Duvan Zapata
MIL playing XI (probable): Mike Maignan (goal-keeper); Davide Calabria, Fikayo Tomori, Alessio Romagnoli (captain), Theo Hernandez; Sandro Tonali, Franck Kessie; Alexis Saelemaekers, Brahim Diaz, Rafael Leao; Ante Rebic
