Analysis and forecast for the match of the 37th round of the Italian championship “Milan” – “Atalanta” (15.05.2022)

In Serie A, Milan and Inter are fighting for the Scudetto. They compete in stability, luck and skill. So far, the Rossoneri are leading the standings, but the uncompromising Atalanta can spoil the weather for them. On May 15, at the legendary San Siro stadium, the Milanese and the Bergamasks will measure their strength.

In the last four rounds in the Italian championship, Milan played strictly to win. As a result, he defeated Genoa (2:0), Lazio (2:1), Fiorentina (1:0) and Verona (3:1). In all these meetings, he acted as the first number. It was felt that the club controls what is happening and knows how to get the desired result.

A good example of this is the confrontation of the last round of Serie A with Verona. Losing in the score, the Rossoneri played with cold confidence, without fuss and anxiety. As a result, they got three points. However, it is worth paying tribute to Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Stefano Pioli for this. The 40-year-old Swede morally set his teammates up for success, and the Italian outplayed his opponent tactically.

Under the guidance of an experienced mentor, the “devils” have dramatically improved the quality of football – throughout the current season they have been admiring with a cool team game. The coach created a family atmosphere in the team, which more than once helped to win strong-willed victories over strong opponents in Serie A. But in other competitions, his wards failed to succeed.

They were eliminated from the Champions League in the group stage. Due to injuries to the main players, the Milanese club simply did not have enough resources for an equal fight with Liverpool, Atl├ętico and Porto. In the Coppa Italia, the Rossoneri also failed, although they reached the semi-finals. Lost on aggregate to Inter (0:3). Now all forces are concentrated on the conquest of the Scudetto.

Atalanta in the last four rounds in the Italian championship also got good results. First, she defeated the closing standings “Venice” (3:1), then tied with “Torino” (4:4) and “Salernitana” (1:1), and also defeated “Spezia” (3:1). Opponents were not the most eminent, so there were no big problems.

But if we look a little further, we will find three defeats in a row – from Napoli (1:3), Sassuolo (1:2) and Verona (1:2). As usual, the Bergamasks did not have enough reliability in defense. This season, as in the past, they miss quite a lot. In 36 matches in Serie A, they received 45 goals in their net.

They themselves scored more – 65, but most of them fell to the share of middle peasants and outsiders. The fact is that Gian Piero Gasperini for most of this season was forced to do without two main goalscorers – Duvan Zapata and Josip Ilicic. The coach cannot rely on the midfielder to this day.

The Italian specialist tried to use Alexei Miranchuk and Ruslan Malinovsky as a replacement for midfielders. In some meetings, the efforts of the midfielders were beneficial, but in order to succeed in the Europa League, this was not enough. At the stage of the 1/4 finals, the “goddess” lost on the sum of two meetings to “Leipzig” (1:3) and left the competition.

In the last three confrontations in the Italian championship, Miranchuk remained on the bench. In the upcoming match, the Russian is also unlikely to take a direct part. Now Gian Piero Gasperini has more confidence in other players, including Duvan Zapata, who has recovered from injury. Whatever it was, in the upcoming match, the favorite is Milan.

In the current Serie A draw, the level of Bergamasks is an order of magnitude lower than the Milanese. The team is on the eighth line in the standings and cannot boast of stability. Unlike an opponent who is actively fighting for the Scudetto. In the last two face-to-face meetings, the Rossoneri won 2:0 and 3:2. I think they will win this time. Let’s take P1 as a factor of 1.86.

Forecast and bets for the Serie A match Milan – Atalanta on May 15, 2022

Milan are super motivated to succeed. In the last four meetings, the club won victories over strong opponents. Pleased with the highest quality of the game and strong-willed qualities. Atalanta still has serious problems in defense. From strong teams, the team regularly misses a lot, but the performance itself does not always please. The hosts look better.

Bid: Milan win for a factor of 1.86.
