Yeah I know :lol:. But these are not the games I expect to be calm victories. Games vs the likes of Frosinone, Spal and Cagliari are.

I'm hoping for a fun game and a victory would be very sweet. Even better if we manage a clean sheet and shut down Zapata who's on a monster form.

Most important match of the season thus far..

It is a real tactical choice.. Should we play freely the way other big teams played at Bergamo, and risk conceding? If we open up as we did against Cagliari last night, I can guarantee it will be at least a 2-2 game if not higher scores.

Or should be clam up with minimal space between Piatek and Romagnoli and go for a 1-0?

Haven't won in four seasons. Huuuuge game this.

I hope we play cautiously and win 2-0, Piatek x2.

I think the choice is obvious and knowing Gattuso we will definitely be played a deeper block than usual and Suso/Calha will be tracking their wingbacks rather than stretching the back three. Our back four need to stay as narrow as possible. Expecting Paqueta to play an important role (along with Kessie) as our way out of being so deep. Well probably depend on them getting freekicks to move us up the field. We wont be trying to dominate possession with aggressive positioning Im sure of that.

It will be Prime Grintuso.

The team has finally begun to express Gattuso's football. If we manage to execute his gameplan I think we'll be a perfect antidote to Atalantas football. We are really very solid at the back.

Expecting a dominant Bakayoko display. What you say about Paqueta and Kessie is on point. Maybe we finally get that Hakan free kick :lol:

Hitchens 11-02-2019 10:26

I have to say it's a pleasant feeling to have a working starting XI with players like Biglia, Conti, Castillejo, Cutrone, Caldara and Laxalt coming up behind that first XI to provide depth. We potentially have a very strong squad going into this top 4 push.

Lombardy derby.

One of the craziest matches for the fans in the stadium.

Hugh Janus 11-02-2019 12:53

Holy f they've almost scored 20 more goals than us. [emoji38]

helloAgain 11-02-2019 12:54

we absolutely dominated them in the reverse fixture for solid 70 minutes. but after that they were on top and could have even won against us. much have changed since. they are on a fine form and we aren't doing that bad either. i expect us to dominate this game and get a win.

Neruda 11-02-2019 13:10

they scored 51 goals but conceded 31 .. we should score 2 in the first half please , make it easier for ourselves ..

but shouldnt forget how they drew 3 - 3 with roma and beat rube

Mr. Milanista 11-02-2019 13:20

Will be our toughest game up until against Inter. I expect us to win the game, but it will be very hard and (dear Lord forgive me for my words) I'd settle for a draw here. Against Empoli, Sassuolo and Chievo we should pick up all the 9 points.

Piatek x2. FT: Atalanta 1-2 Milan

Alec 11-02-2019 13:25

We simply have to be efficient with the chances we get, plenty of openings against Atalanta. Now we have a striker that isn't a pouty and wasteful bum so I'm optimistic.

This is what I'm expecting and surely what Gasperini is expecting as well. So mayyybe we could all get a surprise in the first 20 minutes. They do have a weakness in the center of defense. Mancini is good, but he's more good as a ball-playing, scoring defender than as a defending defender. A quick 1-0 or 2-0 and then playing a more balanced game might be a winning strategy.

voom 11-02-2019 13:44

Atalanta is tough,draw wouldn't be bad here.

MilanMB 11-02-2019 13:46

Fuck a draw, let's win
