Can the Rossoneri grab a win and hold onto third place?

AC Milan will be looking to bounce back from their 1-0 loss to Roma last weekend when they take on Atalanta at the San Siro. It will be no easy task for the men in red and black, who have lost three of the last five against the Bergamaschi.

The return of Carlos Bacca to the starting lineup seems imminent, and will provide some much needed firepower up front following the failures of last week and recent matches. Niang in particular has struggled, missing a crucial penalty against Roma and under performing as a whole.

Milan have also failed to score in three of the last four home matches against Atalanta, so history is not on their side.

A win would mean Milan keep the pace with Roma (2nd, 35 points) and Juventus (1st, 39 points), whilst also retaining their third spot on the ladder.
