The 36th round of Italian Serie A begins on Friday night with the game between Milan and Atalanta. At Giuseppe Meazza Stadium Milan's coach Pioli will face "super" Atalanta of Gian Piero Gasperini. The Devil's ultimate aim is to reach the 5th place, which will guarantee a place in the next season of Europa League. In front of Atalanta are only records to be broken, and they seem like a team ready to enter in history.
Milan continued its effective form and gained victory on Wednesday night against the well-playing team of Sassuolo by 1-2. Ibrahimovic scored the goals, which climbed up the Rossoneri into 5th place, and now their destiny is in their hands. Undoubtedly the transfer of Ibrahimovic was one of the best steps made by Pioli in the last transfer window as Ibra is the main engine of the team during the campaign.
Other notable news from the locker room arrived immediately after the final whistle of the game against Sassuolo namely the new contract for Stefano Pioli. For sure this will bring calmness in Milan squad, and they will be fully focused in their game against Atalanta.
Atalanta comes to Milan after another victory this time against Bologna. With this result, they made their excellent series more impressive which is now counting 18 undefeated games in a row between Serie A and Champions League. One more record is down - “most goals scored in a season”, held till Tuesday from Napoli with their 94 goals, scored in 2016-2017 season.
Atalanta now is second in this ranking and only Milan's record, which is 70 years old, is in front of them. It looks impossible for Atalanta to break it cause Rossoneri have scored the amazing 118 goals in one season back in the days. Even though Atalanta scores a lot of goals in every match, we can hardly believe that they can score 23 in 3 games.
For sure we should take a look at the fact that Atalanta is still in the Champions League race which resumes on 7th August, so we think that Gasperini can use the last 3 rounds in Italian Serie A to try new tactics and rotate his squad.
Milan is undefeated after the Italian Serie A restart
7 wins and 2 draws
27 goals scored by Rossoneri and only one of these 9 games finished with under 2.5 goals

Atalanta and Milan are teams which are showing amazing attacking force, and their games are full of goals and a lot of opportunities in front of the net. That’s why we think that we can expect more than 1.5 goals scored in the first half, a market that comes with great betting odds
