Team news

AC Milan: Stefano Pioli is likely to play with most of the starters against Atalanta. Matteo Gabbia, who is back from the Villarreal loan, will be starting at center back while Christian Pulisic will also likely start alongside Rafael Leao and Luka Jovic. 

Potential AC Milan XI: Maignan; Calabria, Gabbia, Kjaer, Theo Hernandez; Adli, Reijnders; Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, Leao; Jovic.

Atalanta: Gasperini's main doubt is the one of the former AC Milan man Charles De Ketelaere, who is not fully fit and might start from the bench if he doesn't recover on time before Wednesday. The rest of the team is quite predictable. 

Potential Atalanta XI: Carnesecchi; Scalvini, Djimsiti, Kolasinac; Zappacosta, De Roon, Ederson, Ruggeri; Koopmeiners; Scamacca, De Ketelaere.


Despite Atalanta not being an easy opponent to face, AC Milan are now one of the leading candidates to win the competition. Pick: AC Milan 2, Atalanta 1.
