AC Milan are back in league action on Saturday evening when they face Atalanta at the Gewiss Stadium, and Stefano Pioli will welcome back one of his key performers.
Today’s edition of Corriere dello Sport (via PianetaMilan) looks ahead to the game in Bergamo at the weekend, which will see Milan take on Atalanta with a nine-point advantage after La Dea lost three of their last four games in the league.
After having obtained three points at home against Fiorentina and Frosinone, the Rossoneri want to continue their positive run in the league against Gian Piero Gasperini’s team , who were defeated 0-3 last night by Torino.
A positive bit of news on the selection front is the return of Olivier Giroud, Milan’s top scorer this season with seven goals in Serie A. He was sent off against Lecce and had to serve a two-match ban, which he did in the Fiorentina and Frosinone games.
Now, the 37-year-old Frenchman is preparing to return to the starting line-up with the desire to repay the team after he missed a couple of games. Luka Jovic will be waiting in the wings to take over, having scored at the weekend and provided an assist.
