AC Milan have had a knack this season for following up bad results with positive ones, and they will be hoping to continue that on Sunday against Atalanta.
After the 0-0 against Cagliari on Sunday at San Siro and the missed opportunity to secure a top four spot, some consider Milan to be almost a sacrificial victim to Atalanta at the Gewiss Stadium, considering they lost 5-0 there last season and lost 3-0 at home to La Dea this season.
As MilanLive writes, out of 18 games played so far away from home in the league, the Rossoneri have amassed 46 points at an average of 2.56 per match. Fifteen victories have been obtained with 2 defeats (Spezia and Lazio) and a draw (Genoa). Inter, the champions, have the next-best away form with 39pts accrued.
The report also highlights Milan’s tendency to react promptly to significant defeats (or disappointing results) in the league and Europa League, obtaining important victories against tough opponents.
