AC Milan lost their Champions League encounter against Atletico Madrid but will somewhat get a second chance tomorrow evening. In fact, the clash against Atalanta should be very similar to a UCL game.
As highlighted by MilanNews, based on what we have seen on the pitch for several months now, Atalanta-Milan should offer the most European characteristics within the Italian borders. Of course, this will be the game very enjoyable.
High pace and intensity, offensive pressing and fast play, players with stamina and interchangeable in their positions: Atalanta and Milan are very similar when it comes to these important factors.
The Champions League, among other things, is confirming these values: Milan and Atalanta, albeit with different results so far, are the ones that are impressing the most among the Italians.
For Stefano Pioli, the player that can unlock the game is Rafael Leao. The Portuguese youngster is in red-hot form and has contributed a lot thus far. In a game of high intensity, his stamina, pace and creativity could be crucial for Milan.
