Atalanta Vs Milan; A lombardian derby
Atalanta will host the rossoneri this Sunday in what is the first Lombardian derby of the season. The nerazzurri have been in impressive form this season and they will no doubt cause some problems for the struggling European Champions. Gigí Del Neri's men have only lost one game so far this season while the rossoneri have lost three.
Diego De Ascentis is still serving his 3 match ban, so the Bergamaschi will have to do without the Como born player. While the Via Turati outfit will have no players suspended and should be able to field a full squad.
Massimo Oddo could return to the starting line-up after being in the hospital for a few weeks following muscular problems, while Jankulovski is still nursing his injured knee. Gattuso should still make the trip following the birth of his second child today; Francesco Gattuso. Congrats Gennaro!!
While upfront Ancelotti has a lot more options with Ronaldo now fit, Inzaghi's return to scoring and with Gilardino also been delivering the goods, it is problem that has finally been welcomed for the Milan tactician.
However the Stadio Mario Brumara has often caused some problems for the diavoli and they will need to be aware throughout the whole game. At least their away form is better than their form at home.
