Atalanta and AC Milan were the only teams that have yet to lose any game after the pandemic. This situation has not changed after today’s match. To start the 36th round of Serie A, Milan drew 1-1 at home with Atalanta. It was supposed to be the big hit of this series of meetings. Milan - Atalanta 1- 1 (Calhanoglu 14 ‘- Zapata 34’).
In the beginning, the match wasn’t the most interesting one. It is true that there were some Atalanta shots including Zapata’s head, or a long-range hit by Papu Gomez but not much detail. But then it started.
Just before the quarter of an hour was over, Milan got a free-kick. Hakan shoots and Whoa, I’m gliding what a goal it was! Until those beautiful goals at HSV and Bayer Leverkusen came back.

However, AC Milan’s joy lasted less than ten minutes because Lucas Biglia fouled Malinovsky in the penalty area but Atalanta’s joy did not last long either. A saved shot of a previously fouled Ukrainian. A few minutes later his mistake was followed by Atalanta’s action which ended with a Duvan Zapata goal. This was where the interesting actions ended in the first half.

Better to forget the first half of the second forty-five. Only less than twenty minutes before the end, a very dangerous shot was fired by Bonaventura, the ball bounced off the post and the face of Pierluigi Gollini. However, she did not enter the goal.
Then again a moment of a break from the interesting action and then suddenly a red card. Take it easy both teams are still together, it couldn’t be too interesting in this very intense second half. And red was given to a doctor in Milan (XD).
It was obvious that the teams just want to bring this draw to the end. At the end of the match, Atalanta broke up and attempted some attacks but they were not dangerous enough to threaten AC Milan. End of the match.

Breakdown of points on San Siro. You have to honestly say that you deserved it. Looking at these teams before this match, one could count on a more interesting spectacle. However, looking at this match, it was possible to miscalculate. Atalanta stays 5 points behind Juventus in first (Juve with a game in hand), while AC Milan sits in 6th, 4 points ahead of Napoli (Napoli with a game in hand).
