AC Milan midfielder Giamcomo Bonaventura remains a doubt for the hosts this weekend as a result of a hamstring tear, whilst Riccardo Montolivo is a long term absentee with a knee injury.
Head coach Vicenzo Montella could recall Colombian forward Carlos Bacca after a two match absence, and young Italian starlet Gianluca Lapadula is likely to start on Saturday who’s becoming a crowd favourite, scoring four goals in his last five appearances.
On the other hand, Atalanta continues without goalkeeper Etrit Berisha with a knee injury but is nearing a return, and could feature next month.
Both teams look to get back to winnings ways in Serie A this weekend, as third-placed AC Milan play host to Atalanta at the San Siro on Saturday afternoon.
The Rossoneri come into the match after a 1-0 defeat to title rivals Roma on Tuesday night, which included a missed penalty from M’Baye Niang.
Milan will be looking to bounce back immediately and get their Scudetto challenge back on track with a victory, and have lost just once in their last eight league matches at home this season.
Meanwhile, the visitors have suffered a dip of form with back-to-back losses at home to Udinese and away to defending champions Juventus.
However, Gian Piero Gasperini’s men are still in a healthy position in the league, currently sixth on 28 points, with just four points separating them from their weekend opponents.
Furthermore, Atlanta has a decent record at the San Siro who are unbeaten in their last two visits to Milan, which includes a goalless draw in their previous travels.
