Match Preview

Milan will face Atletico Madrid in matchday 2 of Group B of the UEFA Champions League 2021/22 which will take place at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Wednesday (29/09/2021) at 12:30 midnight Indian time..

In the opening match, Milan had to admit defeat to Liverpool with a score of 2-3. Despite losing, Milan in that match was in fact able to provide quite a fierce resistance against the  Reds . With this defeat, Milan must now be at the bottom of Group B standings with a collection of 0 points.

Ahead of this match, Milan itself is in very good condition. Milan recorded untouched defeat even in the last 3 matches. They held Juventus to a 1-1 draw, then successively won over Venezia 2-0 and Spezia 2-1.

Meanwhile, Atm in the opening match had to be willing to share the numbers after being held to a draw by Porto with a score of 0-0. These results make Atm now in second position in Group B standings with a collection of 1 point.

Atm itself is in a bad condition ahead of this match. Last weekend, Atm surprisingly fell with a score of 0-1 during a visit to Alaves headquarters in La Liga. The defeat made Atm only recorded 1 win in the last 4 matches (W1 D2 L1).

Milan and Atm have met twice, namely in the last 16 of the Champions League 2013/14 season. In that match, Milan had to be eliminated after losing 1-5 on aggregate to Atm. In the first leg Milan lost 0-1 at home, then in the second leg Milan also lost 1-4 at Atm headquarters.

Playing at home alone will of course make Milan more favored over Atm in this match. Moreover, Milan's performance is also better than Atm lately.

However, Milan of course still has to be vigilant considering they have a poor record when dealing with Atm.
