AC Milan will continue its title defense and will face its first major test as it clashes with Atalanta on August 22 at the latter’s home ground.
Milan had began its campaign with a 4-2 win over Udinese, with Croatian forward Ante Rebic starring with two goals. Atalanta too had a winning start after it won 2-0 at Sampdoria.
Juventus, who has won Serie-A a record 36 times, will be the next to visit Sampdoria on August 23. It will be looking to sustain its winning momentum after last week’s 3-0 win over Sassuolo. New signing Angel di Maria marked his arrival with a goal in the first half and an assist in second half for Dusan Vlahovic, who scored a brace.
Milan’s neighbour and eternal rivals, Inter Milan will have an away fixture against Spezia to deal with this week. Inter will be looking for a more comprehensive performance after it just eked out a 2-1 win against Lecce, thanks to a last minute goal from Denzel Dumfries.
Returning striker Romelu Lukaku’s second-minute goal was another highlight of the game. The Belgian will be looking forward to stamping his authority in the Italian league after a disappointing stint at Chelsea.
