The game against Atalanta may seal the deal for them if they win and Inter does not win in Cagliari against a team that is fighting to stay in the elite competition.
Milan is playing on the road against Sassuolo in the final round which seems like a winnable game but the Rossoneri will definitely try to win the title with back-to-back victories in the final two rounds. Atalanta is a very good team, a Champions League regular in recent years and they can be a tough opponent. Anyway, Milan’s players are aware that this may be once in a lifetime opportunity to win the Scudetto and they will use that extra motivation to defeat Atalanta and be one step away from the crown.
