Milan tries to build on Bologna win
Milan, Italy (Sports Network) - AC Milan collected three needed points two weeks ago against Bologna, and the Rossoneri will try to build on that result when the club hosts Atalanta on Saturday.
Milan's first match at the San Siro ended in a 1-0 defeat against Sampdoria, which really ratcheted up the pressure on manager Massimiliano Allegri, who acknowledged that it is just part of the territory when you sign up to manage at Milan.
But Allegri got a bit of breathing room with his team's 3-1 win over Bologna last time out, which included a hat trick from summer signing Giampaolo Pazzini.
AC Milan started out with five points from three games last season, and a win over Atalanta on Saturday would surpass that pace and help Allegri wipe away his forgettable start.
Juventus has picked up where it left off last season by winning its first two games in Serie A, and the Old Lady will try to continue that run at Genoa.
Napoli has also earned six points from two games and will host Parma, while Lazio is the other Serie A side with six points and the Rome-based side will visit Chievo.
Pescara's start to life in Serie A has been anything but smooth as the club has been outscored 6-0 in two defeats, and things don't figure to get any easier against Sampdoria, which has won its first two matches.
Palermo hosts Calgiari on Saturday with the home side still searching for its first point of the season, while Roma squares off with a Bologna team that has also dropped its first two matches.
Fiorentina entertains Catania, Udinese travels to Siena and Inter Milan tries to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Roma when the club visits Torino.
