Rossoneri held onto a three-point lead atop the standings with a 2-0 win away to Cagliari on Monday. Milan have only lost once in the league since going down to Genoa in March last year as they set their sights on a first Scudetto in 10 years. 
 
"We think about giving our best every match, the season has been like this," Milan head coach Stefano Pioli told Sky Sport Italia. “I always ask my players for attention, we must all be ready, we were.

“We faced a test of strength, we deservedly won [against Cagliari].  I say thank you to the fans for their support, the team will do everything to give our best, we must continue to think that every match will be the most important.

“On Saturday we will have a very important game against Atalanta, then in April we will see the ranking."
 
Atalanta will be in action twice this week, away to Udinese on Wednesday before making the trip to the San Siro following a 0-0 draw at home to Genoa this past weekend. The result extended La Dea's unbeaten run to eight matches and left them 11 points off top spot.
