Curse of San Siro continues for Milan

Milan 0 Atalanta 1 The curse of the San Siro continued for Milan as they lost for the second time by the same 1-0 scoreline with Atalanta following the example of Sampdoria by taking all three points. Luca Cigarini scored the only goal of the game in the 64th minute as the Bergamese side took all three points at a venue where the home team, be it Milan or Inter, have yet to win in five attempts so far this season. Milan went close enough on numerous occasions, but lacked a cutting edge as a tactically perfect Atalanta side took three points with them on their short trip home. Winning a football game can sometimes be decided by a matter of inches. Losing idem. Milan were only inches away from finding the back of the net against Atalanta on at least three occasions, but they drew a blank, and lost the game. Despite spending almost 90 minutes on the attack and sending ball after ball into the Atalanta penalty area, the lack of an extra inch on the foot of Nigel de Jong, Giampaolo Pazzini and others ultimately cost the Rossoneri dearly. As has been the case for city rivals Inter Milan, there has been no joy on the new artificial pitch inside the San Siro.
