“It was a difficult start for me at Milan, but I want to leave that behind me,” Bertolacci told Milan TV.

“Now let’s focus on the present, as Atalanta are a difficult side and we need great hunger and determination to get the better of them.

“I hope to score, but it’s more important for the team to win. Today’s match feels like a clash for Europe, considering both our positions in the table.

“I expect an aggressive Atalanta performance, as they make individual duels their main weapon. We have to make the most of our own characteristics.”
