Ezequiel Schelotto is hopeful that Atalanta will be able to get a positive result against League leaders Milan on Sunday.
The Rossoneri will start the game as favourites, but the Bergamo boys have been a revelation in Serie A this season and are so far unbeaten at home.
“Milan are a great team who are fighting for a different objective to us,” the former Italian Under-21 told the club’s official website.
“We can’t afford to let them play their own game, we have to press them all of the time and give 100 per cent.
“It’ll certainly be a special game and because we are playing at home we’ll be able to count on the support of our fans.
“Hopefully we’ll put in a great performance.”
Atalanta are currently 11th in Serie A, but without their six point penalty they would actually be joint fifth with Inter.
Milan are co-leaders with Juventus.
