They might both be giants

The two best teams in Italy since the restart proved to Giancarlo Rinaldi just how far Atalanta have come and what the future holds for Milan.

If the Serie A season had started after lockdown, this would have been a top of the table clash. It speaks volumes, however, that it was much more of a surprise for Milan to be setting such a pace than it was for Atalanta. Their match in the eerily quiet San Siro told us how far one team had come and the journey still facing the other.
