Atalanta vs Inter Milan
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 1 August 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.
While these two teams ultimately lost out on the title, they surely did give Juve a hell of a fight for their crown. And considering how the Old Lady have been a mess lately, the title race for the next campaign would be a bit more competitive, and both of these squads would be in the midst of it.
As of now, the two teams are placed second and third in the table, and are separated by just two points. They have already ensured Champions League tickets for the 2020-21 season, and in fact have nothing huge to lose.
However, they could lose a podium finish, as Lazio, who are placed fourth could overtake them with a win. Likely, both La Dea and II Biscione would be going for the three points, and coupled with the offensive talent on either side, this could turn out to be a goal-fest.
Considering that a second-place finish would be a huge mental boost for either squad to go after Juve the next season – expect a fierce encounter this Sunday.

Atalanta vs Inter Milan Prediction
Gian Piero Gasperini’s men recorded a 1-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Parma. Meanwhile, Antonio Conte’s men registered a 2-0 victory against Napoli the past game week.
Both these teams are in form, and they have nothing to lose – as Champions League qualification is already made sure of. Now, all they have to think of is a second-place finish, and considering this is the final league game of the season – the teams will go for it.
In addition, La Dea are on a 20-game unbeaten run, and 16 of these were wins. At home, they are on a nine-fixture winning run, and had won 13 of their last 15 appearances here as well.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 14 of their past 16 overall match-ups, and remained so in 13 of their preceding 15 road trips.
Moreover, 18 of the former 25 overall h2h meetings had goals from both teams, and so did nine of the preceding ten such clashes at this stadium. As such, expect these two in-form squads to turn fixture into a goal-fest.
