Atalanta vs Inter Milan
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday, 11th November 2018
Kick-Off: 11:30 UK,
Venue: Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia (Bergamo).
Inter are continuing to improve with each passing game, and the Nerazzurri will definitely be brimming with confidence ahead of their trip to Bergamo to face Atalanta on Sunday afternoon.
Luciano Spalletti’s side held Barcelona to an impressive 1-1 draw, which further boosts their chances at qualifying for the Champions League round of 16 in a tough quartet that also includes ambitious side Tottenham. The Nerazzurri come into this game having won their last seven Serie A games, and recently earned a comfortable 5-0 win over Genoa ahead of this fixture which has helped them to rise into second place. Six points behind Juventus, they certainly will be looking to close that gap, especially as the Bianconeri face a potentially tricky test against AC Milan later on Sunday.
And with Napoli facing struggling Genoa the day before, the Partenopei will be quite assured of leap-frogging Inter back into second, so Spalletti’s side will want to pick up all three points in this all-Nerazzurri derby. However, Atalanta have also been steadily improving as well. They come into this contest having won their last three games, and that has helped them move up to tenth.
It’s been a solid turnaround for La Dea, who had high hopes of competing on two fronts after a solid finish last term and doing well in the Europa League. But they failed to even get out of the play-offs, and stumbled early on, which saw them hovering around the relegation zone for the early part of this campaign. Yet they seem to have put that firmly behind them and will be looking to continue onwards and upwards – except they are taking on a side who have hit top form just at the right moment.

Atalanta vs Inter Milan: Prediction
Inter are really in excellent form and look largely unstoppable. The Nerazzurri have won their last four away games and although Atalanta have also improved and have a strong home record against Inter at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia, they have yet to beat a team who are in the top half of the table, and have won just one of their last five meetings with Inter across all competitions. Inter come into this game with a full squad at their disposal, and whilst it won’t be an easy game for the visitors, they should be able to nonetheless see off La Dea and come away with all three points.
