Inter Milan vs Atalanta: Match Preview

The Nerazzurri continued their Scudetto push with an important 3-1 victory at Napoli, thanks to dynamic duo up-front, Romelu Lukaku (2) and Lautaro Martinez. As a result, Milan-based outfit are still at the top, tied with Juventus, but ahead on goal difference and six points points clear of Lazio.

Antonio Conte’s men will be hoping to stretch their winning run to three games when they take on fellow black-and-blue team.

Inter Milan have recorded six wins, two draws and one defeat at Meazza this season, bagging 1.89 goals per match and conceding 0.67 in return. They’ve smashed Genoa 4-0 in their latest home fixture.

D’Ambrosio remains out with a muscle injury; Skriniar and Barella sre suspended.

Atalanta come into this game having won four of their last five league matches, including two huge 5-0 wins at home over AC Milan and Parma. During that stretch, the Bergamese leapfrogged out-of-form Cagliari and capitalized on Roma’s surprising defeat to move just a point behind the Giallorossi.

With Duvan Zapata back in the team, Gian Piero Gasperoni’s side will eye a big scalp in a massive test at Giuseppe Meazza this weekend.

‘La Dea’ have logged five wins, three draws and one loss away from home, averaging 2.22 goals per bout, whilst conceding 1.22. Atalanta slipped to 1-2 defeat in Bologna in their most recent road game.

The visiting side is at full strength – there are no injuries or suspension to report.

Inter (3-5-2): Handanovic – Godin, de Vrij, Bastoni – Candreva, Vecino, Brozovic, Sensi, Biraghi – Lautaro Martinez, Lukaku.

Inter Milan vs Atalanta: Prediction

We’re in for a thrilling game between two in-form teams. Both sides are producing fantastic numbers – Inter have the third best goal-scoring record in the competition with 39 goals, while Atalanta have bagged astonishing 48 goals to date. Therefore, I’m hitting over 2.5 goals & BTTS – Yes.

With a 3-2 hunch, I’ll pick the hosts in DNB market. I was thinking of backing Inter to win at fantastic odds, but Skrinair and Barella are too important for the Nerazzurri, so I takea safer option here.

Finally, I will back Belgian hitman Romelu Lukaku to get on the score sheet. Former Man Utd striker has scored four goals in last two Serie A matches.
