Inter Milan vs Atalanta Prediction
Both teams have managed to string along some excellent results in the past weeks and therefore confidence will be flying at the San Siro. Inter are coming on the back of 6 consecutive Serie A wins while Atalanta made it 5 on the bounce.
These two sides are also known for heavily outscoring their opponents, Antonio Conte are way ahead of most Italian teams this season in this aspect with 5 of their last 6 wins came with 2 or more goal margin.
Meantime, Atalanta average 2.4 goals per game and have a goal aggregate difference of 28 this season. They too won their latest three league games with an Asian Handicap -1.5 goals.
However, Monday’s clash is expected to be a cagey affair since both teams will be cautious of each other’s attacking prowess and we had seen a similar approach when they met at Bergamo in November 2020, the match ended with a 1-1 full-time scoreline.
On top of that, 6 of their last 7 Serie A head-to-head games saw fewer than 3 goals at full-time and considering the importance of this match which is similar to a cup final we may take the under 3.5 goals full-time as the priority bet.
Brave punters meanwhile can back the second half as the highest scoring half as the match is expected to open in the final 15 minutes and both teams had the knack of scoring late goals from losing positions.
