Inter Milan vs Atalanta: Predictions
After nine straight years of Juventus dominance in Serie A, their almost-perennial stranglehold on the scudetto is in serious jeopardy of being thwarted, with Inter Milan the current lead contenders to break The Old Lady‘s top-flight monopoly and bring silverware back to the San Siro.
Under Antonio Conte, the Nerazzurri have recently emerged as front-runners for the title, capitalising on rivals AC Milan’s patchy form and leapfrogging them into first, with the club now on a tear of six consecutive wins in the league and six points clear at the summit.
Atalanta have also hit a bit of a purple patch in recent outings, with Gian Piero Gasperini working wonders to juggle his European commitments, in which The Goddess face a second-leg Champions League last-16 showdown with Real Madrid, while keeping his side fiercely competitive domestically.
Last month, Atalanta went unbeaten in Serie A and booked a ticket to the Coppa Italia final, where they face Juventus in May, and that form saw them rise into the top four, as well as generating momentum for this mouthwatering clash between first and fourth, two giants of Italian football locking horns at the San Siro.

Inter Milan vs Atalanta: Match Stats
If the game starts in tentative fashion, don’t tune out at half time, as these sides tend to come alive late on. Both Inter Milan (42) and Atalanta (34) rank first and second respectively for most second half goals scored in Serie A this season, so there should be fireworks after the restart.
One player likely to play a lead role in this contest is Romelu Lukaku. Not only has the brilliant Belgian marksman registered a whopping eight Serie A assists, a record for him in a single campaign in Europe’s top five leagues, but he has also bagged 18 goals, placing him second in the race for the top flight’s Capocannoniere award, with Cristiano Ronaldo currently leading the charge on 20 goals.
It was honours even in Bergamo back in November, with a late Aleksei Miranchuk goal in the last 10 minutes securing Gasperini’s charges a point after Lautaro Martinez fired Inter in front on the hour mark. That late drama ensured the Milan giants have now only won one of their last six matches against Atalanta in Serie A (four draws, one loss), which extends all the way back to 2018.
