Inter vs Atalanta Betting Tips
Inter are currently at the very summit of the Serie A table. The trouble is that they have the same number of points as Juventus, a team that’s breathing by their necks. This means that in order to stay in the top position, Inter need to keep on playing well. Beating Atalanta at home is a must for this team.
Inter have been fantastic in the league, with only one defeat so far. And that defeat happened a long time ago. It was October when they got defeated by Juventus. Since then, they’ve been fantastic in Serie A, which has been their main focus this season. They have set their eyes on the title and will do all they can to get ahold of it.
Playing with Atalanta is always tricky as this team plays very attacking-minded football. In fact, Atalanta is the team with the most goals scored of all Serie A teams this season, with 48 goals after 18 rounds. In comparison, Inter have scored 39 goals. However, Inter have been much better at the back. Actually, Inter is the team with the least number of goals conceded in Serie A this season. They’ve allowed only 15 in comparison to Atalanta’s 25 conceded goals.
What this practically means is that the Inter vs Atalanta duel is going to be the clash between the best defense in the league and the best attack in the league. The last time these two met, the score was 0:0. But, that was the time when Inter had a different manager. With Antonio Conte, Inter look more confident and more willing to take risks, especially when it comes to Serie A games. This is why it’s fair to expect the home side to attack instead of trying to curb down Atalanta’s attacks.

Inter are coming into this game after making a historic win over Napoli last Monday. They beat Napoli at San Paolo, which was their first win in Naples in Serie A in this century. Obviously, achieving such a thing must’ve given them a major confidence boost, which is why they will not fear Atalanta. Instead, they will confidently take the ball in their possession and try to dominate the game.

Atalanta have been in a goal-scoring mood lately. In their previous two Serie A games, they scored a total of 10 goals. They also did well defensively, keeping a clean sheet on both occasions. The same probably isn’t going to be the case against Inter as this team has a fantastic attack. It seems that Atalanta’s strategy in this game is going to be to try to outscore the opponent.
