Inter Milan – Atalanta
Staying at top for at least one more week. This is what Inter Milan are aiming for when they host Atalanta in a difficult game at the San Siro on Saturday. Let’s take a look at this derby in our football prediction tips for the Italian league.
At this moment Inter Milan are leading the Serie A standings, but sharing the top with Juventus, who have the same amount of points. It’s pretty obvious right now that the title race in Italy this season is going to be really tight. Every point could be decisive at the end. Both Inter and Juve know this.
In the previous round the Nerazzurri had a tough challenge because they travelled to Naples to face Napoli. Antonio Conte’s team played a really good game and secured the points after a 3-1 win at the San Paolo. The Belgian target man Romelu Lukaku scored a brace, while Lautaro Martinez added another one for the visitors.
It seems that nobody really believed that Antonio Conte is going to turn Inter into a title contender, but now Conte is proving that he’s a terrific manager – one of the best in the world.
But now Inter Milan will have another classy opponent against them, because Atalanta are visiting the San Siro after two consecutive 5-0 wins in the league. La Dea showed their strenght against Milan and Parma, scoring 10 goals in these two matches. That’s pretty scary.
Atalanta aim to return to the Top 4, being just one point behind the 4th Roma. This is a difficult game for them, too, but you can be sure that Gian Piero Gasperini’s boys are not scared.
We expect an amazingly good game between Inter Milan and Atalanta – two of the best teams in the Serie A. Inter will try to make another step towards the gold medals, but La Dea have their own cause to fight for.
