Atalanta and Inter Milan have been hard to split in recent years, with three of their last four Serie A encounters ending in stalemate.
However, with Lazio hot on their heels, the pressure is on this time to go for a win that would secure second place behind Juventus in Italy’s top flight.
We’re still expecting a tight tussle, but 29/20 for either team to prevail by one goal is our first Atalanta vs Inter Milan prediction.
A Look At Atalanta’s Betting Odds
Atalanta are unbeaten in 19 matches in all competitions following Tuesday’s 2-1 triumph at Parma, where they battled back from 1-0 down in the final 20 minutes.
Ruslan Malinovskiy cancelled out Dejan Kulusevski’s first-half opener with a low free-kick before Papu Gomez’s 20-yard effort won it.
La Dea have rattled off eight straight home victories, including wins over Valencia, Lazio, Roma and Napoli at Gewiss Stadium.
They are Serie A’s leading scorers with 98 goals, 49 of which have been contributed by Luis Muriel, Duvan Zapata and Josip Ilicic.
The latter has been absent since injured in a 2-2 draw at Juventus on July 11, but this is still an attack-minded team which always plays in a positive manner.
Looking at the Atalanta vs Inter Milan odds, we’re going with 23/10 for a home win and both sides to score.
Last Atalanta line-up: Gollini, Caldara, Sutalo, Palomino, Gosens, Castagne, Gomez, Freuler, De Roon, Pasalic, Zapata.
A Look At Inter Milan’s Betting Odds
Inter have only lost one of a dozen league matches since returning from lockdown and are coming off a fine 2-0 success against Napoli at the San Siro.
Danilo D’Ambrosio opened the scoring in the 11th minute as he fired the ball into the bottom corner.
Lautaro Martinez then added a second-half stunner to make the game safe, as he turned on the halfway line and advanced before firing in from 25 yards.
Martinez now has 14 Serie A goals this term, nine behind team-mate Romelu Lukaku, who has made a big impression since arriving from Manchester United.
Antonio Conte was disappointed to fall behind Juve after challenging for top honours, but is still keen to finish best of the rest.
He told the club website: “Such situations are important because, even if you don’t get any trophies for finishing in second place, getting used to feeling pressure is important.”
However, the Nerazzurri are not the youngest team around and a hectic schedule could catch up with them when facing opponents who play at a high tempo.
Their record in big games is also a concern, having lost twice to Juve this season, as well as tasting defeat at Lazio.
Let’s add 9/1 for a 2-1 home win to our Atalanta vs Inter Milan betting tips.
Last Inter line-up: Handanovic, De Vrij, D’Ambrosio, Biraghi, Bastoni, Valero, Barella, Brozovic, Candreva, Sanchez, Lukaku.
