Atalanta – La Dea to falter in yet another big match-up?

La Dea can close to within five points of the Serie A summit with victory over leaders Inter Milan on Sunday. However, this would require them doing something they have only managed three times in nine attempts so far this campaign, and that is win a league game at their Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo. The fact AC Milan, Lazio and AS Roma all prevailed there in 2021-22 suggests it could be a tall order for our hosts.

Last week’s 6-2 triumph away to Udinese represented an almost perfect start to the new year, aside from the goals they conceded. Then again we have grown accustomed to Atalanta performing on the road. They have seven wins from nine away Serie A matches this term, but post a mediocre W3 D3 L3 as the home side. Thrashed 4-1 last time out in Bergamo by Roma, fans will demand a response against the champions.

Key Stat: In all competitions, Atalanta have both scored and conceded at least two goals in five of the last eight home matches, winning only two of these contests (W2 D3 L3).


Both Teams to Score 2 or More Goals



Inter Milan – Champs targeting ninth consecutive Serie A victory?

The Nerazzurri maintained their one-point advantage atop Serie A with a gritty performance in last Saturday’s 2-1 victory at home to European chasing Lazio. It was an eighth consecutive victory in the league for Simone Inzaghi’s side, who haven’t dropped a single point since their 1-1 draw in the first Derby della Madonnina of the season, with six of these victories achieved without so much as conceding a single goal.

Having recorded a clean sheet on two of four prior visits to this venue, could another Inter win to nil materialise on Sunday? It is certainly possible. Inter have won their last three away league games without conceding, including an eye-catching 3-0 scoreline at Roma, who recently turned Atalanta over in Bergamo 4-1. Wednesday’s Super Cup success against Juventus will only have added to their burgeoning belief.

Key Stat: Inter Milan’s seven away victories in Serie A this term has seen them win by at least a two-goal margin six times. This includes all of their last three such fixtures against Venezia (0-2), Roma (0-3) and Salernitana (0-5).

Atalanta Vs Inter Milan Betting Advice

The spoils were equally shared when these teams collided at San Siro in September, in what was a thrilling encounter. Inter should have won it late on but spurned an 86th minute penalty, only to then see Atalanta score what they believed was a dramatic late winner only for VAR to come to the champions rescue. That game has lifted expectations ahead of this renewal, although caution is perhaps best advised.


Atalanta Vs Inter Milan – Key Facts:

  • Inter Milan have avoided defeat on their last two visits to Atalanta (W1 D1) but boast a solitary victory across their last six trips to Bergamo (D3 L2).
  • All of the past four Atalanta home games in Serie A produced a minumum of four match goals, while only two of nine this season didn’t feature Both Teams to Score.
  • After conceding in each of their opening five away league games to this season, Inter have allowed one goal in five subsequent such matches.


That 2-2 draw earlier in the season was the first in six meetings to see more than two goals scored between the teams, with this typically a cagey affair. Inter’s impressive defensive record on the road (9 conceded in 10 away matches, not conceding in any of the last three) may hint at another attritional battle. Although games at Gewiss Stadium are rarely dull, the last six in all comps averaging 4.83 goals and all going Over 3.5.
