Inter Milan Preview – Can Inter continue excellent run and put pressure on Juve ahead of their game on Sunday?

It was a big test passed in midweek when Inter defeated Napoli in impressive fashion and Antonio Conte’s men now have another big examination of their title credentials. Level on points with Juventus at the top of Serie A and top by virtue of a better goal difference, Inter can pile the pressure on their title rivals who have a difficult game of their own when facing Roma on Sunday. Conte will just be ensuring his team concentrate on getting another big win and extending their unbeaten run to 13 matches since losing at home to Juve.

Our betting prediction:
Lucas Muriel to score anytime

(odds taken 1800 GMT, Friday 10 January)

Key to Inter’s excellent campaign so far has been the striking duo of Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez who have combined for 23 goals between them. That’s more than half Inter’s goals in the league and both were on the score sheet on Monday in Naples. Keeping them fit and on form is going to be huge for their chances of winning a first league title since Jose Mourinho led them to a historic treble in 2010.


Atalanta Preview – Will free-scoring Atalanta inflit defeat on Inter for the first time in 12 matches?

Qualifying for the knockout phase of the Champions League in remarkable circumstances was always likely to give Atalanta a boost and so it has proved. Following a largely disappointing and inconsistent period in November, Atalanta have since won four our of five games in Serie A to climb into fifth spot and are only one point behind Roma who currently occupy the final Champions League qualification spot.

Know for their free-scoring attacking, Atalanta picked up where they left off in 2019 when thumping Parma 5-0 in their latest game. That came on the back of another five-star performance to close out last year when defeating the other half of Milan. This is obviously going to be a completely different sort of test but it’s one which they will no doubt relish.

No team has scored more goals in Serie A this season than Atalanta which is a hallmark of their style. They also spread the goals around their team with Lucas Muriel leading the way on 10 goals in his first season at the club. Only Inter have netted more on their travels so far which will give Atalanta confidence that they can threaten the league leaders on their own patch.

Somewhat ironically, the only game away game in Serie A that Atalanta have failed to score in is against a struggling Sampdoria side.
