Atalanta were in tragic shape at the start of the season but they have overcome their struggles. They are coming off a great win which was actually their third in a row. They will now have a tough time making it four in succession when they will host Inter Milan on Sunday. Inter Milan fought hard against Barcelona in the Champions League and have been really good in domestic competitions.

Spread: Inter Milan +0.0
Total: 2.5 Goals
Atalanta (4-4-3) fought really hard in their last match and eventually defeated Bologna by 1-2 on the road. Their opponents took an early lead at the 3rd minute, but Atalanta quickly took control of the match. They were much better than their opponents and managed to pull even at the 57th, before overturning the result at the 70th minute. That was their third consecutive win, having scored 10 goals in that span while conceding just two. But due to their bad start in the season, Atalanta are now sitting at the 9th spot of the league table with 15 points. They have scored 19 goals so far and have conceded 13 in the process. They started their Europa League duties early in the summer when they played in the qualifiers. They didn’t qualify but the fatigue got the best of them. They have not been very good at home so far in the league (2-2-1), where they also had two draws and a win in the qualifiers.
On the other hand, Inter Milan (8-2-1) played a really competitive match at home against Barcelona on Tuesday for the Champions League. Their opponents were much better throughout the whole match and took the lead at the 83rd minute. But Inter Milan managed to pull even at the 87th minute when Icardi scored on their only shot on target. They are now sitting at the 2nd spot of their respective group and are on track to qualify. Last week in the Serie A they recorded a massive 0-5 win at home against Genoa and have now won each of their last seven matches for the league. They are sitting at the 2nd spot of the Serie A with 25 points, just as many as Napoli, and both teams are six behind Juventus. Inter Milan have the 2nd best away record in the league (4-1-0) where they have scored 9 and have conceded just two goals. They have also recorded an away win and a loss in the Champions League.
Inter Milan defeated Atalanta by 0-2 in this venue last season, before a goal-less draw on the road. They have been great in this match-up in the last five years (5-3-3) and have lost just once in the last four years (5-1-2). They have also been great as visitors here in the past two decades (5-3-7), but have won just once in the past decade (1-3-5).
Atalanta are in great shape right now and could easily put up a fight against Inter Milan here. Inter Milan are coming off a really competitive match against Barcelona and might carry some fatigue. The hosts have stood greatly at home against Inter Milan over the years and might grab a point here.
