Inter Milan look just as strong this season after winning the Serie A title last term. The team’s fire sale of top talent in the summer led many onlookers to believe the team would struggle this season. However, new coach Simone Inzaghi has done brilliantly. Inter Milan have taken 13 points from 15 possible with the only blemish on the team’s record being a 2-2 draw with Sampdoria.

Inter Milan vs Atalanta Match Preview

Atalanta have had a similar strong start and sit in fifth place with 10 points from 15 possible. La Dea continue to overachieve under the coaching of Gian Piero Gasperini, who could go down in Atalanta history as the club’s greatest-ever coach. Atalanta are five points off of first-place Napoli and a win over Inter Milan could take the team as high as third place depending on results elsewhere.

The goals have not flown for Atalanta like in recent campaigns. La Dea have scored just six goals in five games while allowing four. Atalanta won in midweek 2-1 against Sassuolo while Inter Milan claimed a come from behind 3-1 victory over Fiorentina. It was the Nerazzurri’s second straight win in Serie A.

The home team was unbeaten in both matches last season between these clubs. Atalanta have not defeated Inter Milan since the 2018-19 Serie A campaign. Can they do it this season?
