Inter Milan vs AtalantaSerie A, KO: 17:00 Sep 25, 2021, San Siro
Inter Milan are looking to extend their lengthy winning run at San Siro when they host Atalanta in an Italian Serie A fixture. The champions are almost unstoppable at home and given Atalanta’s inconsistent start to the season, the hosts are likely to have the upper hand.
Inter Milan maintained their unbeaten start to the Serie A season with a 3-1 victory at Fiorentina in their previous fixture. They fought back from a goal down with second half efforts from Matteo Darmian, Edin Dzeko and Ivan Perisic.
It has been a solid start to the title defence for Inter Milan, who have claimed four wins from their opening five matches. They have settle well to life under manager Simone Inzaghi’s attacking philosophy and have scored two or more goals in all their matches so far.
Home form has been key for Inter Milan who have won both their matches at San Siro this season. The Nerazzurri are also on an impressive 19-match winning run at home stretching back to last term.
Atalanta were also victorious in their last Serie A fixture where they overcame Sassuolo 2-1. They raced to a two-goal lead through Robin Gosens and Davide Zappacosta before the visitors pulled one back.
After finding things difficult in recent weeks, Atalanta appear to be slowly getting into their rhythm. Gianpiero Gasperini’s men have won their last two matches but could set for a difficult task at the home of the champions.
As always, defending remains a problem for Atalanta, who have kept just one clean sheet in their last three matches across all competitions. They have also had some problems in attack with Duvan Zapata missing the first two matches with injury while Luis Muriel is currently sidelined with a muscle problem.
