Result: 0:0 LOST


A battle for Europe is on the cards in Serie A (SA) as Atalanta (eighth) and Inter Milan (fifth) look to get back to winning ways and maintain their qualification campaigns.
Top-six hopes are fast fading for Atalanta, who start this round four points adrift of Inter who are still catchable with seven games remaining; but with just one point in their last two games, the hosts’ home form sees them with just three wins from ten games.
Inter have just one point in their last two games and have dropped down the table to fifth position. With just one point separating them from the third-placed Lazio, Inter can still qualify for the Champions League. However, with late challenges coming from Fiorentina, Sampdoria and their hosts today, Inter need a win here to allay fans’ fears of capitulation.
Two defensively tight sides meet here as Inter (22 goals) have conceded the third-least number of goals in SA while Atalanta (34 goals) have conceded the seventh least. With just one of Atalanta’s last five home games witnessing over 2.5 goals, this could be a game of limited goals.
The visitors have conceded more than one goal only once in 15 away games. But with just one win in eight away games (W1, D4, L3), Inter have made a departure from their early season away form that saw them unbeaten in seven (W5, D2).
Players to watch: With one goal and two assists, Alejandro Gomez’s efforts have given Atalanta their last two wins.
Mauro Icardi (INT) has five goals in his last two encounters against Atalanta.
Stat attack: Atalanta have just one win in their last seven encounters against Inter (W1, D1, L5), but have lost only once at home in eight games (W3, D4, L1).
Inter have conceded just one goal in their last six games.
