Prediction and odds for the game: Atalanta (6/5) v Inter (2/1)
We are backing the home win
When: 1st August 2020, Kick-off 19:45
Where: The Gewiss Stadium
On Saturday night, Atalanta host Inter at the Gewiss Stadium, in one of the biggest games of the final weekend of season 2019/20 in Serie A.
The home team have been one of the most impressive teams in the Italian top-flight. Gian Piero Gasperini’s team are third-place in the table, just one point behind the visitors, who are second place in the Italian top-flight.
Atalanta head into this clash 17 games undefeated in Serie A, having recorded 13 victories in the process. Last time out, Gasperini’s team recorded a 2-1 win at Parma, which ended a run of low-scoring games in Serie A for the Nerazzurri, as their previous three league games produced under 2.5 goals.
They have been a formidable force on home soil of late in the Italian top-flight, as the Nerazzurri are undefeated in their last eight league matches at the Gewiss Stadium, having recorded an impressive seven straight wins.
Atalanta may be the league’s leading scorers, but they have also impressed in defence in recent home matches, conceding just once in their last four league games on home soil.
One negative for the boys from Bergamo is that they have found Inter to be tough opposition of late, as they have beaten the men from Milan just once in the last meetings between the pair.
The outer Nerazzurri may have failed with their bid to dethrone perennial Scudetto winners Juventus, but they will feel that finishing as ‘best of the rest’ in the Italian top-flight is not a terrible result this season in Antonio Conte’s debut campaign as head coach. They only need a draw in this clash to finish as runners up this season.
Inter heads into this game on the back of a seven-game unbeaten run in the Italian top-flight, having recorded four wins and three draws. A good defensive record has been the key to Inter’s recent good league run, as the Nerazzurri have kept clean sheets in four of their last five Serie A.
The visitors have been in decent away form of late in the Italian top-flight, as they are undefeated in five matches on their travels in Serie A, winning on three occasions and drawing twice. Conte’s team have been prolific on the road in the Italian top-flight, having scored at least twice in their last five league matches on their travels.
This game has the potential to be a superb spectacle between two of the most exciting teams in the Italian top-flight. Both teams head into this game in decent league form, but we are backing Atalanta to come out on top in this clash. Considering two teams attacking displays this season, we are also backing over three goals to be scored.
Verdict: We are backing the home win at odds of 6/5 and/or over three goals scored at odds of 13/10. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
