Prediction and odds for the game: Atalanta (15/8) vs Inter (13/10)
We are backing the away win
When: Sunday 16 January 2022, Kick-off 19:45
Where: The Gewiss Stadium
On Sunday night, Atalanta and Inter do battle at the Gewiss Stadium, in what promises to be the game of the weekend in the Italian top-flight.
The boys from Bergamo look to have overcome a slight wobble in their last two games of 2021 to get back on track in 2022. Gian Piero Gasperini’s team have recorded a 6-2 win at Udinese in Serie A and last time out defeated Venezia 2-0 at the Gewiss Stadium in the Coppa Italia.
When it comes to Serie A, Atalanta have lost just one of their last 13 matches in the Italian top-flight, while also claiming victories in five of their last eight outings in the league. They have also been potent in front of goal, scoring at least two goals in 12 of their last 16 matches in Serie A.
Atalanta’s home form in Serie A has been patchy, to say the least of late, as the Nerazzurri have claimed just two wins in their last seven league games at the Gewiss Stadium.
Gasperini’s team could be without top scorer Duvan Zapata, who is a doubt due to injury. The Colombian forward has scored nine goals in Serie A this season.
The Nerazzurri have really become a relentless force in recent months. Simone Inzaghi’s team are undefeated in 12 matches in the Italian top-flight, having claimed eight straight league victories. The good run of form has ensured that the visitors have stayed top of the table. They are now a point ahead of arch-rivals Milan, who have played a game extra.
Inter have combined solid defensive displays, with dangerous attacking play in Serie A of late. The Nerazzurri have kept six clean sheets in seven league matches while scoring at least two goals in seven of their previous eight games in the Italian top-flight.
On their travels, Inter have lost just one of their last 11 away matches in Serie A, having recorded three straight wins away from home. A 5-0 away win at Salernitana last time out on their travels means that Inter have won three consecutive away games in Serie A. They have scored at least two goals in all three wins on their travels, while also keeping three straight clean sheets.
This has the potential to be one of the games of the Serie A season. Atalanta’s home record and Inter’s general form are leading us to back the visitors to record another victory in Bergamo.
We do believe it will be a high-scoring game, so we are also backing over 2.5 goals scored, as both teams are potent, even if Atalanta may be missing Zapata.
Our Tips: We are backing the home win at odds of 13/10 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 8/13. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
