Best odds: 12/5
Inter Milan welcome Atalanta to the San Siro stadium on Sunday in what is likely to be the derby of the round in the Serie A.
The Nerazzurri have had a season full of ups and downs, both on and off the pitch. They have a lot of quality across the team, but one thing they can’t seem to find is consistency. Just as they started looking good following their win in the Milan Derby, they got knocked out of the Europa League by Eintracht Frankfurt and lost their last home game to Lazio.
Head coach Luciano Spalleti is finally able to count on former captain Mauro Icardi following disciplinary issues which arose over new deal negotiations. The striker marked his return to the team with a successfully converted penalty in Inter’s 0-4 win away to Genoa a few days ago.
Meanwhile, striker Lautaro Martinez and defender Stefan de Vrij have both returned from international duty injured, and are likely to miss a few games more.
The team from Bergamo are having a fantastic season. They’ve been, as the saying goes, punching above their weight and it got them right behind the top four, battling it out with the likes of AS Roma and Lazio at the moment.
They sit just one point below AC Milan in fourth, and with eight games still to play, they will fancy their chances of making a surprise Champions League appearance next season.
Coach Gian Piero Gasperini has no significant players missing.
Games like this one are never easy to get right. But it is to be expected that Inter will want to put a stop to their recent poor home results, while Atalanta have come where they are by playing an attacking brand of football. Only Serie A leaders Juventus have scored more goals. Anything can happen, but a share of the spoils may just be the best bet.
