Inter vs Atalanta - Match Preview
⚽ 27 May 2023 - 18:45 GMT +0
A Lautaro Martínez brace helped Inter Milan come from a goal down to beat Fiorentina 2-1 on Wednesday and win the Coppa Italia, with the Nerazzurri now able to extend the celebrations by avoiding defeat against Atalanta, which would confirm their top-four finish. Coach Simone Inzaghi acknowledged Inter’s priorities after Wednesday’s win indicating “We have the league again, and then Istanbul” where they face Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League final.
Although a 3-1 defeat to Napoli last matchday halted their five-game winning run in Serie A (SA), a return to the San Siro should fuel hopes of a revival. Inter have won their last two home league games and another victory here will make it the first top-flight season H2H double over Atalanta since 2014/15 after they won the reverse fixture 3-2.
Atalanta’s top-four hopes received a boost with a 3-1 win over Verona last Saturday aligning with Juventus’ ten-point penalty. Even still, La Dea’s destiny isn’t in their own hands and they could be out of the top-four reckoning if they fail to win here and AC Milan win against Juventus, owing to their poor H2H record with AC Milan. While a defeat here could see them drop out of the top-six altogether, four wins from their last six games (L2) suggest the visitors may be finding their feet at just the right time to keep their top-four hopes alive going into the final matchday.
They’ll need to break a poor away spell though, having failed to win here against Inter since March 2014, a run which included a 7-1 defeat in 2017, their heaviest loss in more than 50 years. At least recent form has been kinder, with only one defeat from their last four away trips (W2, D1) although they have already lost twice at the San Siro this campaign.
📋 Players to watch: Inter’s Romelu Lukaku has been in rich form across his last five league appearances (G6, A3), while Atalanta’s Luis Muriel will fancy getting in on the act himself given his solid personal record across 16 league H2Hs (G5, A3).
⚡ Hot stat: Ahead of this round, no side has scored fewer opening goals in the first 15 minutes than Atalanta’s two.
