Leading Inter and fifth-placed Atalanta from Bergamo, will meet tonight at 8.45 pm CET in last match of the 26th round of Italian Serie A, at Giuseppe Meazza stadium in Milan.

It should be a great game, two most efficient clubs in the league are meeting (62 and 60 goals scored), both of them are practically in the strongest line-ups, and in great shape. Both teams want to extend Serie A unbeaten streak, as home team have avoided defeat in nine consecutive matches, while visitors seek sixth straight game without a loss.

Inter is the first favorite for win the Scudetto this season, team of coach Antonio Conte plays great football, has no more European obligations and its concentration is maximum for every league game. Conte has no problems with the line-up, he actually has 'sweet worries' about who to send on pitch from the first minute.

The attacking power of Romelu Lukaku has been crucial for Inter this season. He is the team’s top scorer with 18 goals, which is the second highest in the league’s scoring charts, six of those having been the critical first of the match. He will most likely be joined by Chilean Alexis Sanchez, who scored both goals in the last round away win against Parma (2:1). Two extremely offensive defenders are Hakimi and actually winger Perišić, and Barella and Eriksen are also expected in the middle of pitch.

- I don’t think that there is any doubt that we can win with the team, the structure must then get the most out of each player, and try to provide them with the best chances. We studied the match against Atalanta, it’s our fourth match against them since I arrived at Inter, so they know us and we know them. We are coming up against a team that make it hard for everyone, in both the Champions League and the Serie A, where they have won the most against the big sides. It’s a clear reality, they are well aware of their abilities and their strong players, be they starting players or substitutes, such as Muriel who comes on so often and makes a huge impact in tough games. Gasperini is doing an amazing job, and the team follows him. It will be a very difficult game because they have caused problems for all of the big sides. We will have to perform well and be resilient, so we can punish them when we are in possession - said Inter coach Antonio Conte, and his team have been tough to beat at stadium Giuseppe Meazza this season with 10 wins, one draw, and just one loss in 12 Serie A contests. Nerazzurri are in the midst of a 10-match home unbeaten streak (W9 D1 L0) dating to October 2020. against Parma.

Atalanta has made huge progress in the last two, as well as this season, where it has already reached the finals of the Italian Cup, and is equally fighting for fourth place in Serie A and placement in the Champions League.

Coach Gian Piero Gasperini has created a team that can really beat anyone, and Atalanta’s tactics are always offensive. Their idea today will be how to score, not how to defend, and except for the long-injured right back Hateboer, all the most important players are available to Gasperini, who is planning a 3-4-2-1 formation with Zapata at the top of the attack, who is scored nine goals in the league this season.

Atalanta have scored 12 goals in the last four consecutive victories in Serie A, and as a guest this season they have seven wins, four draws, and only one loss, and in 12 away games they have scored 25 goals. Club from Bergamo will be out to extend a nine-match away unbeaten streak (W5 D4 L0). They haven't been defeated away since October 2020. against Napoli.

- Tomorrow a match awaits us that can say a lot about our condition and our moment. We meet the first in the standings. Inter have deservedly acquired this advantage and is the first candidate to win the Championship. Two very good teams face each other. In my team everyone is fine right now. There is a good climate, a good confidence, a good environment. We are a team that has room for improvement and that can still grow. The last matches with Inter have generally been very good, beyond the results themselves. Last year we had a good draw in Milan, tomorrow will be another test - said Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini.

This is a match that will pass in a strong rhythm of attacks and there will certainly be a lot of chances and shots. Although of the last six matches of these two clubs, only one brought more than two goals in total, this time we bet that at least three will be scored, because the offensive potential of Inter and Atalanta is fantastic this season.
