    The runaway Serie A leaders will be looking to take another step towards securing the Scudetto when another in-form team visit the San Siro in midweek.

    On Wednesday evening, frontrunners Inter Milan host Champions League chaser Atalanta, with both sides hoping to extend their respective unbeaten runs.

    Will Inter extend their lead at the summit to 12 points? Or could La Dea spoil the party? Keep reading to discover what Forebet’s algorithm predicts.

    Inter Milan head into Wednesday’s clash on the back of a 4-0 thrashing of Lecce, with Lautaro Martinez bagging a brace against the relegation strugglers.

    The Nerazzurri have now won each of their last 10 matches across all competitions, scoring over 2.5 goals on five occasions while keeping seven clean sheets.

    In Serie A, Inter’s unbeaten streak stands at 19 games – 16 wins and three draws – with their last league defeat coming all the way back in September.

    Trends also show that Simone Inzaghi’s men have scored at least one goal in each of their previous 33 Serie A encounters, highlighting their attacking prowess.

    It is worth noting, however, that Atalanta are enjoying an unbeaten run of their own, as they have avoided defeat in each of their last 10 matches across all competitions.

    Following last weekend’s 1-1 draw with AC Milan, La Dea have taken 20 points from a possible 24 since their most recent loss, which came just before Christmas.

    That said, Atalanta have struggled for consistency on the road in recent times, winning just one of their previous six away games in Serie A.

    Atalanta’s stats also show that they have conceded 16 goals in their last 11 away league outings, underlining their defensive struggles.

    Head-to-head: Thanks to a 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture back in November, Inter Milan have won each of their last four meetings with Atalanta across all competitions.

    Atalanta’s last win against Inter came back in 2018. Since then, the Nerazzurri have picked up six wins and five draws against La Dea.

    Team news: Inter are currently without injured quartet Francesco Acerbi, Juan Cuadrado, Stefano Sensi and Marcus Thuram, while Yann Sommer is ill.

    By contrast, Atalanta have reported no fresh injury problems ahead of Wednesday’s clash, meaning the visitors boast a clean bill of health.

    Not only have Inter won each of their last four matches against Atalanta, but they also find themselves 20 points clear of La Dea in the table.

    Forebet’s predictive analytics model expects Inter Milan to extend their hot streak on Wednesday, scoring over 1.5 goals on their way to victory.
