    Inter Backed to Beat Atalanta
    Sbonsi /

    A brace from Alexis Sanchez helped Inter Milan to a 2-1 win away at Parma in midweek, extending the club’s lead at the top of the Serie A table to 6pts.

    Atalanta were in action on Wednesday night, thrashing bottom of the table Crotone 5-1, and they now sit 4th on the same points as Juventus.

    Inter Milan haven’t lost against Atalanta in any of the duo’s last four encounters, but the pair did play out a 1-1 draw in November’s reverse league fixture.

    Both teams have scored in three of the last five meetings between these two clubs, so there is a good chance that there will be no clean sheets come the final whistle on Monday night.

    Inter Milan head into this game as the form favourites with five wins and one draw from their last six outings. Atalanta have secured five wins and one defeat from their last six fixtures but are expected to struggle against the title-favourites.

    Both teams have scored in two of both club’s last four outings in Serie A, while over 2.5 goals have been produced in each of the host’s last four matches.

    The home side have a clean bill of health and no suspended players ahead of Monday’s match, while Atalanta could be without the services of Viktor Kovalenko, Sam Lammers and Hans Hateboer due to injury.

    Atalanta sit 10pts behind Inter Milan as things stand but look like they will push for a top four finish this season.

    Inter Milan are the top goal scorers in Serie A this season by some margin and it is this scoring power that gives them the edge of the visitors.

    Inter Milan have scored exactly three goals in three of their last four league games and Atalanta have only failed to score in one of their last six outings, so we could see a final scoreline of 3-1 in the host’s favour on Monday.

    Lukaku and Martinez have formed an excellent partnership up-front for the hosts, but Atalanta are always a threat when Muriel leads the line. Goals are expected in this game, but Inter Milan are the favourites to secure all 3pts.
