Atalanta v Inter Milan Preview And Betting Tips
One of the more interesting games to watch in the final week of Serie A as Atalanta welcome Inter Milan in a shoot-out for second place. Inter hold a one-point lead over their hosts so a draw for Antonio Conte’s team will be enough. Tipsters Form Labs guide you to where the value might lie with their betting preview and tips for the game.
A win here for either side will guarantee second place in the table and Atalanta start as favourites having won 15 of 19 unbeaten matches in all competitions since late January.
However, three of the four stalemates came within the last six outings as they’ve surrendered second place (at least temporarily) to Inter, though each draw did come on the road.
In designated home fixtures they’ve won eight on the bounce, including victories over the likes of Roma, Valencia, Lazio and Napoli, so will head into the final day full of confidence and look a smart play draw no bet.
Inter have found it hard to put any kind of a run together and last won three on the bounce in early February.
They’ve only won nine of 18 matches in all competitions since then, including defeats to Napoli, Lazio, Juventus and Bologna, though the latter are the only ones to beat the Nerazzurri in the past 13 of these.
Atalanta Draw No Bet
Inter may have beaten Napoli 2-0 at the Giuseppe Meazza last time out, following a 3-0 triumph away at Genoa, but we wouldn’t look to much into that as Gennaro Guttuso’s men have struggled badly on the road of late, with that result leaving the Neapolitans W1-D1-L3 on their travels throughout July.
The visitors have certainly been entertaining to watch since the restart. Their last 12 matches have featured at least three goals on 10 occasions and four or more in half of these, as this has been especially true away from home.
Inter’s last five on the road have all seen a minimum of three strikes, as three of the last four went above that threshold.
Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez are being pushed by a resurgent Alexis Sanchez for a starting spot, and though Martinez looks destined to leave for Barcelona at some point, he’ll no doubt be keen to add to his tally before departing.
Atalanta Draw No Bet
Atalanta may still be without top scorer Josip Ilicic, but with Duvan Zapata, Luis Muriel, Papu Gomez and Ruslan Malinovskiy all available, there’s no suggestion that Gian Piero Gasperini’s side will lack firepower.
Indeed, they were top scorers last term and are just two away from 100 league goals this season, while they’ve bagged at least two goals in 12 of 14 home games in all competitions since late November as they averaged exactly three per game over this spell.
Over 3.5 Goals
This looks set to be a cracker for the neutral then and previous encounters on the final day would appear to back that up strongly.
Over 2.5 Goals has landed in 73% of matches in game week 38 over the past 10 seasons, as well as Over 3.5 in 49%, compared to Over 2.5 in 49% for the rest of those seasons and Over 3.5 just 27% of the time.
