The second place in Serie A is up for grabs, as Atalanta and Inter Milan bring their season to a close with this exciting final matchday. Third in the standings with 78 points, Atalanta will hope to warm up for their Champions League quarters against Paris Saint-Germain by finishing second in Serie A, a historical first if they do so. Inter are 2nd with 79 points and will look to finish second and take the confidence to Portugal for the Europa League fixtures.
Atalanta defeated Parma 2-1 in their latest league match extending their unbeaten run to 17 matches winning 13 and drawing two. They continue to be the free-scoring side of the division with 98 goals to their name already, although scoring just five in their last four league games. Impressively, Atalanta have won their last seven Serie A home games and have won 10 of their last 12 at this venue. Atalanta have scored 3+ goals in eight of their 18 Serie A home matches but in just one of their last four. Additionally, Atalanta have avoided defeat in nine of their last 10 Serie A head-to-heads at this venue, winning four and drawing five.
Inter have stitched together an unbeaten seven-match run, winning four and drawing three. Additionally, they have kept four clean sheets during this sequence and the ‘Nerazzurri’ have the best defence of the league having conceded only 36 goals. Scoring isn’t bad either with Inter scoring 2+ goals in six of their last seven matches. Away from home too, Inter have managed to remain unbeaten for five – winning three and drawing two. Regardless, Inter have been scoring goals consistently even on their travels – 2+ goals in each of their last five Serie A away matches.
Atalanta and Inter Milan have a lot to play for in this match – the winner will end up 2nd, while the loser will end up watching Napoli v Lazio with interest. Regardless, these two sides bring exciting forward line action to this match. Both teams scoring goals is in play and so is over 2.5 goals. We expect goals from both Inter and Atalanta in this match.
