Every game for third placed Inter seems to be a vital one at present. A win over Atalanta who are fifth in Serie A will qualify them for next season's Champions League. Failure to finish in the top four would leave them having to beat Manchester City in this season's Champions League to be in it next term. Midweek saw them come from behind to beat Fiorentina 2-1 in the Coppa Italia final. They'll be hoping for more goals from Lautaro Martinez who scored twice in the cup final. They now return to Serie A and with two games remaining are five points clear of their fifth placed opponents. Inter had a bad patch in March and April but had won five league games in a row before at Napoli in their most recent fixture. Home form has seen them beat second placed Lazio and Sassuolo in their last two league games. That followed three previous home league matches that had all been lost 1-0. They won the reverse fixture at Atalanta 3-2 and another win here will mean no last day decider at Torino. That's important as they can rest some players next week if Champions League qualification is confirmed this weekend.
Atalanta are three points behind Milan in the final Champions League qualifying position. With Milan at seventh placed Juventus this weekend, Atalanta will be hoping that might end in a draw. However, Atalanta have an inferior head-to-head record with Milan which won't help them if ending level on points with them. Atalanta had lost two successive league games before a 3-1 home win over Verona last weekend. Away form is the third best in Serie A with nine wins and five losses. Two of those defeats have come in the past five league fixtures. Half of their last eight away games in Serie A have seen them fail to get on the scoresheet. We back Inter to get a vital win here.
