Inter Milan vs Atalanta Preview

by Philip Mboya on April 23, 2010

Inter should bag all the three points tomorrow when they face lowly Atalanta at the San Siro. With 4 games left to play, the Nerazzurri are 1 point behind leaders Roma who host 4th place Sampdoria at the Stadio Olimpico. All eyes will be on the Roma – Sampdoria fixture as any slip ups might very well end their title hopes.

Fresh from a 3-1 routing of Barcelona on Tuesday, ( brace yourselves because you will be hearing this for the rest of the season), Inter Milan should make light work of Atalanta. However, the Nerazzurri should be wary of underestimating the Orobici.

Atalanta defeated Fiorentina 2-1 last weekend to improve their chances of staying in the Serie A next season. Inter on the other hand are riding high after beating Juventus and Barcelona. Jose Mourinho’s three man attack that includes Eto’o, Milito and Pandev has finally clicked and Atalanta should prepare themselves for a tough fixture.

Here are a little stats to give you an overview of the match. Inter have won their last 24 games. Atalanta have been win less in their last 10 consecutive away games. When priced as the underdogs, Atalanta have failed to win 13 times – tomorrow’s match won’t be an exception. So as you can see, Atalanta are definitely up against it.

Mourinho will field a largely unchanged side while his opposite number Bortolo Mutti will be encouraged by the return of Ernesto Chevanton and Maximiliano Pellegrino. Mutti who has warned Inter that his side are not just making the numbers in the Serie A, will be heading to Milan with one aim on his mind, winning.

Atalanta does not stand a chance against Inter and i see the Nerazzzurri giving their fans another fabulous display of football to win the tie 3-1.
