Atalanta vs Inter Milan betting tips, preview and prediction
April 12, 2018
A huge opportunity presents itself to Inter Milan this weekend and the failure to take it would result in them being branded the biggest bottlers in Italy. One point outside the Champions League places, a win at Atalanta would guarantee a return to the top four. Lazio and Roma, third and fourth respectively, are level on points (one ahead of Inter) and duel this weekend.
Recent results won’t fill Inter fans with confidence, the club picking up one point from the last six available. Although that hardly tells the story of their dominance in the draw with Milan and defeat to Torino. Despite having one of Europe’s sharp-shooters in their ranks (Mauro Icardi has 24 goals in Serie A this season) they struggle to convert the chances that they create.
From the 361 shots that they’ve taken this season, 50 have gone in. That’s a conversion rate of 13.9%, the tenth-best in the division. Of course, they have had little trouble converting chances against Atalanta in recent years. They’ve put nine past them over their last two meetings.
