Looking at Inter Milan vs Atalanta Bergamo, 3rd place Inter Milan will host 5th place Atalanta on Sunday. Inter need to avenge the bitter defeat of the previous meeting if they want to further solidify their position in the top four.
At the first meeting of the season, Inter fell 1-4 at Atalanta. Inter only scored one goal through a Mauro Icardi penalty , and lost Marcelo Brozovic who was rewarded with a second yellow card at the end of the match. Four Atalanta goals were scored by Hans Hateboer, Gianluca Mancini, Berat Djimsiti and Alejandro Gomez.
Inter's chances of winning at the Giuseppe Meazza are quite open. Inter have been reinforced by Icardi, who had disappeared long after being removed as captain of La Beneamata . Meanwhile, Atalanta had to lose one of his best attackers, namely Duvan Zapata.
In his last match, Inter beat host Genoa four goals without reply. Icardi immediately contributed one goal and one assist after returning from 'exile'.
When Inter beat Genoa, Atalanta won 4-1 over Bologna. Josip Ilicic contributed two goals, while the other Atalanta goals were scored by Hans Hateboer and Zapata. But Zapata received his fifth yellow card in Serie A 2018/19.
Zapata, who has always contributed goals and / or assists in his last four appearances for Atalanta in Serie A (3 goals, 1 assist ), has accumulated cards and must miss Inter.
Losing Zapata, who has scored 20 goals in Serie A this season, is definitely a big loss for Atalanta. But this is good news for La Beneamata .
