Inter vs Atalanta by Enzo
Inter looked really well last weekend when the team outplayed Cagliari and celebrated convincing 5:1 victory without rising their eyebrows. Guests were stronger from the first minute, taking the double lead in 34th minute via Perisic and five minutes later via Banega, but the hosts managed to reduce the deficit towards the end of the halftime via Boriello.
However, it was only thing what the hosts did, as the players of Inter scored three more in the repetition and cruised to an easy victory, thanks to goals from Perisic again in 47th, Icardi from a penalty kick in 67th and Gagliardini in 89th minute. It was their third victory in last four matches in Serie A, as Inter continues to be just below the European positions, being now at sixth place, with a point less than fifth placed Atalanta and six points less than Champions League placed Napoli. Marcelo Brozovic is back in training after missing the previous game, but the match probably comes too soon for him since he remains with a injury problem.
Atalanta, on the other side, is really enjoying this season and you can't say much negative things about them, as the team comes from a goalless draw in front of own fans against Fiorentina last Sunday evening. The game itself wasn't very interesting one, but it must be said that the hosts were more concrete side and if any team deserved to score a goal, that would surely be players of Atalanta.
Even though many expected them to win, it still wasn't a negative result having in mind individual quality, as the team now stands with seven consecutive matches without defeat, having five victories and two draws in a run. They are at fifth position now with fifty-two points earned, being just five points below Champions League placed Napoli, but also with just a point more than sixth placed Inter that stands out of European places position. Defender Boukary Drame (10/0) and forward Aleksandar Pesic (6/0) are continuing to be out with calves injuries. Franck Kessie is back from suspension and will be employed in the midfield.
Inter is on a really good form and are looking like a real power in front of own fans, while I don't see Atalanta failing to score twice in a row. Team from Bergamo is playing really well on the road probably being relaxed with lack of pressure away from home and I see this match getting really interesting as the time progresses.
