Atalanta v Inter Milan Preview, Serie A, Tuesday October 29th 2013

Atalanta head into this game having lost 1-0 away against Sampdoria over the weekend which saw a run of three successive victories for Stefano Colantuono’s side come to an end and with both Lazio and Parma having won their matches, Atalanta have now started to fall down the Serie A League table and will be looking to get at least something from this game on tuesday night.

Inter Milan put a run of three matches without a win behind them in their game over the weekend after beating Hellas Verona 4-2 at home and have now joined Roma as the joint top goalscorers of the Serie A. However, unless they can start defending a bit better then it does seem like Walter Mazzarri’s side are going to struggle to be involved in the title race and this is a must win game for them on tuesday night if they are to keep those hopes alive.

Atalanta v Inter Milan Head to Head Statistics

Tuesday night’s game from the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia will become the 31st meeting between the two clubs over the years from which Atalanta have managed 6 wins, Napoli have managed 17 wins and there has been 7 draws.

The previous 5 meetings between the two clubs as shown in our head to head statistics table below show Atalanta having the slight advantage having won 2 with Inter Milan having won just the 1 and the remaining 2 games having finished all square.

Average Goals Per Game?

87 goals have been scored in the previous 30 meetings between the two clubs which provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 2.90 which suggests we should see at least a couple of goals scored during this game on tuesday night.

Atalanta surprisingly have the advantage on the recent form stats having won 3 of their previous 5 matches played with Inter Milan managing just 2 victories from their last 5.

Atalanta were playing some decent stuff up until their defeat over the weekend away against Sampdoria and now with home advantage where they have a good record against Inter Milan over recent years, they will be confident of bouncing back to winning ways, although the online bookmakers don’t agree and currently have the hosts priced up at a best price of 3/1 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) to win this game.

The Draw has only happened once in the previous five games played between the two clubs, but with Inter Milan having a whole host of injuries to their some of their top players, I can certainly see this game having a chance of finishing all square on tuesday night and at a best price of 23/10 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) this could be a sensible cover play here.

Inter Milan have only managed to beat Atalanta once in their last six meetings and with most of their top players still out injured they do look a bit on the short side to win this game at odds of 11/10 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers).

A lot of people will probably have this down as a banker away win on tuesday night, but I like to take a good look at the stats before making a decision and with Atalanta having clearly been a thorn in Inter Milan’s side over the last few years and having home advantage I can easily see this game causing some what of a shock result.

Before their defeat at the weekend away against Sampdoria, Atalanta were on a three game winning run and had beaten such sides like Udinese, Lazio and Chievo so I can’t see why they can’t beat an under strength Inter Milan side who continue to leak goals at the back and for me their price of 3/1 on offer does look the value play here.

However, Inter Milan were pretty impressive with their 4-2 victory over the weekend against Hellas Verona who were unbeaten in their last four matches until then and with a certain Rodrigo Palacio leading the attack up front they are going to score goals, so to completely write off the chances of the visitors would be a mistake.

The average goals per game stats suggest this game will see at least a couple of goals and with Inter Milan having trouble in keeping clean sheets, I do see Atalanta scoring at least one on tuesday night in front of their home fans, so the sensible option from a betting point of view does seem to be something related to the goals market.
