Between them, Atalanta and Inter have only suffered one league loss since mid-October, accumulating division-leading points of 27 and 32 points respectively from available 36 during this period.

Here’s everything you need to know about the enticing encounter between a couple of clubs that take free points.

While Remo Freuler is returning from suspension at a game, Gian Piero Gasperini was thoroughly pessimistic about the availability (or lack thereof) of two crucial members on his side; Dove Zapata and Robin Gosens.

Zapata is the most likely of the duo to overcome a groin injury but Gosens will almost certainly be out on Sunday night with a problem with the hamstring.

Inter have managed to weave through the campaign with a squad that is almost completely unharmed by injury or illness. Hakan Calhanoglu served his suspension last weekend and only the second string (at best) players Alex Cordaz and Martin Satriano are covid-absent.

Whether Simone Inzaghi willingly rotates her side after two draining hours in the middle of the week against Juventus remains to be seen.

You can read Inter’s expected lineup here.

At home and away, Inter have historically taken over their Lombard rivals, with 65 victories from 123 Serie A meetings against Atalanta (D33 L25). The Scudetto holders have done better in recent years as well.

Alongside an undefeated sequence of six matches against the Bergamo team, Inter Gasperini’s bogey team during his unrivaled reign with Atalanta. Sunday’s hosts have won just two of their 11 league meetings with their fellow Nerazzurri under Gasp, the lowest win rate (18%) they have registered against any club during his memorable period.

Both sides create chances in the big crowd, but Inter can lean on the second best back guard in Italy, with ten fewer goals conceded than the division’s perennial entertainer Atalanta.

However, there were some flickers of vulnerability in this backline during Inter’s latest Serie A outing against a team from Lazio that does not have the same firepower as Atalanta. In what may very well turn out to be a largely even competition, Inter are the more likely winners – but only narrowly.

Forecast: Atalanta 1-2 Inter
