※ Current Odds Date & Time: January 15th, 7:00 P.M. (EST)

It’s been a major improvement at the back for Inter after they started their Scudetto defense by giving up 12 goals in their first nine league fixtures of the season. They have since then conceded just four goals in 11 games and only Napoli (15) have allowed fewer goals this season.

The whole team deserves credit for the great defensive work, but goalkeeper Samir Handanovic really stands out with his stats. He’s the only goalkeeper in the league this season with an 80-plus save percentage. Keeping Atalanta at bay is one of the toughest tasks in football, but if anyone can do it then it’s the Inter No. 1.

Inter also have the best scoring record in the league with 51 goals scored and it’s going to be very tough to keep them from winning the title again. AC Milan are right behind them with a one-point deficit but the Rossoneri have also played a game more.

Atalanta are sitting fourth and it’s been another solid season for the side from Bergamo although they have left a lot of points on the board in home games.

Gian Piero Gasperini’s men were sitting on just one home win for a long time before bagging back-to-back victories in November. There have also been three draws and three defeats, and Atalanta’s home form definitely needs improvement in 2022 if they are going to hang on to their Champions League spot.

Unfortunately for Atalanta, they are forced to look for form against Inter with a weakened squad. Top scorer Duvan Zapata is out injured and the defense will be without Davide Zappacosta and Rafael Toloi.

La Dea always tends to concede goals and with a couple of big defensive pieces missing, it’s now going to be very difficult to keep Inter off the scoreboard. The Nerazzurri are closing in on a 12-month scoring streak in Serie A. The last time they failed to net at least once was on January 23, 2021 in a goalless draw with Udinese.
