Thus, according to Adam Riese, both teams are separated by 3 points. In recent years, the offensive has been the sanctuary of the Bergamaschi.

Inter Form & Balance Check
Inter Milan had to cope with a small upheaval before this season. Because in addition to champion coach Antonia Conte, star striker Romelu Lukaku also left the club. Nobody knew how the Milanese would cope with these setbacks. Now, after 5 games played, everyone is smarter. They practically didn’t even notice that the two of them were gone. Because Inter is picking up exactly where they left off last season. In the 5 league duels, Simone Inzaghi’s men have already managed 4 wins and a draw with a total of 18:5 goals, making the offensive as strong as never before. Moreover, the new arrivals like Edin Dzeko and Hakan Calhanoglu are working without any start-up time. The only defeat so far was in the top flight. There, the Milan team was beaten 1:0 by Real Madrid. Despite this, Inter are in excellent form and are well on the way to defending their title.
A clear statement
The fact that Inter Milan are very strong this season, sweeping smaller opponents like Bologna off the pitch with 6:1, has been impressively proven by them. In the Champions League, however, it became clear that it was not quite enough for the big opponents. The question then arose whether Milan could also win against direct rivals in the domestic league. With their last game, they made a clear statement in this regard. On Tuesday evening, they hosted Florence and showed what they are capable of. After a relatively early deficit, the Nerazurri didn’t let it get them down and turned the game around. In the end, the Milanese scored a deserved 3:1 away win. So now everyone knows that Inter can also do it against the big boys.
Inter facts & analysis
– Inter unbeaten in the league so far
– Only defeat in the CL against Real Madrid
– Departures of Conte and Lukaku well absorbed
– Set an example against direct rivals Florence
Atalanta Form & Balance Check
Even though the Bergamaschi’s offense is still faltering a bit, they have started this season very confidently. Gian Piero Gasperini and his men have already picked up 10 points from their first 5 games, putting Atalanta in 4th place in the table. Despite the fact that Bergamo never scored more than 2 goals in any match, they still managed to win against Torino, Sassuolo and Salernitana. Against Bologna, the Bergamaschi did not manage more than a 0:0 and against their direct rivals from Florence, they suffered their first defeat of the still young season on matchday 3. In the Champions League, Atalanta were not yet completely convincing. Against Europa League winners Villareal, they only managed a 2:2 draw. This weekend against Inter, Robin Gosens and Co will have to improve their performance in order not to go down completely.
De Roon with good will
The relaxations of the Corona bans are pleasing everyone. That includes Marten De Roon, who had something very special in mind. To celebrate being able to mingle with fans again, the Bergamo midfielder thought he would spend a day waiting for fans in the supporters’ shop. Moreover, he would have paid for the purchase of anyone who bought a jersey with his flocking. However, things turned out differently than expected. The rush of fans was very limited and nobody bought such a jersey, which meant that De Roon passed the time by doing puzzles and playing cards. At the end of the day, he had not been able to do anything good for any fan and the well-intentioned campaign went down the drain. De Roon himself only said that something like this would never have happened to Leo Messi.
Atalanta Facts & Analysis
– Relatively good start to the season for Bergamo
– Only lost against Florence so far
– The offense is not running as it should yet
– Also in the CL so far without victory
Predicted line-up – last update on 24 September 2021
Based on the results on the last matchday, no coach is likely to change anything in the starting line-up. Inter, in the person of Simone Inzaghi, will send the same eleven men to the pitch as they did in the 3-1 win over Florence. Gasperini, on the other side, also has little reason to change anything compared to the game against Sassuolo.
