A solid defensive team

So far, Atalanta’s defence has been outstanding, as they have conceded 12 goals. The number of goals that a team scores can sometimes give a misleading impression of performance. Atalanta have found the net 20 times (16 from open play and four penalties), but their performance at times this season has been average. This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Ademola Lookman (6), Teun Koopmeiners (4), and Rafael Toloi (1).

Atalanta are missing three players through injury or illness. This will affect Gian Piero Gasperini’s selection choices significantly.

Internazionale face his opponents with equal points, with both keen to make progress
