Competition: Serie A Date: Sunday 23rd October 2016 Venue: Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia Kick-Off: 14:00 BST
Jasmin Kurtic is the only injury worry for the hosts, with Atalanta having Ervin Zukanovic available for selection once again- but he’s unlikely to regain his place immediately.
Inter’s only injury absentee is Andrea Ranocchia but they could also be without Antonio Candreva, who is in need of a rest.
After grabbing the headlines for the wrong reasons in the past week, Mauro Icardi will retain his spot- captain’s armband et al.
Atalanta have put together a decent run of form in the last three matches, winning two, and their draw against Fiorentina last week is regarded as a positive result. The hosts will be confident of continuing that form tomorrow against an Inter side surrounded with issues.
Having only taken the job in the summer, Frank de Boer is under pressure following two consecutive defeats in Serie A and three games without a win. The situation surrounding Mauro Icardi has certainly not helped but morale was boosted by a narrow 1-0 Europa League victory over Southampton on Thursday.
Inter’s lack of consistency makes it a difficult match to call but Atalanta will be pushed on by the home crown and Inter’s troubles, which makes a draw a likely outcome.
