Both the teams will be looking to make it three consecutive wins in a row
Matchday 11 in the Serie A awaits a heavyweight clash between Atalanta and Inter Milan at the Gewiss Stadium. While La Dea are maintaining their form from last season and are charging for a fourth or higher finish this season, Inter sit comfortably at the top having lost only one game.
Atalanta dominated their last game, winning 3-0 against Empoli, showcasing their strength this season. They could become a major contender if they can rack up more of the similar performances in their upcoming games. However, their next challenge is against the league leaders, Inter Milan. Inter also won their last game against Roma,1-0, which was a harder challenge.
So, the upcoming clash is a one to watch for, if one is a Serie A viewer- or even a football enthusiast. There’s a lot on stake, and it promises to bring a usual top-of-the-table clash feel to it.
