After starting the New Year at the top of the Serie A table, Inter will be looking to extend their stay at the top as they host side Atalanta at the San Siro Stadium. The match is scheduled for 11th January, with kickoff at 22:45 GMT.
Inter Milan 3-1 win over rivals Napoli ensured they continued to stay at the top of the Serie A table. A brace from in-form Lukaku and Martinez was able to seal the nail on the coffin for the Italian giants. However, there is still fierce competition from the Old Lady, who is second tied with points.
Coach Antonio Conte is keen on various addition to the squad, especially with the opening of the January transfer window. There have been several talks of some potential moves to the club which has steamed the race for the Serie A title.
Atalanta is currently 5th on the Serie A table with 34 points. Coach Gasperini has enjoyed a return to the top tier teams with a series of impressive performances. However, the side is one point clear from Roma with 35 points.
However, the side has to face stiff competition from the Inter side, which has a well-rounded rounded with a couple of injury boost. Will Gasperini pave the way for Juventus to return to the top of the table with an upset win?
