Atalanta vs Inter Full Match Reports
Inter Milan emerged victorious in their brief sojourn to the Gewiss Stadium, where they vanquished Atalanta with a 2-1 triumph, securing their fifth consecutive away win in this Serie A season.
Heading into the match, Inter Milan boasted an impressive record of not conceding a single goal in their four previous away league fixtures. However, in Bergamo, they faced formidable opponents in Atalanta, who likewise had an unblemished record of not conceding a goal in their four home league matches this season. The opening stages of the encounter were fiercely contested, and it wasn’t until the 21st minute that the first genuine goal-scoring opportunity materialized. Davide Zappacosta lofted a ball into the box that the Inter defense struggled to clear, and Matteo Ruggeri was poised at the back post to volley the chance, but it narrowly missed the target.
Inter Milan found it challenging to establish control over the match, and their prospects dimmed further near the half-hour mark when Benjamin Pavard was forced off the pitch on a stretcher after an awkward landing that appeared to injure his knee. His substitute, Matteo Darmian, made an immediate impact as he was brought down in the penalty area by Juan Musso. Despite vehement protests from the Atalanta players and their coach, Gian Piero Gasperini – which resulted in a yellow card for the coach – the referee’s decision stood. Hakan Çalhanoğlu stepped up to take the penalty and rifled the ball into the net, granting Inter the lead as they headed into halftime.
Simone Inzaghi’s squad emerged revitalized after the break, generating several scoring opportunities. The first of these came when Federico Di Marco unleashed a powerful long-range shot that narrowly missed the top corner. Lautaro Martínez appeared to have scored from Francesco Acerbi’s cross, but the goal was disallowed for offside. Nevertheless, the Argentine forward was not disheartened and managed to double Inter’s lead just minutes later, before the hour-mark. The visitors pressed high up the field, won possession, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan provided a sublime pass to Inter’s captain, Martínez, who delivered an exquisite finish into the far corner, marking his 12th league goal of the season.
Atalanta retaliated within five minutes, mirroring Inter’s second goal by pressing the visitors high up the field. Ademola Lookman won the ball and slotted it across the box to Gianluca Scamacca, who hammered in a first-time finish. The home side continued to threaten Yann Sommer’s goal, with the Swiss goalkeeper making crucial saves from Lookman and Luis Muriel. Inter managed to weather the Atalanta storm and secure the victory, aided by the fact that the home side was reduced to ten men in the closing minutes after Rafael Tolói received a second yellow card. This victory provides Inter with a five-point lead over second-placed Juventus, who will visit Florence to face ACF Fiorentina tomorrow.
