Inter defeats Atalanta and returns to +6 from Milan – Seventh consecutive victory and first very important championship exam passed for Inter, who takes 3 very heavy points against Atalanta in the monday night of the 26th matchday, sending Milan back to -6 from the top. A success decided by Skriniar’s paw within a very balanced match, in which Conte’s team was super cynical in taking advantage of one of the few real opportunities that happened.

Bitter evening but only in terms of results, however, for the Goddess of Gasperini, who tried to do the race without being able to break through. The hosts leave the initiative to the Bergamo team, which also never renounces to press high to put the opposing ball carriers in difficulty. Conte’s men wait patiently trying to orchestrate some restarts, but they almost never manage to worry Sportiello, frightened only by his partner Romero, who in an attempt to anticipate Lukaku risks an incredible own goal.

The biggest opportunity happened in the 39th minute on Zapata’s head, who anticipates de Vrij on Malinovskyi’s corner calling Handanovic to answer. At the beginning of the second half, Inter unlocked it in the 54th minute thanks to an inactive ball situation, with Skriniar solving a scrum in the area by striking Sportiello with a shot at the edge of the post. The Goddess, however, does not want to give up and in the 68th minute scares the hosts again with Zapata, who controls and kicks from the edge touching the post to the right of Handanovic. In the last quarter of an hour the forcing of the people from Bergamo increases, who try everything to put the result back in balance, but not even one of the last chances with Pasalic’s quick turn finds the hoped for luck.
