Serie A Betting: Inter and Atlanta to serve up goals again


Atalanta 3.80, the draw 3.35, Inter 2.05 (BET and WATCH LIVE on Unibet TV from 19.45 GMT)

Serie A is back with a full programme of midweek fixtures, the first of which sees free-scoring Internazionale visit an Atlanta side comfortable in mid-table.

Inter restored a little order to their universe at the weekend, leapfrogging newly-promoted Verona with a deserved 4-2 win at San Siro.

Along the way they reminded us of both their strengths, and their flaws; they are the joint-most prolific team in the division, with 23 goals and 10 different scorers, but they have also conceded 11 goals in nine games.

Another high-scoring game could be in prospect at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia. Inter, who have not won away to Atalanta since April 2008, will once again be without the calming influence of Hugo Campagnaro in defence.

Their opponents, who did the double over Inter in two classic contests last season that produced a total of 12 goals, have sworn to attack. "It’s no good just to defend against a big team, because they can always score at least one goal," said the Atalanta manager Stefano Colantuono. "To get a result, we must try to score."

Best bet: Take over 2.5 goals at 1.85
