Atletico Madrid is one goal behind after the first meeting against Inter Milan. Their hopes of reaching the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals are still alive, but on the other hand, there are Nerazzurri, last year’s finalists, who want to have another run at the European title. 

Before Betting on Atletico Madrid vs. Inter Milan

The Mattress Makers didn’t make a good intro for this matchup, losing to Cadiz in this weekend’s La Liga meeting. Though, truth to be told, this unit was focused more on the upcoming event against Inter, so they haven’t been quite motivated against the domestic rivals.

Still, this is the fourth game in the past five in which Atletico has not won and the seventh in the previous nine, which indicates their struggles and problems. They can’t be covered up anymore, especially all the issues in the back line, which produced one clean sheet in the last ten events. The only encouraging thing is that Atletico plays superbly at home, winning eight of the previous ten appearances, having a tie and a loss. 

Simone Inzaghi’s unit is fantastic, and we are free to say that they have already solved the Scudetto race, even though there is enough time until the end of the championship. At the moment, the Milan team has 13 consecutive victories, demolishing the rivals without any mercy.

Nerazzurri’s defense has been more than good, posting nine clean sheets in the previous 11 matches, which is fantastic and impressive. Even though Inzagi likes to attack and is by nature oriented towards offense, he added this quality to the team, making it even more versatile.
