Sides Clash in Quarterfinals of Coppa Italia

It seems that the race for the Italian Serie A title is over. Napoli are atop the standings with 53 points, 13 more than Inter Milan. Things are completely different in the Coppa Italia. First, Napoli were eliminated in the Round of 16. Second, Inter Milan are the betting online favorites to win the domestic cup for the second year in a row at +350.

The Nerazzurri will face a tough test in the quarterfinals since Atalanta haven’t lost in their last six matches in all competitions. I can assure you that it will be a back-and-forth battle.

Let’s check the latest Coppa Italia news, stats, injury reports, and Serie A lines for Inter Milan vs Atalanta. We’ve got plenty of Coppa Italia picks for you to consider.

Inter Milan: Back to the Winning Column

After losing 1-0 to Empoli at San Siro, Inter Milan were desperate for a victory. Luckily for them, Lautaro Martinez is on fire. Last Saturday, the Argentine scored a brace to lead them to victory against Cremonese. The game ended 2-1, meaning our soccer betting prediction of Inter winning and both teams scoring was fulfilled.

Martinez has scored 14 goals in all competitions, including the equalizer against Parma in the previous round of the Coppa Italia. That’s right, if it wasn’t for Martinez, the Nerazzurri wouldn’t be playing on Tuesday. He scored the equalizer against Parma in the 88th minute, which sent the game into overtime. Francesco Acerbi scored the winning goal in the 110th minute.

Besides Martinez, Inter’s attacking unit includes Edin Dzeko, Joaquin Correa and Romelu Lukaku. The team has scored 40 goals in the Serie A. Only Napoli have scored more with 48. That’s basically why the Nerazzurri dominate the odds board with a -110 price. Their 9-0-2 home record (Serie A and Coppa Italia) also has a lot to do with that.

Finally, this is the ninth straight season in which Inter are playing the Coppa Italia quarterfinals. They advanced to the semifinals in the last three.

Atalanta: Lookman Leading the Way

If Inter Milan have Lautaro Martinez, Atalanta have Ademola Lookman, who has scored 12 goals in the Serie A and two in the Coppa Italia. Most recently, he scored in Atalanta’s 2-0 victory over Sampdoria, which allowed them to climb up to fourth place in the Serie A.

Regarding the Coppa Italia, Lookman scored a brace in the 5-2 victory over Spezia. Atalanta were the only team that scored more than two goals in the Round of 16. Besides Lookman, Hans Hateboer, Rasmus Hojlund and Ethan Ampadu (own goal) also scored.

Atalanta are 8-3-2 when playing on the road in all competitions. That record combined with the +300 price they’re offering in the sportsbook to win straight up make them a very tempting underdog.

The visitors have scored 39 goals in the Serie A, only one less than Inter Milan, while they’ve allowed 23 –- three less than the Nerazzurri. In other words, we’re talking about a well-balanced squad that’s not afraid of anything or anyone, especially when there’s a trophy on the line. Atalanta reached the Grand Finale in two of the last four editions but failed to claim the title. They’re eager to win it for the first time since the 1962-63 season.

Inter Milan vs Atalanta Head-to-Head

  • Previous Matches: 129
  • Inter Milan Victories: 69 (225 goals)
  • Atalanta Victories: 25 (119 goals)
  • Draws: 35

These two met right before the break for the 2022 World Cup in what ended up being a goal-fest. Lookman scored the opener for Atalanta, but Dzeko scored the equalizer before the end of the first half. Dzeko scored again in the second to put Inter ahead. The Nerazzurri increased their advantage thanks to Jose Palomino, who scored an own goal. Curiously enough, Palomino also scored Atalanta’s second goal.

Another curious fact is that Atalanta didn’t get a single yellow card while Inter finished with three.
