The Italian leader Internazionale did not succeed in expanding the lead on a visit to Atalanta. Against the club from Bergamo, the Milanese team did not go further than 0-0. This is how a series of eight won league games came to an end and AC Milan can take over the first place on Monday.
The midfielders Teun Koopmeiners and Marten de Roon started in the base at Atalanta, where Hans Hateboer was missing in the match selection. Inter coach Simone Inzaghi had no place for the Dutch Stefan de Vrij and Denzel Dumfries in the starting eleven. They did fall in.
The start of the game was for Atalanta, but later in the first half Inter had the slightly better chances. There were not many really great possibilities. After the break, both teams came closer to scoring the opening goal. Edin Džeko missed on a pass from Dumfries who had just come in. Inter-keeper Samir Handanovic, on the other hand, prevented a goal with a few good saves. De Vrij came in with ten minutes to go.
Inter remains first, but can be passed by fellow townsman AC Milan on Monday. The current number 2 will then try to make up for the 2 point deficit against Spezia. Atalanta is fourth.
