Inter Milan vs Atletico Madrid: Tips, predictions & odds

Inter Milan hope to extend their winning streak when they host Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League tie at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Tuesday.

Inter Milan vs Atletico Madrid Predictions

Inter Milan to win - 3/4

Inter Milan put in another dominant performance as they thrashed Salernitana 4-0 on Friday to make it eight wins on the spin in all competitions, and they can add a ninth to their impressive tally when they host Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.

Simone Inzaghi’s side already have one hand on the Serie A title, sitting nine points clear of Juventus with a game in hand. 

They have by far the best attacking and defensive records in the Italian top flight and can now afford to focus the vast majority of their attention on the Champions League that so agonisingly eluded them last season, where they were narrowly beaten by Manchester City in Istanbul.

Last year’s finalists went unbeaten in the group stage this time around and have lost just once inside 90 minutes this season. 

You have to look all the way back to September to find that defeat and they have won 26 of their 34 competitive matches overall, including winning their last eight by an aggregate scoreline of 21-4.

Atletico Madrid also enjoyed an emphatic weekend win but star striker Alvaro Morata was a notable absentee from their matchday squad against Las Palmas and the Spain international is set to miss out again following his injury against Sevilla last week.

Morata, who has scored 19 goals for Atletico Madrid this season and five in six in the Champions League, will be a huge miss for this trip to Italy and that significantly boosts the hosts’ chances of first-leg success.

Los Colchoneros have only won one of their last four games and, with five defeats in their last ten away games in all competitions, the hosts look good value to clinch a crucial first-leg victory.

Lautaro Martinez to score anytime - 13/8

Inter Milan’s success this season has been a group effort but there have been standout performers and one such key figure is Lautaro Martinez. 

The 26-year-old leads the Serie A goalscoring charts by a significant distance, netting 20 times in 22 league appearances and leading second-placed Dusan Vlahovic by seven goals.

The Argentina international added a further two goals in the Champions League group stages and another one in the Italian Super Cup, meaning he has now averaged a goal every 104 minutes for Inter Milan this season.

His goal against Salernitana on Friday made it six goals across his last eight appearances in all competitions. 

These two sides last met in the friendly International Champions Cup in 2018 and Lautaro Martinez scored the only goal of the game in that tie so, at 13/8, he looks a good bet to find the net against an Atletico Madrid side that have shipped 18 goals in their last ten away games.

Inter Milan to win 1-0 - 5/1

Inter Milan have conceded just 12 goals in 24 league games this season and they can produce another shutout when Atletico Madrid come to visit on Tuesday.

The hosts have won by a 1-0 scoreline in three of their last five games in all competitions and three of their last four wins in the Champions League have been by the same scoreline. 

An incredible 19 of their 25 competitive wins this season have been accompanied by a clean sheet - seven of those have been narrow 1-0 margins of victory.

Atletico Madrid’s last away game was a 1-0 defeat in Sevilla and two of their last three in all competitions have seen them lose by a 1-0 scoreline, so back the Nerazzurri to edge this one in Milan.
