Inter Milan Vs. Atletico Madrid: Preview

Team Form

Inter Milan have been in unstoppable form over the last of couple of months. The Nerazzurri are enjoying an eight-game winning run in all competitions and an unbeaten run of 26 matches. Their only defeat of the 2023-24 season came against Sassuolo back in September. Inter are coming into Tuesday’s game on the back of a thumping 4-0 victory over Serie A rivals Salernitana. Simone Inzaghi’s side are currently sitting at the top of the Serie A rankings with 63 points from 24 games. They are nine points clear of second-placed Juventus with a game in hand.

Atletico Madrid, meanwhile, have not been at their best this season. They beat Real Madrid 4-2 in the Copa del Rey Round of 16 but suffered a 1-0 defeat to Athletic Bilbao in the first leg of the semi-final. In La Liga, Diego Simeone’s men sit in fourth place, 11 points behind leaders Real Madrid. Atleti, however, are coming into the clash at San Siro on the back of a massive 5-0 victory over Las Palmas.


Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid have met just twice so far. They first crossed paths in the 2010 UEFA Super Cup. Los Rojiblancos came away with a 2-0 victory. Their next meeting was a friendly in the International Champions Cup. That time, Inter came out on top, securing a 1-0 win.

Inter Milan Vs. Atletico Madrid: Prediction

On paper, Atletico Madrid can hurt any team in Europe. They have a formidable attack, a capable midfield, and a solid backline. Unfortunately for Simeone, it has not clicked too often for him this season. Inter Milan, meanwhile, are playing with confidence and charisma, and at home, they will be a force to be reckoned with. We expect the visitors to put up a fight but do not think they will be able to end the hosts’ winning run.

We are backing Inter Milan to secure a 3-1 win in their Champions League Round of 16 first-leg meeting with Atletico this week.
