This will be the 121th Serie A match between Inter and Atalanta; Inter have 64 wins and 24 defeats in their 120 meetings so far (D32).

Inter have lost just one of their last nine Serie A games against Atalanta (W4 D4), keeping a clean sheet in five of these matches.

Atalanta have lost five of the last seven Serie A away matches against Inter (D2).

Inter haven’t lost against Atalanta in either of the last two Serie A seasons (W2 D2); the defending Italian champions are the only team that Atalanta have faced without winning in this time in the Italian top-flight.

Inter have won more home league games in 2021 than any other side in Europe’s big-five leagues (14), scoring 46 goals at an average of 3.3 per match in those wins.

Stefan de Vrij could make his 100th Serie A appearance for Inter, and in doing so he would become the fifth player of to reach this milestone for the club since the start of 2018/19 (his debut season with the team), after Samir Handanovic, Marcelo Brozovic, Lautaro Martínez and Milan Skriniar.

Inter’s Alessandro Bastoni made his Serie A debut for Atalanta under Gian Piero Gasperini, when Atalanta beat Sampdoria 1-0 in January 2017.
