Mario Pasalic is the midfielder who has scored the most goals from open play in the big five European leagues this season (eight) – however, Inter are the side against which the Atalanta player has played the joint-most games without scoring or assisting a single goal in Serie A (eight, level with Sampdoria).

Atalanta have been led by Duván Zapata and Mario Pasalic. Zapata is the side's top scorer with nine goals. Pasalic has been nearly as impressive with eight goals, including three match-openers.

Hosts Atalanta have three wins, three draws, and three losses this season in nine Serie A contests at home. With seven wins, two draws, and just one loss on their travels, Inter boast a fine away record in league away matches this campaign.

The Nerazzurri are looking to add to a five-match away unbeaten streak (W4 D1 L0). The last time they were defeated away was October 2021 against Lazio.

In their last six league matches, Atalanta have won four, drawn one and lost one. Inter, meanwhile, are unbeaten in 12 straight league matches this season.

Inter are unbeaten in the last six Serie A meetings against Atalanta, drawing four and winning two games – they have also kept a clean sheet in three of these matches.

Martínez has been the leading attacking threat for Inter, scoring on 11 occasions, including three match-opening goals. He ranks fourth among the league's top scorers in 2021/2022.

 

Inter are looking to score in 40 consecutive Serie A games, which would be only the third instance of a team doing so in the competition’s history (after Juventus, 44 in December 2017 and 43 in March 2014). Indeed, Inter are one of only two teams to have scored in 100% of their league games across the big five European leagues this term, along with Bayern Munich.

Simone Inzaghi is the only current Serie A manager to have won 8+ successive league games on two occasions within the last three campaigns - before Inter won eight in a row this season, Inzaghi oversaw an 11-win streak with Lazio between October 2019 and January 2020.
