Berat Djimsiti replaced the injured Palomino in the backline against Sampdoria, and the Albania international is set to retain his place in the side, with Gasperini expected to name an unchanged lineup.
These teams have been used to scoring goals in Serie A, and the prediction that it will happen again seems as logical as ever. In their last five h2h matches, both teams' scoring happened on three occasions. Since the restart of the season after the winter break, Atalanta played six matches, and in five of them, both teams scored a goal. The only club that hasn't scored against the Bergamo team was Sampdoria on Saturday. Atalanta ensured their participation in the quarterfinal stage of Coppa Italia by demolishing Spezia 5-2. Inter is a bit more defensive-minded, they had two BTTS games in their past five matches.
The Bergamo team beat Sampdoria 2-0 over the weekend to give themselves another positive result before the crunch Coppa Italia clash against Inter. They are undefeated after the winter break earning four wins with a couple of draw matches. It has been a long time since they lifted the Coppa Italia trophy, it was in 1963, the only time they won the competition. Jose Luis Palomino and Davide Zappacosta are injured for the Bergamo team.
