Andrea Stramaccioni takes an injury-hit squad to face Atalanta, where Inter will almost certainly need all three points to keep within a point of Juventus.
Oh where, oh where have the little goals gone? They've gone, they're gone, away to other sides. Atalanta have just 10 goals thus far, beating out only Palermo and Pescara. At least Pescara have the excuse that their scorers were woo'd away by other clubs -- as for la dea, it seems Germán Denis has simply forgotten how to get the ball in the back of the net.
But if they're going to get a goal against Inter, this is the week to do so. Andrea Stramaccioni is without two of his trusty center backs, with both Andrea Ranocchia and Walter Samuel out with injury. That puts a bit of a wrinkle in Strama's back three, which has been quite effective this season. But with only Juan Jesus and Matías Silvestre healthy, it'll almost half to be a back four, unless Esteban Cambiasso drops into the three.
Considering it's almost a certainty that Juventus will beat Pescara, the nerazzurri head to Bergamo knowing they've got to score, particularly with this unstable defense. Fortunately, Diego Milito, Antonio Cassano and Rodrigo Palacio are all healthy, so goals are practically inevitable. A win over Atalanta means Inter can, at the least, maintain their pace, staying just one point behind Juve.
