This match will be played on 13/03/2024 at 17:00

Atletico Madrid will be aiming to overcome a one-goal deficit in the tie with Inter when the two sides go head to head at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday evening. Antoine Griezmann has overcome his injury and the Frenchman should start up front alongside Alvaro Morata, while all Jose Gimenez, Thomas Lemar, Pablo Barrios, and Cesar Azpilicueta remain in the recovery room.

The Nerazzurri, on the other hand, are on a 13-game winning run in all competitions. As Simone Inzaghi’s men are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in the return leg, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals. Lautaro Martinez returns to the starting XI after the Argentina ace was rested in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Bologna at the weekend, whereas both Marko Arnautovic and Carlos Augusto are sidelined with injuries for the visiting side. You should know that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their last three meetings in all competitions.

Recent Meetings

  • Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid played each other in the UEFA Super Cup final in 2010 when the Spaniards celebrated a 2-0 victory.
  • They also locked horns in a preseason friendly at the International Champions Cup in 2018. Inter Milan claimed a 1-0 win back then.
  • I Nerazzurri are searching for their third straight 1-0 victory in this matchup, following the win from the first leg of this tie.

Atletico Madrid vs Inter Milan Prediction

Inter Milan are massive form favourites here. They won 13 games on the trot across competitions. Simone Inzaghi’s men kept nine clean sheets in the previous eleven outings in all competitions, despite having a rather tricky schedule along the way.

The Nerazzurri completely controlled the happenings on the pitch in the first leg of this matchup three weeks ago at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. Atletico Madrid, on the other side, have three losses, one draw, and just one win in the previous five games in all competitions. We have to go for the away win pick as the main betting option at the 2.45 odds.

Atleti’s attacking line did not function great in recent matches. The hosts failed to find the back of the net in two of the previous three outings across competitions. The run involves a 0-3 defeat at Athletic Bilbao in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-finals.

Los Colchoneros also failed to register a single shot on goal in the first leg of this tie against Inter Milan. As none of the previous three head-to-head matches between these counterparts provided three or more goals, we will alternatively take the 1.75 odds offered for the Under 2.5 goals FT pick.
