Two of Serie A's top teams face off against one another on Saturday evening, as champions Inter take on the 'funnest team in the world LTD' Atalanta at San Siro.

I Nerazzurri go into the game having won all but one of their opening five Serie A games - drawing with Sampdoria in the other - and have been scoring goals for fun too. They bagged three away at Fiorentina on Tuesday, and just the six against Bologna last weekend.

Atalanta have enjoyed a decent start to their season too, sitting three points adrift of Inter in the table. There will, however, be slight concerns over them only scoring six goals in their first five league games - we expected at least 30 by now.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of the game.

Disappointingly it looks as though Inter will be without the services of Joaquin Correa on Saturday, having suffered a pelvic injury in the 6-1 win over Bologna last weekend.

Stefano Sensi and Arturo Vidal will also be unavailable, but a fully fit Nicolo Barella will soften the blow of these injuries for Simone Inzaghi.


Inter vs Atalanta predicted lineups

Atalanta: Musso; Toloi, Demiral, Djimsiti; Zappacosta, De Roon, Freuler, Gosens; Pessina, Ilicic; Zapata.

Inter: Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Dumfries, Barella, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Perisic; Martinez, Dzeko.


Inter vs Atalanta prediction

Despite selling their two best players (Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi) and losing their manager (Antonio Conte) in the summer, Inter still look like the best team in Italy.

With a number of shrewd signings being made after the big money sales they haven't really missed a beat at the start of this season - the fact that they're unbeaten proves it.

This game will undoubtedly be their biggest challenge of the Serie A season so far, however they should have enough firepower in their squad to see them over the line.

Prediction: Inter 2-1 Atalanta
