          Atlético Madrid vs. Inter Milan Prediction & Betting Tips

          The encounter between Atlético Madrid and Inter Milan in the Champions League this Tuesday is poised to be a nail-biting encounter that could go either way. Under Diego Simeone, Atlético have so often punched above their weight in this competition and the Wanda Metropolitano is one of Europe's toughest venues for a visiting team. They'll need to harness every advantage they have here as they look to topple an excellent Inter team.

          Date: 13/03/2024

          Kick-off time: 20:00

          Location: Wanda Metropolitano

          Atlético Madrid, under the guidance of Diego Simeone, find themselves in a season characterised by inconsistency, yet they remain a formidable force, currently 4th in La Liga. The team's performance has fluctuated, with the squad feeling the weight of limited investment and the need for rejuvenation. Despite these challenges, Atlético boast the talismanic Antoine Griezmann, whose brilliance and attacking prowess are undeniable. At 32, Griezmann is in the prime of his career, and any chance Atlético have of progressing from this tie will likely come down to his availability which, as of now, is uncertain.

          The team's recent history in the Champions League knockout stages, however, tells a tale of missed opportunities and narrowly missed triumphs. Having been eliminated in their last three attempts after losing the first leg of a two-legged tie, Atlético’s resilience and ability to overturn deficits will be put to the test once more against Inter Milan. The Madrid side's struggle for goals in the knockout stages of the competition has been evident, with just three goals in their last eight knockout ties in this competition, underlining the need for a sharp turnaround in fortune.

          Inter Milan, under Simone Inzaghi, have enjoyed a stellar campaign in Serie A, sitting comfortably atop the league. Their dominance in Italy is a testament to Inzaghi's tactical acumen and the effective implementation of his 3-5-2 formation, which has proven formidable against a variety of opponents and is highly effective at inflating the talent at his disposal. The Nerazzurri are not only aiming to consolidate their domestic success but also to capture European glory, building on their run to the Champions League final last season.

          Inter's squad depth and quality are enviable, with players like Alessandro Bastoni, Hakan Çalhanoglu, and Lautaro Martínez making significant contributions this season. Their prowess and cohesion as a unit have seen Inter progress from seven of their last eight knockout ties after winning the first leg. However, their record in Spain poses a challenge, with no wins in their last ten away games against Spanish opposition, a statistic Inzaghi will be keen to rectify.

          The tactical matchup between Simeone and Inzaghi will be central to the outcome of this tie. Simeone's Atlético are known for their defensive solidity and ability to strike on the counter, with Griezmann playing a pivotal role in their attacking endeavours. Inzaghi's Inter, meanwhile, excel in maintaining possession and exploiting the width provided by their wing-backs, creating spaces for their dynamic forwards.

          For Atlético, overcoming their recent scoring drought in the knockout stages will be crucial, as will harnessing the energy and passion of their home crowd. Inter's challenge will be to adapt their tactical approach to overcome their poor record in Spain, leveraging their in-form players and strategic flexibility to secure a favourable result.

          Team News

          Atlético Madrid Team News:

          Atlético are sweating on the fitness of Antoine Griezmann who is a major doubt for this game after a period on the sidelines with injury.

          José Giménez, Cesar Azpilicueta and Thomas Lemar will all miss out for an Atlético side that are struggling a bit on the injury front.

          Inter Team News:

          An unassailable lead at the top of the Serie A table meant Inter were in the fortunate position of being able to rest a number of players at the weekend so Benjamin Pavard, Stefan de Vrij, Federico Dimarco and Lautaro Martínez will all come into the game fully fresh.

          Juan Cuadrado and Stefano Sensi will be the only injury absentees for an Inter side that should line up as they did in the first leg.

          Form Guide (Last Five Games)

          Alético Madrid are coming into this game woefully out of form having won just one of their last five games, drawing one and losing three of the other five. Most recently, Diego Simeone's side fell to a 2-0 defeat away at Cádiz at the weekend, a sorry defeat against a side currently in La Liga's relegation zone who also entered the weekend's game winless in their last fifteen matches.

          They are, though, infinitely stronger on home soil where they've lost just one game all season, winning four of their last five.

          In Europe, Atlético are unbeaten at the Wanda Metropolitano in their last eight Champions League games and won all three of their home games in the group stage this season by an aggregate scoreline of 10-2.

          Inter's form stands in stark contrast to that of their opponents. Simone Izaghi's men are entering this game off the back of eighteen consecutive wins in all competitions. In their last five games, Inter have won every encounter by a combined scoreline of 12-1, with their most recent game being a 1-0 win away at a surging Bologna side who are currently 4th in Serie A.

          The win at Bologna was a professional and effective performance, with a goal from Yann Aurel Bisseck after 37 minutes proving the difference between the two sides.

          Whether playing at home or away Inter are excellent, as they come into this game having won all of their last six games on the road, conceding just one goal in that period. They did, however, win only one of their three away games in the group stage, so that is undoubtedly a caveat.

          Footy Accumulators Prediction

          Atlético are rarely rolled over on their own turf and the crowd at the Wanda Metropolitano can create a raucous atmosphere when the occasion is fitting. Despite their poor form, Atlético will be a stern test for Inter in front of their own fans and should rise to the level of their opponent somewhat. However, ultimately the Italian side are unequivocally the better of the two and should avoid defeat here at the very least. We predict: Atlético Madrid 1-1 Inter.
