      Thanks for joining our commentary this afternoon. Until next time, goodbye.

      The pressure will be ramped up on Frank de Boer now. His side were below par throughout the match and were only level thanks to a brilliant strike from Eder Martins. They lost their composure late in the game when Davide Santon gifted Atalanta a penalty to cost his side a point. Inter now drop into
    • 0'
      Atalanta claim a 2-1 victory to move above Inter in the Serie A table, and it's no more than Gian Piero Gasperini's men deserved for their display this afternoon. They were the better of the two sides and goals from Andrea Masiello and Mauricio Pinilla have been enough to hand them the three points.

    • 0'
      Atalanta take a 1-0 lead into the break thanks to Andrea Masiello's strike in the 10th minute. The home side have dominated the first half, although the match has contained few clear-cut opportunities. Frank de Boer will be extremely concerned by his side's display thus far and will be demanding an

      Inter have made two changes from their win over Southampton during the week. Joao Mario returns to the fold after missing at the San Siro due to being ineligible for the Europa League, while Ivan Perisic also gets the start this afternoon. Assane Gnoukouri and Antonio Candreva drop to the bench.
    • 0'
      Atalanta are unchanged from their goalless draw against Fiorentina last time out. Andrea Petagne continues to lead the line, supported by Jasmin Kurtic and Alejandro Gomez. Mattia Caldara, Andrea Masiello and Rafael Toloi form the back three in front of Etrit Berisha.

    • 0'
      Gian Piero Gasperini’s men will provide a stern test for Inter this afternoon, especially considering their home win over Napoli last time out in the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia. 
    • 0'
      Atalanta have been solid this season, but have rounded into good form over the past month. They put back-to-back wins together against Crotone and Napoli, while they also claimed an impressive point away at Fiorentina.
    • 0'
      Their loss to Cagliari last time out was particularly alarming for Frank de Boer as Mauro Icardi's penalty miss was cheered by his own supporters amid his feud with Inter's fanbase. The club's form has heaped pressure on the Dutchman and he needs a positive result this afternoon to ease the strain.
    • 0'
      Inter claimed a vital win in the Europa League on Thursday by defeating Southampton, keeping their hopes alive in the competition. However, their league form has been a concern, taking only one point from their last three matches.

      Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the Serie A clash between Atalanta and Inter at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia.
    • 1'
      An early press for the home side down the right as Conti tries to find Kurtic, but Murillo makes the interception and Brozovic comes back to hammer the ball clear.
    • 1'
      We're underway in this Serie A clash.
    • 2'
      Nagatomo takes his eyes of the ball and allows Miranda's simple pass to head into touch. Not the best start for the Inter right-back.
    • 3'
      Gomez and Kessie both test the flanks in the space of seconds, but their crosses into the box are both handled with ease by Handanovic.
    • 5'
      A decent spell of possession comes to an end for the home side as Drame sends a low ball across the face of goal, but there are no black and blue shirts to attack the cross in the six-yard area.
    • 6'
      Drame sends another cross into the box from the left flank and this time there are Atalanta players on hand to provide a threat. However. Handanovic comes off his line to palm the ball away from goal.
    • 8'
      Inter make their first probe down the flanks and Eder Martins sends a cross into the box for Icardi, but Berisha comes off his line to make a comfortable claim.
    • 9'

    • 10'
      G A. Masiello Assist J. Kurtič
    • 10'
      Kurtic finds Masiello at the back post and the defender makes no mistake finding the net.
    • 10'
      GOAL!!!! Atalanta take the lead as Masiello powers his header into the net at the back post. Kurtic's cross from the right caused havoc in the box and the ball fell perfectly for the defender to head into an empty net.
    • 12'
      CHANCE! Drame hits a cross deep to the back post and Conti has a free header at goal, but he can only send his effort straight at Handanovic who makes the save.
    • 13'
      Inter are well and truly on the back foot here. They need to hang in at the back as they cannot afford to concede a second goal this early in the contest.
    • 15'
      Kurtic wins the ball in the final third, but then gets brought down by Santon. The home side have a chance to pile men forward into the box to threaten from this set-piece.
    • 16'
      Gomez's free-kick is cleared, but Atalanta retain possession in the Inter half to put further stress on the visitors' backline.
    • 18'
      Perisic beats the challenge of Masiello with ease down the right flank and he bursts into the box. He opts to cut the ball back across the edge of the area, but there is no white shirt there to capitalise and the opening is spurned.
    • 20'
      Brozovic is put under intense pressure in possession inside his own box. Kurtic comes away with the ball as the midfielder hits the deck, but the referee stops the Atalanta forward in his tracks by blowing his whistle for a foul.
    • 21'
      Atalanta work the ball quickly down the left and Drame hits a first-time cross into the box, but Petagna just cannot get there in time as Handanovic gathers inside his six-yard area.
    • 22'
      Nagatomo latches on to a ball over the top of the Ataltanta defence down the right flank, but his speed lets him down as he fails to connect with his cross, sending the ball out for a goal-kick.
    • 24'
      The home side are continuing to take advantage of space on the flanks. Conti tries to thread a pass into Petagna's feet, but Murillo makes the interception on the edge of the box and clears downfield.
    • 25'
      Miranda's turn to make a vital intervention at the back as Gomez tries to pick out Drame's forward run into the inside left channel, but the defender reads the midfielder's intentions and steps in to win the ball.
    • 27'
      A loose crossfield pass almost allows Conti to surge through the middle, but Santon whips it away from him just before the wing-back could bring the ball under control.
    • 29'
      Petagna slides the ball out to the left for Drame's forward run, and once again the ball flies across the face of goal, but the home side manage to win a corner.
    • 30'
      Inter clear the danger from the resulting set-piece and ease the pressure on their backline for now.
    • 32'
      PENALTY SHOUT! Eder makes a weaving run into the box and goes down under the challenge of Freuler. Inter appeal for a spot-kick, but the referee dismisses their claims.
    • 33'
      Nagatomo's pass to Medel puts the Chilean under huge pressure on the edge of his own box, forcing the midfielder into a sliding challenge with Petagna to send the ball back to Handanovic.
    • 34'
      Perisic raids down the left flank and he stands a cross into the middle, but no Inter player can challenge Berisha in the air as the Albanian clears. However, he then gets clattered by Joao Mario and a free-kick is awarded.
    • 35'
      SAVE! Space opens up in the final third for Rafael Toloi to strike the ball in an advanced position, and his effort takes a deflection forcing Handanovic to turn the ball away from goal.
    • 37'
      Inter are struggling to compete in the middle of the park, which has seen wave after wave of Atalanta attacks. However, since the goal the home side have not been able to force Handanovic into a meaningful save, which will give De Boer's men hope.
    • 38'
      Santon sends an arcing cross to the back post, but there is no white shirt in the vicinty at it lands in the area, allowing the home side to clear with ease.
    • 41'
      SHOT! Inter have their first attempt at goal of the match thus far as Santon fires an effort at the target, but he drags his strike harmlessly wide of the post.
    • 43'
      Inter attempt to probe down the left, but Perisic cannot find a way through and under pressure is forced back to Medel in the centre circle.
    • 44'
      Gomez is allowed space and time to deliver a cross for the home side towards the back post, but on this occasion his accuracy is off and it heads straight out for a goal-kick.
    • 45'
      There will be two minutes of added time.
    • 46'
      Atalanta put the pressure on immediately and Conti breaks down the flank before he sends a low ball into the box, but Murillo makes a vital interception.
    • 46'
      We're back underway in this Serie A clash.
    • 46'
      Toloi hits the deck with a hamstring injury and it looks like he will be unable to continue in this match.
    • 47'
      Santon is brought down on the left and the visitors have an opportunity to send a cross into the box from a decent attacking platform.
    • 47'
      Toloi is forced off with his hamstring injury and is replaced by Konko.
    • 48'
      Brozovic swings his cross in from the left, but Konko gets up highest in the area to head away the danger.
    • 48'
      The referee brings the first half to an end.
    • 49'
      Konko goes into the book for a foul on Eder and Inter a free-kick in a good position.
    • 50'
      G E. Martins Assist J. Kurtič
    • 50'
      Brozovic simply taps the ball to Eder, who does the rest to bring Inter level.
    • 50'
      GOAL!!!!! Eder equalises with a stunning strike from distance. Brozovic tapped the ball to his team-mate to fire at goal from 30 yards and the Italian belted his effort into the top corner, leaving Berisha with no chance.
    • 51'
      Gasperini was not happy with the decision to award Inter that free-kick and let the referee know about it. As a result he has been sent to the stands.
    • 52'
      Atalanta put the pressure back on the visitors and Gomez sends a low cross into the box, but no player from the home side can react to pounce on the loose ball.
    • 53'
      CHANCE! Perisic has space to line up a strike from distance and his powerful effort draws a good save from Berisha, who parries the ball at the second attempt.
    • 55'
      Inter are playing far better than they were in the first half as they appear to be more controlled in possession. De Boer must have had a few choice words at the interval.
    • 57'
      Atalanta are sitting back on the defensive to attempt to cope with Inter's pressure. They've been pretty solid from open play this afternoon.
    • 58'
      Kessie makes a strong run into the final third and his shot deflects off Murillo and heads out for a corner.
    • 59'
      SAVE! Konko gets his head to the ball and it dips towards the bottom corner, only for Handanovic to get down well to his right to make the save.
    • 60'
      SHOT! Gomez cuts inside from the right and he drills an effort towards goal, but Handanovic watches the ball all the way to make the stop.
    • 61'

    • 61'

    • 62'
      Petagna has put in a decent shift and now makes way for Pinilla.
    • 62'
      Brozovic departs after an ineffectual game to be replaced by Kondogbia.
    • 64'
      Atalanta win a free-kick deep in Inter territory on the right and Gomez will swing the ball in from the flank.
    • 65'
      CHANCE! Freuler sends the ball back in from the left and Pinilla heads towards the net from a central position, but he can only guide his effort at Handanovic.
    • 65'
      Inter fail to clear the danger, but the ball does not fall for Konko in the box, which allows the visitors just to scramble it away from the goalmouth.
    • 66'
      Pinilla took a knock when he headed at goal there and requires treatment on the pitch before we can continue.
    • 69'
      Atalanta break with speed as Gomez advances down the left before feeding it to Pinilla. He slides it back to Drame and the wing-back curls his cross aiming for Gomez's forward run, but Santon wins the mismatch in height at the back post to head away.
    • 70'
      Conti gets in behind Santon on the right and he advances to the byline, but the Inter defender just gets back at him to force the mistake and win a goal-kick for his team.
    • 71'
      Murillo has made several good interceptions in this contest and he continues to deny the home side with a pivotal breakup to stop Kessie's throughball from reaching Pinilla in the box.
    • 73'
      Kessie attempts to release Pinilla behind the Inter defence after impressive defensive work from Konko. However, the Chilean mistimes his run and is caught offside.
    • 75'
      Murillo is there again for the visitors to stop Gomez's cross at the near post. Pinilla was lurking in behind him, but the Colombian has been excellent with his positional sense this afternoon.
    • 76'
      SI A. Candreva SO J. Kurtič
    • 76'
      Eder makes way for Candreva for the final 14 minutes.
    • 78'
      Perisic lifts a cross into the middle from the right flank and Icardi fails to make contact with his leap, but the ball almost travels into the net direct from the cross, drifting narrowly wide of the post.
    • 79'
      SAVE! Berisha makes a brilliant save to keep the scores level as he denies Perisic. Santon raided down the left and his cross was diverted into Perisic's path by Icardi. The Croat belted an effort on the half-volley towards the net, but the keeper was there with an impressive reaction stop.
    • 81'
      SI R. Gagliardini SO J. Kurtič
    • 81'
      Gagliardini replaces Gomez for the home side.
    • 82'
      Conti lifts an inviting cross into the box, but Pinilla is prevented from reaching the ball by Handanovic, who races off his line claim.
    • 83'
      An interesting time in the match for Atalanta. They've been the better of the two teams, but do they go for broke and try to claim the win, risking a counter from the visitors?
    • 85'
      Perisic makes a bursting run attempting to latch on to Santon's throughball, but he is penalised for a foul on Conti.
    • 86'
      CHANCE! Perisic raids down the flank and cuts the ball back for Joao Mario to strike. The Portuguese blasts his effort at goal, but Caldara deflects the ball fortunately straight into Berisha's hands. That was the moment for the visitors.
    • 87'
      PENALTY TO ATALANTA! Santon brings down Kessie in the box and the hosts have a chance to take the lead with three minutes left in the game.
    • 88'
      GOAL!!!!! Pinilla takes the spot-kick, and although Handanovic gets a hand to the ball he cannot prevent the powerful strike from the Chilean finding the net. Atalanta take a deserved lead with only two minutes left in the contest.
    • 89'
      Pinilla is booked for jumping into the crowd after scoring.
    • 90'
      There will be four minutes of added time.
    • 91'
      Perisic lifts the cross into the box from the left, but Drame gets back to head it clear of Icardi.
    • 92'
      Icardi puts the ball into the net as Berisha drops the ball as he comes to claim a cross. The striker is penalised for a foul, although the contact appeared to be minimal. That is a controversial moment.
    • 93'
      Berisha requires treatment before we can continue. Eventually the keeper gets to his feet, although he might have been lucky to escape with his handling error.
    • 94'
      Inter pile men forward in the final few seconds of the contest. Can they get a late equaliser?
    • 95'
      No they cannot as the referee blows his whistle to end the game.
