      Inter hold a commanding and well deserved 5-1 lead at the break, after a superb nine-minute hat-trick by Mauro Icardi, followed up by two goals from Ever Banega as Atalanta crumbled under the pressure. The visitors pulled once back just before half-time through Remo Freuler, but surely the game is w

      While the visitors are fifth in Serie A, they proved their class by beating Napoli, which Inter failed to do. Atalanta come in to this on the back of a great season so far, they’ve managed to find the net in their last five on the road. Plus, Inter have conceded in more than half of their home match

      Former Inter manager Gian Piero Gasperini returns with to the San Siro today with Atalanta, the visiting boss was sacked by Inter back in 2011 after just three months in charge. Atalanta’s shock push for the top spots continued with a 2-0 win over Napoli two weeks ago, a victory would be huge for th

      Inter come in to this game in mixed form, they beat Cagliari 5-1 last time out, however they have recently suffered defeats against Roma, Juventus and Lazio. In their last 14 league games, Stefano Pioli has seen his team record 11 victories, but their defeats against the current top three shows why

      Two teams aiming for European qualification go head-to-head today at the San Siro as Inter host Atalanta. It is also many happy returns to the home side, who are playing their first game since turning 109-years-old! Plenty of trophies clinched in that time!

      Good afternoon and welcome to our LIVE match commentary of the Serie A clash between Inter and Atalanta.

      The game is end to end already here! Atalanta looking to break quickly on the counter and cause Inter problems straight away.
    • 1'
      We're underway!
    • 2'
      CHANCE! Inter almost take the lead after two minutes! Ivan Perisic was just inches away from getting on the end of a cross from the right, the Atalanta defence fell asleep then and Perisic was so close to making them pay.
    • 5'
      Inter can rely on Mauro Icardi, their captain and leading goalscorer who has been in superb form this season, netting 17 goals for the Nerazzurri, including scoring ten goals in their last eight league outings at the San Siro.
    • 6'
      Antonio Candreva plays the ball with ease past Leonardo Spinazzolla, he then whips a ball into the box looking for Mauro Icardi but the Atalanta keeper, Etrit Berisha is quick off his line to gather the ball, with the Inter captain lurking dangerously.
    • 8'
      CHANCE ATALANTA! The visitors go close to opening the scoring here. Alejandro Gomez received the ball on the edge of the box, turned and fired a low shot just inches wide of the Inter goal, with Samir Handanovic rooted to the spot.
    • 11'
      A good open game here at the San Siro so far, both teams look threatening going forward as you would expect from two teams aiming for European qualification.
    • 12'
      Candreva received the ball in acres of space in the middle of the pitch, no Atalanta players within 20 yards of him! He tries to go all the way himself, but he really should've played the ball through to Icardi who was in a much better position and the opportunity to run through on goal with just th
    • 14'
      Atalanta have their first corner of the game. Cristian Ansaldi blocking the cross from Andrea Conti. The set piece is a poor one and Inter clear the danger.
    • 15'
      Perhaps a lucky man to still be on the pitch, as the referee deems his trip on Icardi to just be worthy of a yellow card.
    • 15'
      WHAT A CHANCE! Icardi is through on goal after a lob over the top of the Atalanta defence, the skipper takes a touch and then as he is about to pull the trigger he is tripped up by Rafael Toloi. Inter players are appealing for a red card to be given for Toloi being the last man, but the referee sees

    • 17'
      GOOOAAALLL! ICARDI SCORES! The free-kick is straight at the wall by Perisic but it then strikes a few players in the box before falling perfectly to the feet of Icardi, who reacts the quickest and then slots the ball past Berisha into the back of the net with ease. Inter lead one-nil!
    • 20'
      GREAT CHANCE! Atalanta go very close to equalising through Gomez, but his header is straight at Handonvic, either side of him and that would have been in the back of the net.
    • 22'
      STAT: Inter have found the net in every league match at the San Siro so far, racking up 29 goals in 14 home matches.
    • 23'
      GOOOAAALLL! ICARDI CONVERTS! Icardi keeps his cool to bag his second goal of the game, chipping the ball over Berisha to give Inter a two-nil lead!
    • 23'
      Berisha goes into the book for his blatant foul on Icardi, his misery could be compounded if Icardi can convert the spot-kick.
    • 23'
      PENALTY INTER! Icardi takes the ball down from the flick on by Perisic, he plays the ball past Berisha who slides in and clearly brings Icardi down in the box. The referee had no hesitation in pointing to the spot.
    • 25'
      Another Atalanta player receives a yellow card, this time it is Zukanovic for a late foul, the third player within a few minutes.

      GOOOAAALLL! ICARDI HAS HIS HAT-TRICK! What a opening spell it has been for Inter and Icardi. A hat-trick in 15 minutes. This time it is a header, after Ever Banega whipped a delightful ball into the box and Icardi rose highest to power the ball into the back of the net. A nine-minute hat-trick, supe
    • 26'
      Éver Banega is the creator, whipping a perfect ball into the box which Icardi met under little pressure from the Atalanta defence.
    • 28'
      Icardi is the first Inter player to go into the book for a late foul, just losing his cool slightly.
    • 30'
      Inter are still looking to increase their lead here. The hosts are in complete control here, Atalanta are struggling to keep the ball for more than a few passes and Inter are capitalising on every mistake.

      Candreva has the beating of his marker everytime down the right wing and he once again punishes Atalanta. Putting the ball on a plate for Ever Banega who made no mistakes from close range.
    • 31'
      GOOOAAALLL! IT'S FOUR! Éver Banega slots home to give Inter a commanding four-nil lead. Atalanta are all over the place at the moment, they look shell-shocked! Candreva got to the byline and pulled the ball back into the box which Ever Banega met and he slotted the ball into the bottom left-hand cor

    • 34'
      Another assist for Antonio Candreva, pulling the ball back from the byline once again for Ever Banega. Almost a replica of the fourth goal just minutes earlier.
    • 34'
      INTER HAVE FIVE! Éver Banega slots home his second goal of the game and Inter's fifth goal after just 34 minutes! Candreva was involved once again, he tried to shoot himself but the angle was too tight, so he pulled the ball back to his teammate who had the simply job of smashing the ball into the b
    • 37'
      The atmosphere is electric here inside the San Siro as the Inter supporters sound their appreciation for the displacy their side is putting on today. Atalanta have crumbled!
    • 39'
      Handonovic has had only one save to make here today, that came shortly after Inter's opening goal. All of the action has taken place at the other end of the pitch with Inter looking like they will score every time they get close to the Atalanta goal.
    • 41'
      Inter are sending out a real warning to their rivals here today with this superb performance. Is there time left in this first-half for them to score another?

      G R. Freuler Assist É. Banega
    • 42'
      Spinazzola turned and played the ball into the path of his teammate who was given far too much time and space by the Inter defence to slot home a consolation goal.
    • 42'
      GOOOAAALL! ATALANTA PULL ONE BACK! Remo Freuler with an excellent finish into the bottom right-hand corner, giving Handanovic no chance. That was far too easy, the Inter defence taking their eye of the ball for a few seconds and Atalanta grab a goal shortly before half-time. Is a comeback on the car
    • 45'
      That's the half-time whistle!
    • 46'
      The second half is underway!
    • 48'
      Will Inter try and score even more goals in this second half or will they sit back and try to maintain their four-goal lead?
    • 49'
      CHANCE! Icardi is played through on goal, he is dragged slightly wide of the goal and takes a shot from the edge of the box. However he slices his effort high and wide of the Atalanta net, with Candreva unhappy that his captain didn't pull the ball back across goal for him to take a shot at goal.

      G R. Gagliardini Assist É. Banega
    • 52'
      GOOOAAALLL! SIX! Roberto Gagliardini smashes home the sixth goal of the game, against his hometown club. The former Atalanta player doesn't celebrate but he will be thrilled with that goal. Ever Banega has been excellent today and he laid the ball off to Gagliardini who was waiting on the edge of th
    • 55'
      Utterly dominant performance by Inter, they are in complete control of this game and look like they will score every time they go forward. Not the best start to the second half by Atalanta who will now be hoping to salvage some pride out of this game.
    • 57'
      Prior to today's game, Atalanta had avoided defeat in three of their last five visits to Inter, plus they beat Inter 2-1 in the reverse fixture back in October.
    • 59'
      Corner to Atalanta after excellent skill from Kessie, beating several Inter players. The corner is punched away byy Handanovic and Inter can break! Perisic just has to lift the ball over Zukanovic to Icardi who was in acres of space but the defender got back and made a very good block.

    • 61'
      The first Atalanta substitution of the game, Alejandro Gómez is the man heading off the pitch, to be replaced by Anthony Mounier.
    • 64'
      The Inter crowd is loving this performance from their team, it will move them up to fourth in Serie A on 54 points, jumping above Lazio. However they will remain five points behind Roma on 59 points, who also have a game in hand.
    • 66'
      Excellent play by Icardi! He takes the ball down with ease, nicking it away from Bastoni who then makes a rash challenge and brings the Inter skipper down. The hosts now have a free-kick in a very good shooting position. Plenty of players are eager to have a go at this set piece.

    • 67'
      GOOOAAALLL! ANOTHER HAT-TRICK! Éver Banega scores his third goal from the free-kick to give Inter a 7-1 lead! The midfielder sent Berisha the wrong way with his curling free-kick, which was perfectly placed in the bottom right-hand corner. Banega with a very impressive hat-trick!

    • 70'
      One of the hat-trick heroes is off, as Inter make their first substitution of the game. Éver Banega receives a standing ovation as he leaves the pitch, to be replaced by João Mário.
    • 71'
      Plenty of Atalanta players on yellow cards now, Jasmin Kurtič is the latest to be warned by the referee.
    • 74'
      Atalanta are still trying to push forward when they can but they are lacking any conviction and confidence, so the Inter defence are able to cope with anything they can throw at them. A special day for Inter, as they celebrate their 109-year anniversary.
    • 76'
      Gagliardini receives a yellow card for a late foul on Bastoni.
    • 77'
      SI R. Palacio SO É. Banega
    • 77'
      The Inter skipper is given a huge standing ovation as he is replaced by Rodrigo Sebastián Palacio. A superb nine-minute hat-trick by Icardi today which set his team on their way to this impressive scoreline.
    • 80'
      Just ten minutes to go on the clock now, time for any more goals? Inter look keen to increase their lead and their goal difference in the Serie A table which could come into play at the end of the season.

      SI E. Martins SO É. Banega
    • 82'
      Third and final Inter substitution sees Ivan Perišić come off and he is replaced by the experienced Eder.
    • 85'
      Both sides look pretty content with the scoreline at the moment, neither side really threatening to score. Atalanta will be eager for the full-time whistle to blow so they can put this game in the past! It has been a much better second half performance from the visitors but the damage was already do
    • 87'
      GREAT SAVE! Berisha denies Eder a goal which a superb block. The substitute just had the keeper to beat but he fired his effort straight at the Atalanta keeper who made himself big and denied Inter an eighth goal.
