I might not be able to watch the Inter vs Juve because I'll be running the Atlanta Marathon.

Although Juve will be playing at home to Inter Milan, they will have to play behind closed doors, so I don't see home advantage as something they will really have in this game. I still expect Juve to narrowly win though.

Unfortunately the 5 games behind closed doors have now all been postponed due to coronavirus.

Atalanta really destroyed Lecce by scoring 7 goals past them and it's the 3rd time in Serie A this season, where Atalanta have scored 7 goals past opponents. Atalanta of course thrashed Torino 0-7 in Turin at the end of January and they also crushed Udinese 7-1 at home in Bergamo during October. It seems like Atalanta have made a habit of scoring 5 or 6 or 7 goals past opponents in Serie A this season, they really are enjoyable to watch.

Against Lecce the other day, they were at their rampant best, creating chances at will and scoring a ton of goals. Josip Ilicic in particular was superb once again, he really is a superb player with great technical skill, strength, excellent passing ability and a very competent scorer. He's also a brilliant set piece taker as well of course. It surprises me why he was never snapped up by a bigger club during his career, he is a playmaker who is a class act, a lovely player to watch. But at 32, he doesn't have too much longer in his career, so we should enjoy his talents while he is still playing.

Alejandro Gomez, Zapata as well as Ruslan Malinovskiy all played very well. Malinovskiy played an exquisite through ball to Muriel and put him through one on one on goal to score Atalanta's 6th goal. Malinovskiy then got on the score sheet himself, with a left footed pile driver of a goal from outside the area, to score Atalanta's 7th goal of the game.

Atalanta have been the most exciting team in Serie A this season, as you can always expect plenty of goals when they play.
