Individual duels are likely to play a big role in determining the outcome of this evening’s massive Serie A clash between Inter and Atalanta.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who note the significance that certain matchups will play in setting the tone for the match.

Inter play a fluid style which sees each player involved in possession and in a proactive defensive approach, while Atalanta are even more focused on covering each individual opponent with a marker.

The two teams’ positional schemes will be important, but so will the outcomes of individual duels, with the midfield and wide areas likely to see a number of one-on-one contests to establish control and potentially find points for each side to break down the other’s defensive structure.

La Dei defender Merih Demiral and Nerazzurri striker Edin Dzeko will come up against one another in a physical clash that could determine whether the Nerazzurri can hold the ball high up the pitch.

Meanwhile, Alexis Sanchez could use his speed and movement to give the Atalanta defenders something very different to worry about.

At the other end of the pitch, the Nerazzurri defense led by Stefan de Vrij will likely face a setup containing Luis Muriel ahead of two attacking midfielders, and how these matchups play out will be important not only for Atalanta’s attacking strength, but also to establish control of space and territory.
