Inter Milan will be hoping that they can keep up their “crazy” record of defensive solidity in today’s Serie A clash with Atalanta.

This is highlighted in today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews.

It has now been 316 minutes since Inter last conceded a goal.

That arrived late in the first half of the Nerazzurri’s 4-2 Serie A win over Roma earlier this month. It came courtesy of an excellent strike from Stephan El Shaarawy.

Inter kept a clean sheet in the second half of that match, and scored three goals to complete the comeback over the Giallorossi.

Since then, there have been clean sheets against all of Salernitana, Atletico Madrid, and Lecce.

In total, Inter have conceded four goals across all competitions in 2024.

In ten wins across ten matches, the Nerazzurri have allowed Hellas Verona and Monza to pierce their defense. And Roma twice.

But there have been seven clean sheets in those victories between Serie A, the Supercoppa Italiana, and the Champions League.

Inter Aiming To Keep Defensive Wall Up In Serie A Clash Vs Atalanta

During this evening’s match, it will be Yann Sommer back in goal for Inter.

Emil Audero had taken over for the Swiss international against Lecce on Sunday, due to an illness to the latter.

Audero got a clean sheet, his first in an Inter shirt, in his first Serie A start this season.

But it has been Sommer who’s really grabbed the plaudits for clean sheets this season.

The ex-Bayern Munich keeper had a streak of five clean sheets towards the end of June 2025.

And at the centre of Inter’s defense will be Stefan de Vrij.

The 32-year-old former Lazio and Feyenoord defender has not seen a goal go into inter’s net since he replaced Francesco Acerbi in the second half of the win over Roma.

Flanking de Vrij, meanwhile, will be Alessandro Bastoni and Benjamin Pavard.

The two first-choice defenders will take the places of Carlos Augusto and Yann Bisseck in the Nerazzurri back three.
