When the focus was on the attacking departments of either side it was Inter defender Milan Skriniar who grabbed the winner against Atalanta.
A defender decided the big game between the two most scoring teams in Serie A this season.
Inter and Atalanta met at the Giuseppe Meazza on Monday and the League leaders increased their lead at the top of the table through a Skriniar goal.
The defender found a way through when a corner fell at his feet in the 54th minute and the Orobici goalkeeper Marco Sportiello couldn’t do anything to stop the effort.
Atalanta pushed and pushed for an equaliser, but Inter managed to keep Gian Piero Gasperini's men out through compact defending and limiting the opportunities for the visitors.
