In their latest triumph, Inter overcame Atalanta in Bergamo with a score of 2-1 on Sunday (November 5, 2023) in the early hours (WIB). Goals from Hakan Calhanoglu and Lautaro Martinez were answered with just one goal from the home side, Gianluca Scamacca.
This victory firmly cements Simone Inzaghi’s team at the top of the Serie A standings, amassing 28 points from 11 games. Their impressive tally includes nine wins, one draw, and a solitary loss. Remarkably, five of these victories have been earned on hostile turf.
Before their encounter with Atalanta, Inter consecutively conquered Cagliari (2-0), Empoli (1-0), Salernitana (4-0), and Torino (3-0) in Serie A away matches this season. Among the top five leagues in Europe, this feat stands as the best record thus far.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that only Hoffenheim has matched Inter’s five away wins this season, albeit trailing in goal difference. Hoffenheim has netted 14 times while conceding on seven occasions in the Bundesliga away fixtures, whereas Inter has been breached just once while scoring 12 goals.
None of the other European clubs have fared as impressively. Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen, Nice, and Girona have all registered a single away draw in their respective leagues, while Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain have drawn twice.
Even the reigning treble winners from last season, Manchester City, have suffered two losses on their travels, and Real Madrid has experienced one defeat and one draw. Inter Milan’s resolute performances away from home make them a standout force in European football.
