Worth mentioning: Atalanta’s incredible run of going unbetean in twenty matches was finally ended, as they lost 0:2 to Inter in the last round of Serie A 19/20 season. The defeat also marked Atalanta’s first game without scoring in over thirty outings. They were on the verge of becoming the first team to score 100 goals in the Italian topflight for the last sixty years, but failed to duplicate their form from earlier in the season when were scoring for fun, as they averaged just a goal per game in the last five encounters. Just one of those produced over 2,5 goals, while three saw both involved sides to score. Atalanta have kept just one clean sheet across the previous seven meetings.
Paris Saint-Germain lost just one of their previous 34 games across all competitions, with the defeat coming in the Champions League’s visit to Borussia Dortmund for the 1st leg of their 1/8 final battle back in February. Since then the Parisians won nine of the following ten matches, as the French League Cup final with Lyon finished in a boring goalless draw, only for PSG to lift the trophy after a penalty shoot-out. The oil-rich French champions are on a run of not conceding in seven straight encounters. Two of their last five outings featured over 2,5 goals, while understandably none witnessed goals at both ends.
