Inter Milan beat lowly Atalanta 3-1 at home

04-25-2010 10:40 BJT


Inter Milan climbed back to the top of Serie A with a 3-1 home win over Atalanta on Saturday after manager Jose Mourinho's gamble with their title hopes paid off.

The coach, with an eye on Wednesday's Champions League semi-final second leg in Barcelona, rested most of his starting defence and midfielders.

The ploy worked, with Inter going two points clear pending AS Roma's home match with Sampdoria on Sunday.

But the risk could easily have backfired, however, with just three games left this season.
