The Italian goalkeeper made a number of reasonable saves to keep his side in the game, but was fortunate to see a Nagatomo header strike the post.
Went close from corners on two occasions, failing to score from six yards out on the second occasion.
Didn't provide a great deal of inspiration going forward, and struggled to deal with the offensive nature of Jonathan, paired with Guarin drifting occasionally in behind.
Made a vital recovering tackle to deny Palacio in stoppage time, and the central defender was a rugged and solid presence throughout.
Should have got tighter to Ricky to prevent the first goal, but the defender otherwise put in a disciplined and hard-working performance to keep tabs on Jonathan.
Was extremely lively, peeling out to the right hand side whenever possible to deliver some good service into the aerial threat of Denis.
A disappointing outing, as the wide man didn't provide much in the way of service.
A positive and hard-working presence in the midfield, the Chilean saw more of the ball in advanced areas in the first half.
Showed plenty of endeavour, pushing forward whenever possible and finding the odd gap in the Inter defence. An all-action performance.
Took his headed goal exceptionally well, and was a real handful for Samuel all game, as the Argentine is such a strong aerial presence.
He tested Handanovic and Carrizo on a few occasions, though none of them had the goalkeepers too worried, but was lively.
The Slovenian made one excellent save to palm a Yepes header out of the top corner, but was then forced to leave the field with a hip injury at half-time.
Only got forward sparingly, hitting the post with a headed effort. Moralez enjoyed some joy against the Japan international in the first half.
Struggled to deal with the aerial presence of Denis, who climbed above his compatriot staggeringly well on several occasions.
A steady game for the Brazilian, who was never called upon to have a great deal of impact on the game.
The wing-back offered plenty of width, and showed some nice footwork at times, manipulating the Atalanta defence and causing some openings.
Made a few rash challenges in midfield, but the Portuguese made a few good headed clearances to defuse dangerous situations.
A poor performance from the young Croatian, whose refined cutting edge wasn't really on show this evening. Over-hit a number of passes.
The standout player for the visitors, as the Argentine created a goal out of nothing, before providing any bright moments for Inter. Went close with an audacious 35-yard strike near the end.
Misplaced a number of long passes during the second half, but did offer some threat in terms of pace and power.
Headed off the line well to deny Atalanta a second goal, and put in a steady performance. Forced Consigli into a good save too.
Only inspired in odd patches, the Argentine will probably hope for better service in future games. The closest Palacio came was to round Consigli, before being pulled back for an offside decision.
Made an excellent reflex save with an outstretched foot to deny Yepes late in the game, and was a good deputy for the injured Handanovic.
Injected some pace and threat into the side. Struck the post unfortunately with a terrific long range drive, after beating Yepes all ends up.
