Atalanta vs Napoli – Serie A: The football is back this weekend in Italy and already with a very interesting match
Where the league leaders travel to one of the toughest grounds in Italy.
Atalanta, that last season managed to qualify for the Europa League and that this season has already managed to get a draw against Juventus in Bergamo, host the leaders Napoli that have been showing some signs of breakdown that can put their lead in jeopardy.
Atalanta is a very combative team that already managed to qualify for the next stage of the Europa League this season. However, in the Serie A, they have faced some upsets.
Currently being in 7th place with 30 points in 20 matches, the team from Bergamo is ahead of Fiorentina, Torino and AC Milan for example. In 10 matches at home, they have won 5, drew 3 and lost 2. They count with 19 goals scored and 11 goals conceded on those same 10 matches.
Atalanta has been making great performances lately and they are a team that does well playing on the counter-attack. On their last 10 matches in every competition, they have only lost once.
Napoli leads the league and on the city in the South of Italy, everyone dreams about conquering the Scudetto that only Maradona had managed to conquer before.
This Napoli’s team has a demolishing attacking trio and a midfield with a lot of quality, but their secret is on their defence. Their organization allows them to only have conceded 13 goals so far.
The Neapolitan team plays earlier than their rivals on the title fight and that can be advantageous for them.
At the end of 2017, Atalanta won at the San Paolo against the Napoli reserves by 1-2, on a result that led to the Neapolitans’ elimination from the Coppa Italia.
However, on the first half of the season, Napoli won 3-1 for the Serie A.
Atalanta vs Napoli – Betting Tip and Prediction:
These are two teams that play attacking football with a lot of quality, so I believe this will be a match with goals.
The “Both teams to score” market seems to be an excellent choice here, essentially because Atalanta usually doesn’t fail to score, and Napoli are exactly the same as well.
Besides the goals, I believe that the Neapolitans are favoured here.
They lead the Serie A and play beautiful football, having managed to win most of their matches with class and only having one loss, against Juventus.
