BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Saturday night, Napoli host Atalanta at the Stadio Diego Maradona, in what could be a clash that shapes the Serie A title for the rest of the campaign.
After a fantastic start to their Serie A campaign, Napoli’s league form has stalled in recent matches. A 2-2 draw at Sassuolo means that the Azzurri have now won just one of their last four matches in the Italian top-flight.
Despite their recent inconsistent league form, Napoli still sit atop of Serie A. However, Milan are just a point behind the leaders, with reigning champions also just a point further back and in good form.
Napoli are unbeaten in 18 home matches in Serie A, having won six of their last seven league games on home soil.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s team head into this game on a high, as they are nine games unbeaten in all competitions. A 4-0 midweek win over Venezia in Bergamo means that Atalanta have now recorded four straight wins. The good recent run of form has moved the visitors to within four points of their hosts. The win last time out saw Atalanta score at least two goals for the fifth time in six matches in Serie A.
The Nerazzurri are a formidable away team, as they are unbeaten in 13 away matches in Serie A, having recorded ten wins in their 13 unbeaten games on their travels. Gasperini’s team have been prolific away from home, scoring at least seven goals in their previous nine league matches on travels.
Napoli are without the suspended Filippo Costa, while Andre Zambo Anguissa, Alessandro Zanoli are expected to miss out through injury and illness. Star striker Victor Osimhen is the home sides biggest absentee through injury.
Atalanta look set to be without Robin Gosens and Matteo Lovato through injury, while Federico Mattiello is also ruled out through suspension.
Atalanta are the form team heading into this clash. However, Napoli are a very strong team on home soil. This could be an exciting clash with plenty of goals, most likely finishing all square.
