Atalanta will take on Napoli in the Serie A 23rd round on Sunday afternoon. Both sides hope of securing the Champions League spot and will search for a victory.
Atalanta vs Napoli Match Preview & Team News
The home side managed to get back home from Sardinia with a win over Cagliari last weekend. That one saw them leveling up with their upcoming rivals on the 5th spot. Luis Muriel secured a hard-fought victory to Atalanta with a 90th-minute goal. However, Gian Piero Gasperini’s side has been inconsistent lately, as the hosts celebrated two times in the last five rounds. Atalanta is the second-most productive team in Serie A this season, with 49 goals scored so far. They don’t give up on their attacking game approach, and it is always a joy to watch Atalanta. Nevertheless, the home side failed to win in their previous three games at Gewiss Stadium. If they want to keep challenging the Champions League spot, they should stop spilling points at home.
Napoli is on a poor run after winning just once in the previous five matches in all competitions. They head to this game after losing against Granada in the Europa League knockout stage. Gennaro Gattuso’s side is two points behind the fourth-placed Juventus but needs to improve its game. Napoli suffered five consecutive defeats on the road in all competitions, and it’s something that should worry the away side’s fans. Nevertheless, Lorenzo Insigne and the lads have been pretty efficient in front of the oppositions’ net this season. Still, they should stabilize the form to stay in the race for the top four. However, this game is going to be a tough challenge for Gattuso’s side as they will have severe selection troubles.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Napoli has not been convincing at all in the past few weeks, and that’s something Atalanta can take advantage of. Atalanta has already managed to knock out their rivals from Coppa Italia earlier this month. In an even clash, we think the hosts could keep the victory at their stadium.
Goals Market Prediction
Both teams have significant attacking potential, and they can certainly show what they are capable of in this game. Therefore, we expect to see goals in both nets.
