Same as last season, Atalanta is in the Champions League zone and goes for a medal in the championship. However, the “Napoli” lost ground and so far fights only in the Europa League zone.
While Atalanta feels quite comfortable, the gap from Roma is already nine points and it is unlikely that it will be realistic to play such a handicap for the “wolves”. Theoretically, the wards of Gasperini can still be displaced from the third place by Inter. They are separated from the Nerazzurri by only four points and this alignment seems quite real.
After quarantine, Atalanta did not play football. After a devastating 4-1 victory over Sassuolo, in a difficult match it managed to beat home and Lazio 3-2. The hosts missed twice in that meeting by the 11-th a minute. In the last round “Atalanta” outplayed “Udinese” with the score 3: 2 without any problems, thus obtaining the sixth consecutive victory in the championship.
Napoli also had very serious problems at the start of the season, for a long time the Neapolitans hung out at the bottom of the table. However, Gennaro Gattuso gradually managed to rectify the situation - now the “Partenopeyts” are already sixth in the standings and 12 points behind “Atalanta”. In today's match it will be decided whether they will be able to become a contender for a ticket to the Champions League.
Despite all problems, Napoli has already won one trophy - in the final of the Italian Cup he was beaten in the Juventus penalty shoot-out. The victory in this tournament has already provided the Neapolitans with a ticket to the Europa League, but this tournament of the day of such an ambitious club is unlikely to be a priority.
In the last round “Napoli” broke with SPAL in the field without any problems. The victory with the score 3: 1 was already fifth in a row.
Atalanta is in great shape and a long break did not affect its game in any way. As before, the Bergamaski scored goals in batches and won. “Napoli” has also seriously added recently and is practically not mistaken. After the victory in the Cup, the Neapolitans gained the necessary self-confidence and it will be extremely difficult to stop their owners.
Both teams have a powerful attack, but very often make mistakes on the defensive. In personal meetings the effectiveness is also very high, so it makes sense to count on an extravaganza today. Moreover, after the scandalous duel in Naples in the first round, after which, in essence, the recession of the “Parthenopeyts” began, the guests should clearly not have problems with motivation.
In our opinion, the guests will not be able to win and the match will be productive. We offer a combined forecast - Atalanta will not lose + total more than (2.5) goals. In 1x bet, such an outcome is offered with a coefficient of 2.30
