Reason For Atalanta vs Napoli Predictions

  • This is already Atalanta’s highest-scoring season on home soil, hitting 40 goals in just 14 home matches.
  • La Dea have won each of their last nine matches in all competitions.
  • Napoli have lost all of their away trips to the top five.
  • Atalanta have scored 30 goals in eight league games.

Test of form

These two sides are supposedly the best in Serie A right now, as they lead the way in the form table. Only Atalanta’s 22 point haul betters the 21 Napoli have secured from the last eight matches. During that time the Partenopei lifted the Coppa Italia, while Atalanta are thriving in the Champions League.

These two are shaping up well for the run-in and return of European competition. Atalanta look on course for fourth, with a nine-point lead over Roma. They’re all set for the Champions League next term, although Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso has said that his team will look to close the 12 point gap in the run-in. Could they exert some pressure with a result in this trip?

Atalanta edging closer

The hosts are making great strides towards their third top-four finish in four years, an incredible achievement given their limited budget and how their top talents were cherry-picked away in that time. They’ve excelled with a brilliant attacking setup, one which has found the net 10 times in their three matches since the league campaign returned.

Atalanta have scored 40 goals on home soil in Serie A this season, more than in any other top-flight campaign. That brilliant attack should worry Napoli, a team who have had their issues at the back this term. On top of that, la Dea have a strong record against the Partenopei in recent years. Atalanta lead by 20 wins to 10 at home to Napoli (D18), a lead which they are capable of extending this week.

Dea’s big game edge

While both sides are in form, their wins can’t really be compared. Napoli failed to win either match in the Coppa Italia this month, succeeding on away goals and penalties. They’ve beaten Verona and SPAL since returning, while their five-game winning run in the league saw them prey on out-of-form sides like Cagliari, Brescia and Torino. Meanwhile, Atalanta have proven themselves in big matches.

La Dea have won their last nine matches, with that run seeing them beat the likes of Roma and Lazio, while they beat Valencia home and away in the Champions League. Their victory over Lazio in their last home game was a thrilling comeback, showing the character and quality of this side. Given that Napoli have lost all of their trips to the sides above them this season, our first prediction is to back a home win.

Atalanta have seen half of their home games finish with at least five goals scored. They come into this game having scored 30 times across their last eight league matches. However, three of their last five home matches have seen la Dea concede twice, while Napoli should push forward here given the lack of home support. We’re going with Atalanta to edge this one 3-2 in our correct score prediction.
