Atalanta vs Napoli Prediction & Betting tips
Serie A is still going head to head. Before the game Atalanta Bergamo vs. Naples’s odds indicate that the host is considered a favorite – if not clearly.
The game, which will kick off on Wednesday evening at 18:30 p.m. at the Gewiss Stadium, can certainly be described as a top game in Serie A. Both teams have an enormous amount of quality and great goals.
In addition, Atalanta Bergamo in particular is a power on the offensive. The Bergamasci have the best offensive of Serie A and are hungry for goals in almost every game. Against a clever defense from Naples with trainer Gennaro Gattuso, this makes for a very exciting starting position.
A look at the Serie A table shows that Atalanta Bergamo has very good chances of entering the Champions League again this season. The Lombards are currently in fourth place and are nine points ahead of fifth. In addition, there is the outstanding goal difference.
With 80 goals scored, Atalanta Bergamo is also the absolute offensive power in Serie A. Only Lazio, with 66 goals, still comes close to the team of coach Gasperini. Therefore before the game Atalanta Bergamo vs. Naples our prediction that more than 2.5 goals will be scored in this game. The betting provider Unibet tested by the betting base offers a odds of 1.56.
Atalanta Bergamo has also been convincing since the restart. The Gasperini team won their games with 3: 2, 4: 1 and 3: 2 and is still on course for top class. There is no sign of a break-in, and even the tight program shouldn’t be too much trouble for the Lombards.
Of course, only one route is accepted against Naples. Atalanta Bergamo wants and will play forward and try to apply pressure from the start in the typical 3-4-2-1 system. Against Naples, however, it will be more about balance. Especially in the recent 3-2 win against Lazio Rome, the Gasperini team was overwhelmed for long stretches of the first half when the pressure was on.
Atalanta Bergamo has scored 40 goals at home so far, five or more goals have been scored at home in the stadium. But there will be tremendous opposition to Naples. Gennaro Gattuso is a coach who attaches great importance to an orderly defense. However, the hosts have the necessary quality to defeat the opponent.
That would probably be a kind of preliminary decision in the fight for the Champions League. The rest of Atalanta’s program is balanced, the team stable. The host only has to do without the yellow-blocked Malinovskyi.
Overall, the season in Naples was a bit turbulent. After the change of coach from Ancelotti to Gattuso, the Partenopei slowly stabilized. Winning Coppa Italia immediately after the restart was a sign of where a balanced mix of discipline and offensive freedom can lead.
In addition to the triumph in the cup over Juventus, the tasks Hellas Verona and SPAL were also solved in the league. Before the game Atalanta Bergamo vs. However, Naples betting odds indicate that the guests are more of an outsider.
This is somewhat surprising, especially since Naples has all won the last five league games. This speaks even more for the quality of Atalanta Bergamo.
The positive development of Naples under Gattuso is also shown in the table. Meanwhile, the guests are in sixth place, have very good chances for the Europa League and are persecutors of the Roma. And: A win against Atalanta Bergamo could reduce the gap to the host to nine points. Afterwards there are still nine games on the program, so dreaming should be allowed.
Another encouragement is that Naples has a very good away record. On average, Partenopei score more points abroad than at home.
The view of the personnel situation is also positive. With Allan and Ounas, only two players are missing, otherwise Gennaro Gattuso can draw on the full.
