Napoli vs Atalanta Prediction & Betting tips
Serie A resumes with a beautiful poster. Atalanta and Napoli both took the plunge in the first games of the season and will battle in Naples to see who is the strongest at the moment. Last season, the game ended in 2-2 while the game in Bergamo in July ended in a 2-0 victory for Atalanta.
Napoli would already play a top match in the last weekend before the international break, before that it would visit Juventus. Gennaro Gattuso’s team beat Genoa 6-0 a week earlier – where more than twenty players and staff members were tested positive for the corona virus – and when positive tests came in at Napoli itself, local authorities made sure that the team was not allowed to. travel to Turin. Last Wednesday there was good news for Gattuso, his entire squad tested negative for the virus, including the two players who previously tested positive. On the same day, the club also heard that the game against Juventus had been turned into a regulatory 3-0 defeat and that Napoli was deducted a point for not showing up. The azzurri are appealing the ruling because the travel ban was imposed from above.
In addition, the club is in the stomach with Arek Milik. The striker has to train separately for the next three months because he chose to stay with Napoli despite interest from Fiorentina, AS Roma and Valencia, among others. Napoli chose not to register the Pole for the Serie A and Europa League and so it remains to be seen whether he will leave in the winter or whether he will serve his contract until next summer and therefore leave transfer-free.
Atalanta broke Napoli’s goal record last season and Gian Piero Gasperini’s team is on the right track to further hone the record. The first three duels were won with large numbers by La Dea. Four goals were scored against Torino and competitor Lazio and also won 5-2 against Cagliari. The best midfielder of Serie A last season Papu Gomez showed his class in all three games, he was involved in six of the 13 goals (four goals, two assists).
How clever the performance of Gasperini and his team is was once again shown this week when the salaries of players from the Serie A were published. The number three of the past two seasons is only the number eleven in Italy based on the total salary balance. Star player Gomez earns ‘only’ two million euros a year, less than, for example, Kamil Glik from Benevento.
