Napoli – Atalanta, Serie A Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR ATALANTA - NAPOLI
Napoli definitely struggled seriously with SPAL and logically did not win the match. It can only be the fault of the players and Ancelotti. SPAL did not play so well and their goalie had a bad day, but Neapolitans never punished him. A very frivolous approach from Napoli in this match. If they continue like that they will not go far, which is not good, because the qualities of the team are indisputable. They already showed some fluctuations at home, and today they play with Atalanta, so any mistake can be fatal.
Atalanta show that they are not a team that relies on individuals. This team has a built style of play and does not stop following it. They smashed Udinese with 7-1 without Zapata. The goal they conceded was at the beginning of the match and then went 0-1 because of an individual error, after which Atalanta showed ruthlessness and huge character. Guardiola likes the game of Atalanta and accidentally shared it with the media because they are not afraid of anyone. They play offensively and try to outplay every team on every pitch.
Expert view : In this case, we expect goals because Atalanta are the attacking team and Napoli are the better team overall and a favorite in the match. We think Napoli will not make another mistake. Exactly Ancelotti is good at correcting his mistakes, and Napoli has had quite a few against Atalanta lately. In addition, Neapolitans know well how they can counter their opponent, given their strong teams this season and that they have played the same way in them. As we said, we expect goals, but more from Napoli and overall we think they will win, so the prediction is Napoli – Over 1.5 goals at 1.72.
Napoli have scored at least 2 goals in 6 of their last 5 home games
