Napoli – Atalanta, Serie A Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR NAPOLI - ATALANTA
Napoli did not do their job to kick out Arsenal. The strange thing is that the Neapolitans did not even show a bit of what they are capable of, and Arsenal, we know they are weak guests this season. Still, for Napoli, the end of the season is just to keep the second place. At home they are very strong and now they will have the opportunity to face a team that this time will hardly think so much about defense as it needs victories.
Undoubtedly, Atalanta has one of the strongest attacks in the league and “guilty” is Zapata. Definitely Atalanta have chances to be in the top 4, but they have to prove they are worthy and show character, not only at home, but also as a guest. And that means they have to beat the best teams, like Napoli. The Atalanta are extremely disappointed with the draw with Empoli, in which they made dozens of attempts, but did not score a goal.
We think it is logical to see goals in view of the fact that Atalanta is not ok with the draw. We think that at some point they will open and Napoli will score, and that will make the game quite goal scoring. Napoli, however, has had some defensive problems lately and, as mentioned, Atalanta has Zapata, so our forecast for this match will be over 2.5 goals at 1.64.
- 6 of the last 8 games of Napoli are over 2.5 goals
- Atalanta scored a goal in 10 of the last 12 away games in the league
