Atalanta vs Napoli Football Prediction
Juventus have no intention of stopping and Saturday also won on the Fiorentina field, climbing to 40 points on 14 league days. If it continues on these rhythms, for Naples it would be useless to improve the record made with Sarri last year. Yet to continue to keep alive a championship that seems already closed, it would be very important to win a return to minus eight by the bianconeri. To do so will serve a victory in the field of Atalanta, not easy.
The team coached by Gasperini despite having lost in the last game played at Empoli, is in fact a clear recovery compared to the first days of the championship. Just look at the number of goals scored: it has scored 16 in the last five Serie A games (3.2 average per game), when he had scored only two in the previous six.
The Atalanta is a complicated opponent for Napoli, especially since there is Gasperini coach: in the last five precedents the budget is three victories for Atalanta against the two of Naples.
The latest news on the formations
The coach dell’Atalanta Gasperini will have to give up Ilicic, a player who had been very important in the return of the last games. In his place given the contemporary unavailability in attack of Barrow, he should play Rigoni on the trocar together with the “Papu” Gomez, with the former Zapata in the role of central striker. The form of play will be as usual 3-4-2-1, with the defense formed by Mancini, Palomino and Masiello who will replace the injured Toloi. The central midfield pair will be formed as usual by De Roon and Freuler, Hateboer and Gosens will be the outsiders.
On the other hand, the coach Ancelotti should opt for the most competitive version of Napoli, with the titolarissimi: Callejon (dry goals in official matches for almost 200 days), Allan, Hamsik and Fabian Ruiz in midfield, with Insigne and Mertens , recently signed with regularity, in attack. The only doubts concern the defense for the not perfect physical condition of Raul Albiol: in his place there will be Maksimovic, who would play from right back in place of Hysaj in case of recovery of the Spaniard.
