Napoli vs Atalanta Prediction, Betting Tip & Match Preview

Napoli - Atalanta prediction and analysis

Serie A sole leaders Napoli will look to get back to winning ways on Saturday.

When the always dangerous Atalanta team visits the "Estadio Diego Armando Maradona".

Last round, the Partenopei suffered a surprising home loss in Calcio against Lazio with 0-1.

But despite this, the Sky Blues have been such a dominant host throughout the campaign.

As the aforementioned loss against the Romans ended a 9-game winning streak at home for Napoli in the Calcio.

In this regard, it is difficult for me to imagine that the Partenopei will lose consecutive matches.

Especially against this very visiting team.

Atalanta have been in poor form in recent weeks, recording 1-1-4 in their previous 6 matches.

As in the last two of these losses, the Bergamo team conceded two goals each.

Meanwhile, the Neapolitans have scored 2+ goals in each of their previous 14 wins in all competitions.

I've also added the must-see goal from Viktor Osimhen to this combined prediction of mine.

Because Osimhen has been a consistent scorer for his team lately and is the leading scorer in Serie A.

Leicester vs Chelsea Prediction, Betting Tip & Match Preview

Napoli have won 7 of their last 8 matches

Napoli still boast a massive 15-point lead at the top of the Serie A standings.

Although they suffered a rare home loss the previous round when they hosted again.

Lazio recorded a thoroughly deserved 1-0 win at this venue a week ago.

Depriving Luciano Spalletti's side of the opportunity to extend their lead to 18 points.

Now the Neapolitans will have to be careful with the challenge of visiting La Dea.

Because the first Scudetto in over 30 years is still in their sights.

Atalanta are desperately looking to find their form. Having won just one of their previous 5 Serie A matches.

After this meeting, Luciano Spalletti's players have a rematch in the 1/8-final phase in the Champions League against Eintracht.

But he is set to be on the scoresheet after the 2-0 success on German soil 3 weeks ago.

Atalanta have lost 4 of their last 6 matches

Atalanta is experiencing serious difficulties in the month of February.

In fact, the negative streak for the Bergamaskis started already on the last day of January.

When they were eliminated from the Coppa Italia tournament after a narrow 0-1 loss away to Inter.

After that, Gasperini's formation was left with just 4 points and 3 goals scored in the last 5 games in Serie A.

"Thanks" to these poor results, the team from Bergamo fell to the 6th position in the standings.

And seriously began to fall behind the group of teams that are fighting for the Top 4 standings.

Something more.

If Atalanta does not improve its performance, no wonder Juventus or Bologna will dislodge them from the Europa zone as well.

Napoli team news

Luciano Spalletti still cannot rely on the services of suspended left-back Mario Rui.

Matias Olivera will continue to replace him on the left wing.

Napoli have an otherwise almost fully healthy squad to choose from.

As only Giacomo Raspadori is unavailable due to injury. 

Atalanta team news

Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini is still unable to use Colombian striker Duvan Zapata.

While Dutch winger Hans Hateboer is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Giorgio Scalvini is also expected to miss this game with an ankle injury.
