The match

Napoli seem to be struggling after their fine start to the season, and next they have another stern test as they welcome Atalanta in Round 16 in Serie A. Napoli are still top of the league standings, with 36 points while an improving Atalanta has 31 points in fourth place. In the run up to this game, Napoli have just one win in the last five, and they’ve lost the defensive solidity too. They have one clean sheet in the last five matches, and in all five, they’ve managed to score. The hosts have scored two or more goals in three of the last four matches, the highlight of them being the 4-0 win over Lazio. Both sides have scored in four of Napoli’s last five matches and each of the last four has produced over 2.5 goals. In their last game, Napoli seemed to be strolling to a 2-0 win but late goals from Sassuolo meant they shared spoils. The 2-2 outcome marked the third time in four matches that they conceded at least twice.

Atalanta are on a high scoring run too; in their last five matches, they’ve netted 15 times. They’ve failed to score more than a goal in just one of the five matches and just like Napoli, they have 32 goals in their 15 league games so far. In their last game, Atalanta thumped Venezia 4-0, for the eighth time in 10 matches scoring two or more goals and they haven’t failed to score in their last 18 games across all competitions. Eight of their last 10 Serie A matches have produced over 2.5 goals and Atalanta have just two clean sheets in these 10 league games. Away from home they have six wins in their seven league matches this season. They haven’t lost in their last three matches against Napoli and in Napoli’s current form, Atalanta will be eyeing a win here.

Key Statistics

  • Eight of Atalanta’s last 10 Serie A matches have produced over 2.5 goals
  • Napoli have conceded two or more in three of their last four matches.
  • Napoli’s last four matches have produced over 2.5 goals.
  • Napoli have scored two or more in three of their last four matches.
  • Atalanta have scored in each of their last 18 matches.

The bet of our experts

Napoli have lost the solidity in defence that they had at the start of the season. Still, they remain the best defensive side in the league. They’ve been conceding quite a lot, and they will struggle to deal with the Atalanta attack. Atalanta are good going forward but they still have questions defensively and they too will have to be at their best against this Napoli side. Go for over 2.5 goals here.
