Napoli begin the weekend top of Serie A but could be third by the time this game begins. They host Atalanta who are in good form and fourth in the table. Napoli are a point clear of Milan and two ahead of Inter, but both play earlier on Saturday. The home side were in great form at the start of the season but have slipped a bit of late. Only one of their last five games has been won and they'll be kicking themselves after the events of December 1. They led 2-0 at Sassuolo but only came home with a point. Napoli will be hoping for more goals from Dries Mertens who has scored three in the last two matches. Home form for Napoli has produced six wins and a draw in Serie A with 15 goals scored and two conceded.
Atalanta will be tough opponents for the league leaders. They have the best away record in Serie A with 19 points from seven games with 15 goals and six conceded. Atalanta can go to within two points of Napoli if winning this game. They are unbeaten in their last nine league and cup games and without a loss in eight Serie A matches. Not since March have they lost an away game in Serie A and that was to Inter. They are unbeaten in 13 away league matches and this season have drawn at Inter and recently won at Juventus. A bet on both teams scoring is the one to go for, a side bet of a double chance on Atalanta might be pofitable.
