THE TEAM NEWS

ATALANTA

  • Atalanta continued their superb run of form as they made it eight consecutive wins in all competitions with a hard-fought success on the road at Udinese which came on the back of yet more attacking brilliance.
  • Atalanta made it four successive Serie A games where they have scored at least three goals with their win on Sunday with a strike from Duvan Zapata backed up by a brace from Luis Muriel in the 2-3 success.
  • The three points consolidated Atalanta’s spot in fourth but this will be a difficult challenge as they host Napoli and they will have to do so without the services of Ruslan Malinovskyi who is banned and that should lead to a start for Muriel following his heroics at the weekend.

NAPOLI

  • Napoli were given a small scare against lowly SPAL at the weekend but they were able to make it five Serie A wins in a row thanks to that 3-1 win and they will travel to Atalanta full of confidence.
  • Napoli looked comfortable from the off and took an early lead thanks to Dries Mertens’ fourth minute strike but SPAL surprisingly got themselves on level terms just before the half-hour mark, although that parity was short lived as Jose Callejon put Napoli ahead again.
  • Amin Younes sealed the win with a strike in the final 15 minutes and they now make the trip to Atalanta in rude health with Allan the only significant absentee as the central midfielder sits out with injury for the second game in succession.

THE PREDICTION

Atalanta are in a great position to qualify for next season’s Champions League after earning a sixth straight league win when defeating Udinese at the weekend. They hold a nine-point league over fifth-placed Roma ahead of this game with Napoli but it will not be an easy task with the visitors also arriving in good form. Napoli have won their last five matches in Serie A and will pose plenty of questions but the hosts’ form in front of goal should ensure they come out victorious in this one.
