Reason For Napoli VS Atalanta Betting Tips

With Napoli facing a Coppa Italia semi-final on Tuesday night, one of the most exciting games in this weekend’s round of Serie A matches has been moved up to the early kick off on Saturday. Hopefully that move won’t take the sting out of what could be a fantastic encounter. The Partenopei are hosting the shock European challengers Atalanta this weekend. There’s just six points between these two in the table going in to the weekend. Could the visitors blow the Champions League race wide open with a victory?

This should be a really good game, given Atalanta’s brilliant season so far. They’re the shock side currently holding a Europa League place, and they’re still in contention for qualifying for the Champions League. This is likely to be a key fixture in the battle for the top three, with Inter Milan and Lazio aiming to hunt down Napoli, along with the visitors to the San Paolo this weekend. It won’t be an easy game for the Partenopei, with la Dea winning six and drawing three of their 13 away trips this term.

This will also be a stern test of Atalanta’s good away record, they head to a Napoli side who have taken 2.31 points per game at home this season. The Partenopei have scored in every outing at the San Paolo this term, so don’t expect a clean sheet for the visitors. Atalanta are facing the league’s highest scoring side, one who have averaged 2.31 goals per game at home. The hosts have scored 12 times in their last three Serie A matches, so they’re coming in to this clash in fantastic form in front of goal. That should see the hosts score against la Dea.

The visitors have the third best away record in Serie A, scoring an impressive 1.54 goals per trip. Atalanta have found the net in 77% of their games on the road, failing to score in just one of their last 10 matches on their travels. Napoli are far from solid at the back, letting in a goal per game at home in the league. They’ve kept just two clean sheets in 14 in all competitions, so we’re expecting a goal for la Dea.

Form and momentum point to the visitors scoring at least once in this game. On top of that, 69% of Napoli’s matches at home have seen both teams score. The hosts have also seen over 2.5 goals in 68% of their Serie A outings, so we’re backing plenty of goals at the San Paolo. We’re backing over 2.5 goals and both teams to score on Saturday evening, which is priced at 11/10 with bet365.

 

Head To Head

Napoli have won four of their last five matches at home to Atalanta.

Napoli VS Atalanta Stats
