Team News: Atalanta
El Bilal Touré (Hamstring injury), Rafael Tolói (unknown injury) and José Luis Palomino (Hamstring injury) won’t be able to feature for Atalanta boss Gian Gasperini. Marten de Roon cannot play in this game through suspension.
In all likelihood, La Dea will probably employ a 3-4-1-2 formation and select Marco Carnesecchi, Giorgio Scalvini, Berat Djimsiti, Sead Kolasinac, Hans Hateboer, Davide Zappacosta, Ederson, Teun Koopmeiners, Mario Pasalic, Ademola Lookman and Gianluca Scamacca.
Team News: Napoli
Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri has multiple availability issues to deal with. Alex Meret (Calf injury), Jesper Lindstrøm (Shin injury) and Mário Rui (Hamstring injury) can’t be considered.
We are inclined to think that Partenopei might utilise a 4-3-3 formation using Pierluigi Gollini, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, Amir Rrahmani, Natan, Mathias Olivera, A. Zambo Anguissa, Stanislav Lobotka, Eljif Elmas, Matteo Politano, Giacomo Raspadori and K. Kvaratskhelia.
It seems to us that SSC Napoli and Atalanta could well cancel each other out, with goals at a real premium.
Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a game with minimal goal-scoring opportunities. We’re therefore tipping a very even match with a 0-0 scoreline when the full-time whistle blows.
