Over their past six games alone, the sum total of 20 goals have gone in for both teams combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 11 of those being chalked up by La Dea. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward here, of course.

Team News: Atalanta
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just a single fitness concern for the Atalanta gaffer Gian Gasperini to contend with from of an almost fully healthy squad. Hans Hateboer (Ankle problems) is sidelined.
Team News: Napoli
Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso has some current player fitness concerns. Diego Demme (Hamstring Injury), Elseid Hysaj (Calf Problems), David Ospina (Adductor problems), Konstantinos Manolas (Distortion of the ankle), Andrea Petagna (Unknown Injury), Dries Mertens (Ankle Injury) and Hirving Lozano (Hamstring Injury) will not be playing here.
We’re thinking that Napoli might well have a job on their hands to find the net against this Atalanta side who we think should gain the upper hand.
We’re therefore anticipating a very even contest with a 1-0 winning margin for Atalanta when all is said and done.
Expecting it to be tight.
