Atalanta Bergamo vs SSC Napoli / Serie A – The last match in the 14th round of Italian Serie A brings us the ninth Atalanta and the second Napoli, which currently has 11 points more. However, we have to point out that both teams are playing very good lately, especially in attack, which is why we expect a very interesting and completely open match on Monday night in Bergamo. We also need to add that both of their last season‘s duels in the championship ended in favour of Napoli, while Atalanta was better in the national Cup.
Atalanta Bergamo vs SSC Napoli begins 03.12.2018 at 20:30 CET
However, Atalanta now announces that they will do their utmost best to finally celebrate over Napoli in the championship, especially since they, in the last two matches, made a convincing victory of 3-0 over Parma and 4-1 over Inter. The team from Bergamo has also made two wins on the side in that period, but this great series was interrupted last weekend against Empoli in the championship, when they lost with 3-2 as guests.
However, coach Gasperini's players have first had a lead of 2-0, but it has cost them dearly when their offensive midfielder Ilicic got suspended, so they received the third goal in the 92nd minute from a penalty. But since they are now welcoming one of the best Italian teams, Atalanta will have to give its best to come to new points on Monday. They still cannot count on Iliic for this duel, while centre-back Varnier and striker Barrow are injured.
Probable lineups Atalanta Bergamo: Berisha – Toloi, Palomino, Masiello – Hateboer, de Roon, Freuler, Gosens – Pašalic, Gomez –Zapata
As for the guests from Naples, they are awaiting this championship duel with Atalanta after a very valuable victory over Red Star, which they defeated with 3-1 at home in the Champions League. Namely, the Napolitans have thus taken the leading position in their group with nine points won, with the proviso that they before their match with Liverpool in the last round, have one point more than PSG and three more than Reds, so everything is still completely open when it comes to placement in the round of sixteen.
However, Napoli will have to think about this big match at Anfield after they finish their obligations in the championship, where they first have a tough encounter with Atalanta, and then at home with Frosinone. Otherwise, coach Benitez and his players have in the last round of Serie A only played 0-0 against the last Chievo at home, but they still occupy the second place on the table, with one point more than Inter. We should also add that they cannot count on the injured centre-backs Albiol and Chiriches for this match, as well as the wing strikers Verdi and Younes.
Probable lineups SSC Napoli: Ospina – Hysaj, Maksimovic, Koulibaly, Mario Rui – Callejon, Allan, Hamsik, Zielinski – Milik, Insigne
Atalanta Bergamo vs SSC Napoli PICK
Atalanta has raised its form considerably, especially in attack and therefore we believe that they can, in this last match in the 14th round of Serie A, provide a worthy resistance to the favoured guests from Naples.
