SSC Napoli vs Atalanta Bergamo begins 22.04.2019 at 19:00 CET
Napoli disappointed against Arsenal in the quarter-finals of Europa League, while in the Serie A it plays variably. The Neapolitans won in the previous round, although they faced next-to-last Chieve so it was no wonder that they won by 3-1. On the other hand, Napoli scored no goals in two Europa League matches with Arsenal and was fully deservedly eliminated. They totally underperformed in London and lost 2-0, and already then it was clear that will not go any further. Napoli played a bit better the rematch in Naples but they nevertheless lost by 1-0. By the end of season they will fight only to defend the second place in the Italian championship. Manager Anceloti has no bigger problems with injuries ahead of the match.
Probable lineups SSC Napoli: Meret – Malcuit, Maksimovic, Koulibaly, Rui – Callejon, Allan, Ruiz, Zielinski – Mertens, L. Insigne
Atalanta has no obligations in Europe, while in the Serie A and Coppa Italia it has eight-game unbeaten streak. They won four times and they drew the same number of times, and that includes two previous matches. Interestingly, they drew both times without scoring a single goal despite being one of most efficient teams in the league this season. Goalless away draw with Inter is a good result, but we expected to triumph over Empoli in the previous round. That didn’t happen as Atalanta missed number of good chances, or more precisely Empoli’s goalkeeper defended all shots on goal, so they lost two valuable points. Now, the same team goes on the pitch.
Probable lineups Atalanta: Gollini – Palomino, Mancini, Masiello – Hateboer, Freuler, de Roon, Castagne – Gomez, Ilicic – Zapata
