Atalanta vs Napoli
Date: Wednesday, 10 February 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Gewiss Stadium, Bergamo.
We will get the second Coppa Italia finalist on Wednesday evening when Atalanta and Napoli take on each other in the reverse fixture of their semi-final tie at Gewiss Stadium.
Although both teams tend to play attacking football, the first leg offered no goals at all. Atalanta were the better side on the pitch, though. They had seven shots on goal (to Napoli’s two) and took ten corners (to Napoli’s four) seven days ago at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Neither of the two sides were successful in their respective league matches at the weekend. La Dea shockingly dropped a three-goal lead to get just one point from the home encounter with Torino (a 3-3 draw).
The Partinopei, on the other side, fell 2-1 at Genoa. It is worth mentioning that Gennaro Gattuso left his stalwart winger Lorenzo Insigne on the bench (only came on just before the hour-mark) to give him a rest ahead of the second leg of the cup semi-final against Atalanta.
Atalanta vs Napoli Head-to-head
- Napoli still lead the head to head tie by two wins ahead of their 45th meeting with La Dea.
- Four of the last six head to head encounters saw the Over 2.5 goals FT& Both Teams To Score option “coming in”.
- Napoli claimed a 4-1 win when the two outfits locked horns in the first part of Serie A, in mid-October last year.
Atalanta vs Napoli Prediction
The stakes are high ahead of Wednesday’s clash with a title shot on the line. Neither of the two sides will get close to the Serie A trophy at the end of the season and the cup silverware may likely be their only chance for a title this term. We fancy Atalanta to come on top because of their strong display in the first leg.
Also, Gianpiero Gasperini’s troops have been scoring goals for fun lately on the home patch. They notched three or more goals in seven of the last nine games in all competitions at Gewiss Stadium. The home win is paid at the 1.85 odds.
We can hardly imagine a low-scoring scenario to happen once again here as both teams played high-scoring contests at the weekend. You can have the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score pick at the 1.83 odds.
