Napoli vs Atalanta
Italy – Serie A
Date: Monday, 22nd April 2019
Kick-off at 18.00 UK/ 19.00 CET
Venue: Stadio San Paolo (Naples).
Napoli has been the best team in Italy bar Juventus. They enjoy a healthy lead at the runner up spot and are favorites to represent the country in the next edition of the Champions League. Moreover, they have been steady at home this season, and have returned one of the best returns as far as goals in front of the home crowd are concerned.
Atalanta is currently in possession of the final European spot. With a lead of just one point to hang on, their future is not secure yet. But one thing that the squad will find immense pride in their offensive ability. While they have scored the second-most number of goals in the league, just one fewer than Juventus, not even the seven-time defending champions could match their record on the road.

Napoli vs Atalanta Prediction
Napoli has the home advantage for this tie and has a 14-point lead over their counterparts in the league table. Also, disregarding Juve, the team has been the best at home in Italy this season. Going on, the team remained unbeaten in 21 of their last 22 home ties and won 16 of them as well. In fact, their sole loss at home came against Juventus, and that too with a very close scoreline.
H2h matches too put Napoli as the favorites. Eight of the last twelve overall h2h wins and eight of the last eleven at this venue went to Napoli. As such, count on the hosts to post three points on the board this Monday.
The story doesn’t end there though. Atalanta possesses one of the finest offensive lines in Italy. They have scored the second-most number of goals, 64, with the highest return being 65 by Juve. On the road, not even Juventus could catch them with just 30 goals, while Atalanta has 35 so far. Moreover, seven of the last ten h2h ties had goals from both teams, and Napoli failed to keep a clean sheet in their last eight match-ups.
