Venue: St. James’s Park.

Newcastle fans have been eagerly waiting for this season to commence ever since they were taken over by their new owners. They have made some promising signings and will gun for a victory this Friday against Italian heavyweights Atalanta.

However, Atalanta are no strangers to challenges. They have transformed themselves into one of the best teams in Italy in the past few years and as of now they could be considered one of the perennial contenders for a top-4 finish in Serie A.

They find pride in identifying themselves as an attacking side. Free flowing football with constant intrusions into the opposite box is a familiar sight for whoever follows this squad.

Expect more of the same this weekend as well and it will be interesting to see how the Newcastle defense will deal with these attacks.

At the same time, the Magpies will have a point to prove this season. Count on them to deliver a great performance as well.

By the looks of things, it is expected that we are about to witness goals coming in plenty from either end of the pitch.
