19:45, 04 dec 2021
Napoli vs Atalanta prediction for Saturday’s Serie A clash at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in Naples. On course for their first Scudetto since 1989, Napoli host one of the most interesting teams in the Serie A Atalanta in round 16 of season 2021/22.

Napoli feeling the heat at the top

Napoli were saved by the VAR in their last match against Sassuolo as they drew 2-2. In fact, the Blues squandered a 2-0 lead and could lose the match in the dying minutes. However, Sassuolo’s third goal was disallowed after the referee reversed his decision and disallowed the goal. That was the second time in three matches that the Partnopei conceded two or more goals in their last three games.

Obviously, Spaletti will be concerned with his team’s unstable results in the last four games. To point out, Napoli won one drew two, and lost one in that run of games. Hence, as they host Atalanta, the Azzurri need to step up a gear again since their chasers Milan and Inter closed the gap. With five of the nine goals conceded this season coming in the last four matches, Napoli’s defense looked fragile in recent games.

A real test of character for La Dea

With a four-match winning streak and an eight-match unbeaten run, Atalanta could easily make it a four-team race for the Scudetto. To explain, a positive result in Naples will keep La Dea five points or less from the top of the table. And given their incredible away record this season, anything is possible by Gasperini’s men. In fact, Atalanta won five and drew two of their seven games on the road.

Moreover, with those results, La Dea are Serie A’s best away team with 19 points. Also, they conceded the least goals playing on the road with six goals while Gasperini’s attack netted just over two goals a game. In effect, and with a fine h2h record as well with Napoli, the Nerazzurri may go for the win if they can stop the Napoli attack. Hence we will see a similar tactic by Gasperini that he adopted against Juventus and was successful.

Napoli vs Atalanta Prediction

Undoubtedly, this match is round 16’s most awaited one with two of the most exciting teams going head-to-head. As we look at the odds, the bookies are offering high prices for a Napoli win with 2.29, and rightly so since Atalanta’s away record is the best in Serie A. 

Consequently, it will be tough to predict the winner, especially with Napoli’s form lately. So looking at the scoring form of both teams, Napoli scored in their last six games. While Atalanta’s last match in which where they failed to score was in the second round of the season. 

As a result, and with both teams scoring in their last two h2h games, we will back both teams to score in this match. And for our second prediction, we will back under 3.5 goals since both coaches will focus on their defense and things might get very tight.
