Match Preview

  • Atalanta have won six Serie A (SA) matches in a row, netting 21 goals during this run. All six of those fixtures featured over 2.5 goals and both teams scoring, whilst there’s been exactly five match goals in each of Atalanta’s three fixtures since the restart.
  • At home, the hosts have won six of their last eight league games (D1, L1), with five of those wins seeing them net over 2.5 team goals. In fact, just one of their 14 home league games this season witnessed under 2.5 match goals, and subsequently, their home fixtures have seen a league-high average of 4.43 goals.
  • Napoli are also in great form after winning five consecutive SA games, leading at half-time in the last three. The ‘Partenopei’ have won by a two-goal margin in the last two, but three of their last four away wins yielded just a one-goal margin of victory.
  • The visitors have won five straight competitive matches on the road, keeping a clean sheet in three. Four of those matches saw Napoli net the opener, as they’ve done in 42.86% of their away league outings (six) this term.
  • Players to watch: Duván Zapata (ATA) has scored three SA goals since the restart, with two arriving before HT. Dries Mertens (NAP) has netted the opener in three of the last four competitive matches in which he’s scored, and in two of the last four H2Hs.
  • Stat attack: Atalanta have won the race to three corners in just two of their 14 home league matches (W8, D2, L4).
  • There’s been over 3.5 goals in 11 of Atalanta’s SA home games (78.57%).
  • Napoli have lost all three SA away matches they’ve played against teams currently above them in the table, each by a one-goal margin.
  • There’s been 4+ yellow cards in all three of Atalanta’s matches since the restart (5.0 per game).
