Our football match prediction:
Stadio Olimpico will host Tuesday’s football game between Napoli and Atalanta. Napoli are still playing on three fronts and it is more than obvious that coach Maurizio Sarri wants to win everything. The Italian tactician rested several first-team regulars in a 1-0 win over Udinese in the Coppa Italia last 16, but given the quality of Atalanta, we predict that he is going to count on key players in the quarter-finals. The Orobici have been scoring goals for fun in the Serie A of late, but beating Napoli on the road is easier said than done and we do not believe that they are going to spoil the Partenopei’s party at Stadio Olimpico. The Neapolitans have been impressive at home ground so far this season and they are likely to book their place in the Italian Cup quarter-finals without any difficulties. In their last meeting in Naples Maurizio Sarri’s men defeated Atalanta 3-1.
