Our prediction for this Serie A match:
High-flying Napoli will be looking to stay in the race for Scudetto with a win over Atalanta at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia. The Neapolitans recorded a routine 2-0 win over Chievo at the weekend and they head into Sunday’s football match against the Orobici following a 4-2 triumph over Benfica in the Champions League. Maurizio Sarri is doing a great job with the San Paolo outfit and summer signing Milik looks unstoppable at the moment. Atalanta, on the other hand, returned to winning ways at the weekend, with the team beating rock-bottom Crotone on the road, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Napoli. The Orobici are tough to beat at home, but seeing that they have already suffered two defeats at their Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia, we predict that the in-form visitors are going to emerge triumphant in Sunday’s Serie A clash.
