Let’s check the latest news, stats, injury reports, and Italy Serie A odds for Atalanta vs Napoli. We’ve plenty of predictions for you to consider.
Atalanta: Huge struggles on home soil
Atalanta’s form has been bad as Gasperini’s men have won just three of their 10 fixtures since the winter break. Atalanta’s famed all-attack style has disappeared with La Dea averaging just 0.88 goals scored per game in their last nine matches. Probably, the most important reason for these attacking struggles is the fact that their star striker Duvan Zapata is injured.
Zapata returned to action against Cagliari at the beginning of February after missing the previous three games with a muscle injury. However, he suffered a new physical issue during the game with the Sardinians and he might be out till the end of the season. The hosts have chances to win the title and probably zero chances for a top-four finish so they are fighting for a Europa League spot together with AS Roma, Lazio, and Fiorentina.
They recorded a short and hard-fought 1-0 victory against Bologna before the international break climbing to the Conference League berth. Their home form has been horrendous all season long. They’ve won just four in 14 home games with the last one being against Sampdoria exactly one month ago.
They still have plenty of players who can change the face of the game and win them games but it’s risky to include Atalanta in our Soccer picks and parlays after seeing so many ups and downs in recent months. Atalanta will be hoping Luis Muriel can contribute on the scoresheet, as they’ve won 35 of the 41 matches he’s scored in.
Napoli: No Osimhen No Party
Napoli is sitting second in the standings, just three points behind leaders AC Milan. That’s exactly what neutral fans wish for, three teams fighting for the title till the last round. After the disappointing 1-0 defeat against the leaders, Napoli bounced back with two short wins against Verona and Udinese with their star striker Victor Osimhen scoring all four goals.
Unfortunately, the Osimhenl is suspended for this clash. missing their star striker will obviously be a blow for Napoli. In Dries Mertens, Spalletti has a more than capable deputy upfront, who has seven goals to his name despite playing a limited role this season. Still, Mertens is not Osimhen and he will probably struggle on goal.
Meret, Petagna, and Di Lorenzo remain in the recovery room for Napoli, while Rrahmani is also banned for this clash. It is their defense they can thank for their strong position in the league, having conceded just 22 goals this season, being the best defensive side in the league. Also, they are one of the best teams on the road losing just one in 15 away games all season long so if you’re betting online and you like your dogs, there’s plenty of value on Napoli to win this clash
Atalanta vs Napoli Head-to-Head
Atalanta has shown an ability to grind out results when needing them, winning three of their previous four fixtures by a one-goal margin. They’ve also won their last three mutual encounters against Napoli, including the 3-2 win from the reverse fixtures, and with each of those contests seeing both teams combine for four or more total goals on paper this particular game has a recent history of a high-scoring affair. Only leaders AC Milan have picked up more points on their travels than Napoli, who have also scored first in a league-high 12 of their 15 road games this term.

Atalanta vs Napoli Predictions
Despite having poor form all season long and missing their star striker till the end of the season, Atalanta enters this clash as favorites being priced at +140 on the three-way money line according to the latest Soccer odds while the goal-line is set at 2½.
If we are betting on stats, this game should go over but there’s a big catch. Both teams will be without their top scorers, this is the first match after the international break and given the importance of this match, the two sides should be more than happy with one point. Atalanta’s head-to-head record against Napoli is amazing but this match should be closer than the odds suggest.
Since the start of the season, we talked about betting on soccer and about the three ways. Yes, three ways as we also have the draw as a betting choice. When you can’t separate the two sides, simply go with the draw. On top of that, the price is always better on the draw. In terms of goals, we are against the trend as we expect a low-scoring contest.
