The most attractive match of this weekend in Serie A will be played this Saturday when Napoli hosts Atalanta which needs to win.
Napoli ended a great run and fell in their last game, although they still have a great advantage that allows them to be more than calm.
Atalanta for its part has been falling in the standings and its participation in Europe next season is beginning to be in danger.
Saturday, March 11 at noon ET at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona
Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Napoli?
And Napoli lost again in the league after almost 2 months. Last weekend the team from southern Italy lost at home to Lazio (0-1) and ended an 8-game winning streak, in what was only their second defeat in the entire Serie A. They continue to lead with 65 points and have a 15-point advantage over the second, Inter, so that setback may be anecdotal and the only thing is that it delays the title a little more.
Luciano Spalletti’s team is not demotivated by the defeat, on the contrary, they arrive with more hunger to win again in front of their fans, who despite the loss against Lazio, applauded them and recognized everything they have done throughout the season.
Some of the regular starters could rest for this game since tomorrow the team will play the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Victor Osimhen, Capocannonieri in Serie A (19), also saw his streak of 8 consecutive games scoring where he got 10 goals to come to an end.
Why Bet on Atalanta?
Atalanta is in a rut and has 3 games without a win, plus it has only achieved 4 points out of the last 15, which has caused the team to drop to sixth place with 42 points. At the moment they are qualifying for the Conference League and are 5 points behind Milan (Europa League) and Roma (Champions League). However, Juventus has recovered after the 15 points that were deducted from them and they are now only 7 points down, so they have to take care of themselves.
Last weekend they did not go beyond a goalless draw with Udinese, which is the second game without goals, something that worries the Bergamo team, which is usually one of the clubs that scored the most.
As visitors, they lost 2 of their last 3 games, against Sassuolo and Milan, and beat Lazio.
