Atalanta vs Napoli – Preview, and Prediction

Atalanta vs Napoli -A real buzz is expected in and around Gewiss Stadium on Saturday afternoon when the top two Serie A teams take on each other in the derby of Matchday No 13.

Napoli have been flying high since the beginning of the season and are by far the hottest team in the entire continent at the moment, I Partinopei have an amazing record of 10 wins and 2 draws in the opening 12 rounds of the season.

When you add their high-profile displays in the UEFA Champions League and five wins in the opening five group phase games in the section with the likes of Liverpool, Ajax, and Rangers, you have to give words of praise for the magnificent job Luciano Spalletti has done with this group of players so far in the season.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia stood out as one of the best young players in Europe this season. He has been brilliant so far in the campaign, netting six goals in Serie A as an offensive midfielder.

The Georgian star was quite inspired last weekend, too, as he was the main catalyst to Napoli’s impressive 4-0 thumping of Sassuolo with two assist and a goal at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

It will be very interesting to see how Napoli will deal with Atalanta who will also come into this tie on a high following the easy 0-2 victory over Empoli six days ago away at Stadio Carlo Castellani.
