One of the most exciting teams in Europe, Atalanta, ready to pull off another upset in Serie A

<div><h2>Napoli vs Atalanta</h2><p><a href=""><strong>Wednesday, October 20, at Stadio San Paolo (Naples)</strong></a></p><p>Napoli failed to close the gap on the top spots after being kept to 1-1 draw on the road by Spal. Despite this negative result the hosts are still 4th in the standings, 6 points behinds leaders Juventus. On the other side, Atalanta immediately bounced back after getting trashed 5-1 by Man City on the road in the Champions League, destroying Udinese 7-1 on their turf. Napoli were seen as the main opponent for Juventus this season, but they are far from impressing this season. Atalanta are unbeaten in their previous 7 Serie A games being once again the best attacking side in the league with 28 goals netted in 9 matches. They managed to close the gap on Inter and Juventus to 2 and 3 points respectively. Both teams are playing a positive, attacking football and we expect this match to be one of the most entertaining matches to watch this week in European football. The great thing about Atalanta is that their UCL defeats never messed with their morale.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Atalanta’s best player Duvan Zapata is two weeks away from full fitness but it looks like that’s not a problem for his teammates. If it’s not Zapata, it’s Luis Muriel who took advantage of Zapata being injured and arrived at 8 goals netted so far this season for Atalanta sitting 2nd in the top-scorers chart behind Ciro Immobile. Atalanta might also be without their experienced defender Andrea Masiello but when you are Atalanta you don’t need defenders, right? On the other side, Napoli have no injury issues so they will probably use their best starting XI.</p><p><a href=";a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Napoli hate playing against defensive-approach opposition. That’s why they failed to win against Spal, Cagliari, Torino. But they love to play against teams like Atalanta, who are always playing a positive football. We don’t expect Atalanta to be title challengers, but we expect them to impress once again if they will have the same approach, they might easily return home with at least 1 point. That’s just a lean…haven’t been at their best recently but it’s time for this poor period to end. We expect a thrilling match with at least 3 goals on the scoreboard.</p><p><a href=";a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Serie A Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Over 3 goals AH in the match at 1.78 with Pinnacle</strong></em></a></p></div>
