Serie A is back this weekend, we begin with three games on Saturday and the middle clash of those could be one of the games of the weekend from anywhere in Europe. Atalanta, currently in 5th in the league, host Napoli, who sit in 4th, just one point separates the teams and this looks sure to be a good one.Atalanta Form Guide
Atalanta have made a solid start to the new season, winning six of their 12 games so far. Add in two draws and they have 20 points on the board, that puts them 11 off league leaders Inter Milan, but just one behind Napoli in the race for the top four, who of course, they could go above with a win here.
But Atalanta do come here without a win from their last two league games. They were held 1-1 by struggling Udinese before the break, and lost 2-1 at home to Inter Milan before that, though did receive a red card in that game to make life much tougher. They won 1-0 at home to Sturm Graz in Europe in between those two games.Napoli Form Guide
The current title holders are in a battle to keep hold of it, and if Napoli don't start flying soon, they are going to have a huge deficit to overturn. Sat in 4th with 21 points, they are 10 points off league leaders Inter Milan, that's a gap that can't be allowed to grow any bigger in the coming weeks.
Here on the back of a disappointing loss before the break, Napoli lost 1-0 at home to Empoli in their last game, a team struggling near the foot of the table. They've won one of their last four in all competitions, an away 2-0 win over bottom club Salernitana, we need to see a lot more from this team, and fast.Match Prediction
I respect Napoli as current title holders, but I am going to side with Atalanta here. They'll feel capable of getting something, and with how Napoli are playing, I think Atalanta can take all three points from this game, and record a huge win.
