Napoli take on the visitors Atalanta in the round 33 match of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Monday, April 22nd at Stadio San Paolo (Naples).
Napoli recently got knocked out of the Europa League. If the first match for the Neapolitans turned out to be a failure, then in the second game Ancelotti used a hybrid scheme (3-5-2 in offence and 4-4-2 in defense). Napoli attacked much better than in the first match, but failed to score because of poor implementation (think of José Maria Calejon), a large number of offsides. In the Napoli championship, they definitely will not get anywhere from the zone of getting into the Champions League; Inter, with a strong desire, can shift them from second place, but will definitely not fall below the third Napoli. Theoretically, Napoli still has chances for a championship, but Juventus, I think, will still be able to score at least one point in 6 matches.

Atalanta for the quality of the game deserves to fall into the zone of the Champions League, but their last match (game against Empoli) clearly demonstrates why Atalanta still has questions about the European campaign for the next season: Atalanta struck 47 shots on goal for that match, 17 of which were on target. And how many goals did Atalanta score? That's right, 0. Such monstrous anomalies, alas, sometimes have a place to be, and often they take very important points from a very, very nice team. However, Atalanta is still in the race for getting into the League.
I recommend watching this match to everyone. There will be many tactical nuances, this match is a tactical duel between Carlo Ancelotti and Gian Piero Gasperini. Achelotti is a guru of hybrid schemes, he can, in case of emergencies, perfectly reconstruct the game plan during the match. It does not always bring results, but the impression remains just crazy (remember the home match against Juventus, where Napoli, playing in the minority, had to at least not lose). Gian Piero Gasperi has developed an excellent system, the quality of the game Atalanta in Serie A is steeper than many teams (many, if not all). Atalanta is very good at pressing, although they are in sixth place, she has a clear shortage of points compared to xPTS, which only speaks of bad luck. I think this match should be bright.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score - yes.
