Neither of these two sides have enjoyed the most consistent of seasons but it is Napoli that will be desperate to take something away from the Stadio Gewiss on Sunday. They are just three points behind Milan but could go top – albeit temporarily – with a win in Bergamo.
Where and when: Stadio Gewiss – 3 April, kick-off 14:00

Last time: Atalanta have enjoyed playing Napoli in recent seasons and won at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in December after being 2-1 down with half an hour to play.
Atalanta vs. Napoli Predictions and Preview
The 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Milan at the beginning of March doesn’t seem to have had a devastating effect on Napoli’s scudetto aspirations but they cannot afford to slip up from now on in. With just eight games to play, the title race is still very much on but the Partenopei have to come away from Bergamo with at least a point to stay in touch.
After being knocked out of the Europa League by Barcelona, Napoli know that Serie A is the only route to European football next season but will still have their eyes on the bigger prize.
Atalanta’s season has stalled a little since the start of the year and now La Dea are clinging on to the Europa Conference League spot and finding it hard to score the goals that were once their trademark.
Atalanta vs. Napoli full time result odds
Atalanta go into this one as the favourites thanks to their home advantage, but it is Napoli that have looked more impressive in recent weeks. Both teams have been hit hard by injury – and Napoli will also have to do without Victor Osimhen and Amir Rrahmani, who are both suspended for this one. But the visitors still seem good for the three points and odds of 2/1 for the away win show good value.
Atalanta vs. Napoli both teams to score odds
Atalanta have relinquished the title of goal kings of Serie A this season – and have not been helped by injuries to a number of strikers – and Napoli have emerged as the stingiest defence in the league. But the Partenopei have conceded in their last two games, even though they eventually won both, so there could be something to celebrate for both sides on Sunday too. Both teams to score is priced at around 7/10.
Atalanta vs. Napoli correct score odds
Napoli beat Hellas Verona and Udinese by the same 2-1 scoreline in their games before the international break and there could very well be the chance for a repeat performance in Bergamo at the weekend. Even with the players not available for this one, there is the talent to score goals, so a 2-1 Napoli win at 10/1 looks good.
Atalanta vs. Napoli first goalscorer odds
Usually, if Napoli have been tipped to win it is Victor Osimhen that is likely to appear on the scoresheet in some way or the other. But the Nigeria international is suspended for this one and that leaves the market wide open. Teenage sensation Moustapha Cissé scored the winner for Atalanta against Bologna but Napoli could get the opening goal on Sunday. Dries Mertens might be given a start and he is 11/2 to be first goalscorer.
