Atalanta – Napoli : Preview & Prediction
Atalanta Bergamo has the home advantage to validate their ticket for the Italian Cup final after their draw in this semi-final first leg in Naples (0-0) on February 3. The formation of Gasperini, finalist of this Italian Cup in 2019, hopes to rewrite history and is two matches away from winning the trophy for the second time in its history after 1963.

Atalanta eliminated Cagliari (3-1) and Lazio Rome (3- 2) and will do everything to get Naples out. Napoli, tied on points in Serie A with their opponent of the day, will be under pressure since the Insignia team (9 league goals) remains on 3 setbacks far from their Maradona stadium. Indeed, the formation of Gattuso failed against Juventus (2-0) on neutral ground in the Super Cup, on the ground of Hellas Verona (3-1) and on the lawn of Genoa (2-1). Napoli have taken out Empoli (3-2) and Spezia (4-2) at home in the previous two rounds and will play on opposing ground for the first time in this competition.
