Analysis of Atalanta
Atalanta comes to this match after a 3-3 home draw against Torino. The home club usually plays in a 5-2-3 tactical system, favoring a more offensive style of play, attacking through the side aisles. In the tactical formation used, the three players with a more offensive mission should be Josip Ilicic, Ruslan Malinovskyi and Luis Muriel. For this match, coach Gian Piero Gasperini should not be able to count on central defender Bosko Sutalo because he is still in the medical department.
Analysis of Napoli
Napoli comes to this clash unmotivated after a 2-1 away defeat to Genoa. The away team usually plays in a 4-3-3, favoring a faster playing style, with the three most advanced pieces being Hirving Lozano, Andrea Petagna and Matteo Politano. The man responsible for defining and conducting his team’s attacks is the Macedonian Eljif Elmas, a player with an enviable vision of the game. Coach Gennaro Gattuso will not be able to count on Dries Mertens, Faouzi Ghoulam and Kalidou Koulibaly for being in the medical department.
