Pašalić (47′ ) scored the goals of the match for Atalanta. Atalanta registers significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth special attention.

Analysis of Atalanta

The home team comes to this 2nd leg match after an away goalless draw, so in case of a win they will have the advantage in the aggregate result. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 5 draws and 1 loss in away matches, with 31 goals scored and 14 conceded; against 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 30 goals scored and 25 conceded. They come to this match after a home draw against Torino by (3‑3). Atalanta has won 6, tied 3 and lost 1 of the last 10 home matches. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 28 of the last 30 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals and 22 out of 30 have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

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

The away team comes to this 2nd leg match after a goalless draw in the 1st leg and the advantage of not having conceded any home goals. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses in away matches, with 22 goals scored and 18 conceded; against 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 31 goals scored and 16 conceded. In their last match, for the Serie A, they got an away loss against Genoa by (2‑1). In the last 10 away matches Napoli has won 4, tied 1 and lost 5. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 6 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

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.
