In a blockbuster clash, Serie A leaders Napoli will welcome fourth-placed Atalanta at the Stadio Maradona for their next domestic league match on Sunday, December 5. The home side will head into this fixture after playing out a 2-2 draw against Sassuolo in the midweek.
The visitors, on the other hand, dismantled Venezia 4-0 in their most recent fixture. Following Napoli’s midweek meltdown and Atalanta’s thumping win, now just four points separate the two sides on the Serie A table.
A win in this game will bring Atalanta closer to the top spot while their opponent will look to increase the gap with second-place AC Milan by collecting all three points on display.
The Serie A match between Napoli and Atalanta BC will kick off at 1:15 am (IST).
