After sealing a place in the group stage of the Champions League this season it will be interesting to see how Napoli will play in Serie A this season as their fans will be hoping they can also challenge for the league title.

Napoli come into this game with a proven attack but their defence still look too generous for their ambition as they have kept just one clean sheet in their matches against the top 10 teams in the league last season.

With Dries Mertens still as sharp as ever leading their attack supported by the likes of Lorenzo Insigne they could be handful for Atalanta in this game.

Atalanta were the surprise package of Serie A last season as they finished above Inter and AC Milan.

They have lost a large part of the players who made that campaign a success with the likes of Franck Kessie and Andrea Conti moving to Milan.

They lost their opening game last weekend 0-1 to Roma however they did play well throughout.

Facing another top three team in the first two weeks may prove too much of a challenge for them.

Atalanta have scored in all of their away matches against the top 5 sides in the league last season and they will be hoping to repeat that this season.
