The probable formations of Napoli-Atalanta

The big match of the 26th day will pit Napoli and Atalanta against each other. Kickoff on Saturday, March 11 at 6 p.m. at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium. The partenopei will be looking to quickly forget the knockout with Lazio in the previous round and resume their sprint toward the Scudetto, while the bergamaschi want to redeem their recent outings and get back to scoring points in the Champions League.

Spalletti is expected to rely on the starters, despite the return leg of the round of 16 with Eintracht Frankfurt scheduled for Wednesday, March 15. Protecting Meret will be Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Kim and Olivera. In attack it will be Politano who will complete the trident with Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia.

In the Orobici there will be the return of Scalvini, who will join Djimsiti and Toloi to form the defensive trio in front of Musso. In the middle of the field space for Ederson next to De Roon, given the absence of Koopmeiners. On the offensive side trust Pasalic, Lookman and one of Hojlund and Zapata.

Likely lineups.

NAPOLI (4-3-3): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Kim, Olivera; Anguissa, Lobotka, Zielinski; Politano, Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia. All: Spalletti

ATALANTA (3-4-1-2): Musso; Toloi, Djimsiti, Scalvini; Zappacosta, De Roon, Ederson, Maehle; Pasalic; Lookman, Zapata. All: Gasperini
