Now, Atalanta recovered its best version after some seasons with adverse results. It is clear that the generational change finally happened and now La Dea wants to fight for the domestic title taking advantage of the fact that candidate teams in sports betting such as Inter or Milan gave up points by playing the Champions League simultaneously.

Last Napoli matches

Gli Azzurri is the sensation of European football. Not only for winning, liking and scoring, but for the offensive proposal that does not distinguish rivals or stadiums.
