'Atalanta must be perfect' to beat Napoli

Stefano Colantuono warns Atalanta “need the perfect performance” to get the better of Napoli at the San Paolo on Sunday.

“Napoli will arrive full of motivation and eager to make up for last week’s defeat,” said the Coach.

“We need the perfect performance and even that might not be enough, because Walter Mazzarri’s team move like a well-oiled machine.

“They were just unlucky to run into Juventus in the Scudetto race. We will try to stop them with determination, but won’t hold back on attacking with our own style of football. Edinson Cavani hasn’t scored in a while, but he remains an incredibly strong striker.”

Luca Cigarini returns to the squad after injury, while Carlos Carmona is back after his ban.

Atalanta squad for Napoli: Biondini, Bonaventura, Brienza, Brivio, Canini, Carmona, Cazzola, Cigarini, Consigli, Contini, Del Grosso, Denis, Ferri, Frezzolini, Giorgi, Livaja, Lucchini, Moralez, Parra, Radovanovic, Raimondi, Stendardo, Troisi
