Gattuso: 'Furious with Napoli'

Gennaro Gattuso was ‘furious’ with his Napoli players after their 2-0 defeat to Atalanta, claiming ‘we talked too much and threw away’ the points.

Napoli were on a five-match winning run going into the game and had just won the Coppa Italia, but their Champions League hopes were seemingly ended by a second-half Atalanta salvo.

“Atalanta didn’t start all that brilliantly, it was us who made the mistakes for their goals,” Gattuso told DAZN.

UEFA: 'Decision on fans soon'

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin says a decision should be made on fans’ attendance at Champions League and Europa League games by ‘July 10’.

Probable line-ups: Atalanta-Napoli

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini must choose between Mario Pasalic and Josip Ilicic in the starting line-up against Napoli, who should arrive in Bergamo without any big surprises.

The Orobici have hit the ground running after the break but Gasp hopes to hit the reset button ahead of the match against Napoli and prepare carefully for a big test against the Champions League hopeful.

La Dea could opt for a 3-4-2-1 formation and have to cope without Jose Luis Palomino in defence and Mattia Caldara looks set to take his place in the side.
