Atalanta aim to continue their fantastic start to the new season when they travel south to face Napoli on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 15:00).
Atalanta are unbeaten in three Serie A games against Napoli (W2 D1), while the last time they went four unbeaten against the Partenopei was in December 2007 (seven).
In the last seven Serie A games played in Campania between Napoli and Atalanta the same result has never been repeated twice in a row: three wins for the Partenopei, two for the Nerazzurri and two draws.
Napoli are unbeaten in eight Serie A home games in a row, thanks to seven wins and one draw, after having collected only five points in the previous eight (W1 D2 L5).
Atalanta have won their first three Serie A league games of the season for the first time in their history – their best points total after four matches is 10 points (in 2000/01 and 2011/12).
Alejandro Gómez has scored in each of his last three league games for Atalanta.
