Napoli vs Udinese – Serie A: In another of the many matches taking place this
Wednesday in Italy, counting towards the 33rd round of the Serie A.
The local side Napoli and the visiting side Udinese face off in the city of Naples, at the San Paolo Stadium, in what will be the 3rd meeting between the two sides, after their meeting in the Serie A that ended with a 0-1 win for Napoli away from home.
And their encounter in the cup that finished with a 1-0 win for Napoli as well, that time at home.
The team managed by Maurizzio Sarri comes into this match already without many chances and ability of reaching Juventus in 1st place of the Italian Serie A, having lost another excellent opportunity to win the Italian title again.
Since they ended up losing some of their momentum in the past couple of weeks, losing the leadership to the Vecchia Signora and never even managing to have the ability to fight for the Serie A title with the dominant Italian champions.
The team is in 2nd place of the competition, with 78 points, only having 2 wins on the last 5 rounds.
The team from the city of Udine, in turn, is in 13th place of the competition, not having yet ensured they avoid relegation from the top tier of Italian football, counting with 33 points conquered on these 32 rounds and.
That way, only having a 6-points advantage to the relegation zone, coming inclusively of a very negative streak of results, which makes their objective more difficult, since they have lost all matches played in the last 2 months.
Napoli vs Udinese – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Despite Udinese’s very poor streak of results, the truth is that even Napoli itself is on a less intense period, in terms of ability, on these final weeks of the season.
Which leads me into believing that Napoli will not have such an easy task in beating Udinese here, that should be more concentrated on their defensive duties against a Napoli that is very strong technically and tactically.
That way, I predict a more balanced match and first half, and therefore, with less goals.
