Napoli – Udinese : Preview & Prediction
Napoli battle hard with AC Milan and to a lesser extent with Sassuolo for a European place at the end of the season. Tied on points with the Rossoneri, the Neapolitans, who are currently 6th, hold the last European ticket but the pressure is great on the shoulders of Gattuso’s proteges. The former Maradona club has been unbeaten for 4 days and has just taken 8 points out of 12 in play ahead of AS Rome (2-1), Genoa (2-1), against AC Milan (2-2) and on the ground of Bologna (1-1) this Wednesday. The end of the calendar is complicated with the reception of Sassuolo, a trip to the lawn of Inter Milan and the arrival of Lazio Rome on the last day … Suffice to say that Naples must take the 3 points in front of the Udine . The Frioul club has a comfortable mattress 7 points ahead of Lecce, 18th and first relegation. At 5 days from the end of the season, the current 16th is on the right track to save himself and has 2 jokers. Lasagna’s partners (10 goals) should not rest on their laurel because they remain on 1 poor performance at the Dacia Arena against Sampdora Genoa (1-3) and 1 good draw in front of Lazio Rome (0-0 ) on the last day. Not successful in San Paolo for a few seasons, Udinese does not expect a miracle !.
Naples, 6th, is fighting for a European place.
Udinese, 16th, are fighting to avoid relegation.
Advantage to Napoli which has 7 wins and 1 draw in their last 8 duels.
Napoli have lost only once in their last 10 matches at San Paolo.
Udinese have lost 10 times in their last 17 away games, in all competitions.
Napoli love to play Udinese at home because Napoli have still pocketed the 3 points of victory since February 2015. History should repeat itself …
