THE TEAM NEWS

NAPOLI

  • Napoli’s bid to finish in the top six suffered a damaging blow as they drew for the second game in succession with Bologna able to nab a point from their midweek contest.
  • Konstantinos Manolas handed Napoli a dream start as his effort put them ahead on just seven minutes but they failed to kick-on and were eventually punished as Bologna levelled with 10 to play.
  • Giovanni Di Lorenzo will now be absent as he sits out because of suspension while Amin Younes’ availability remains shrouded in doubt after he sat out the clash with Bologna.

UDINESE

  • Udinese collected another valuable point in their bid to avoid the drop as they held Lazio to a goalless draw during the week which means they have lost just one of their last five.
  • In an end-to-end game, Lazio were arguably the better side but Udinese grew into the contest and enjoyed some strong spells with the point proving to be the right outcome.
  • Despite their result run of form, they know that they are still not safe and come into this clash with Napoli without the services of the suspended Stefano Okaka while Mato Jajalo and Lukas Teodorczyk are both injury doubts.

THE PREDICTION

Napoli are unbeaten in their last four and they have lost just one of their last 10 matches in Serie A but two successive draws means they begin this one outside of the top six. They host an Udinese side with just one loss to their name in their last five and they earned a valiant point at home to Lazio during the week. It is likely the visitors would settle for another point here but the hosts will be desperate to get back to winning ways and they should be too strong here.
