Napoli vs Udinese Match Preview
Napoli reached the Europa League quarter-finals this week more comfortably than the second-leg scoreline suggests, and their 3-1 defeat should not affect confidence for Udinese’s visit.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side had done the hard work at home in that tie against Red Bull Salzburg, winning 3-0, and having also taken the lead in Austria they were not exactly hanging on at the end for they had the away goal and did not concede the third until the dying seconds.
Next up for Napoli in Europe will be Arsenal and that test should ensure they stay focused even though their Serie A campaign is petering out, although second place is far from guaranteed with AC Milan coming up on the rails.
This game is expected to yield a routine three points for the Partenopei because Udinese are struggling on their travels, albeit they recently registered back-to-back home wins which eased their relegation fears.
Davide Nicola’s team are having difficulty scoring goals in particular and Kevin Lasagna’s late consolation away to Juventus last time out was their first on the road in six matches.
Although Napoli are having arguably their stickiest spell of the campaign, they should still be plenty good enough to win here and boost their chances of sealing the runners-up spot that is becoming perennially theirs.
