  • Competition: Serie A
  • Date: Monday, 6th May, 2024
  • Kickoff: 19:45 UTC +1 / 20:45 CEST
  • Venue: Bluenergy Stadium - Stadio Friuli (Udine)

In the 35th round of the Serie A, two underachieving teams, Udinese and Napoli, will face off at Bluenergy Stadium - Stadio Friuli in Udine.

In the previous decade, Udinese have constantly been between 12th and 16th place. But this year, they are facing big problems. With only four rounds left, Bianconeri are in 18th place with 29 points, two away from the safe zone. The club even tried to shift its poor momentum by appointing Favio Cannavaro as the new head coach, but in the first two games, they only won one point. However, after this tough game, Bianconeri will have a pretty easy schedule as they will face off against Lecce, Empoli, and Frosinone. We expect a battle for survival until the very last second of the season. 

Napoli are also having a terrible season, especially considering they are the reigning champs. After an incredible last season, Gli Azzurri are struggling even to secure Europe this year. Right now, they are 9th, but on a level with points with 8th-placed Fiorentina, although with a game played more. Right now, they are in poor form and will definitely not have an easy task against relegation-threatened Udine, even though Bianconeri are in terrible form. 

Udinese vs Napoli pick: Both teams to score

Udinese are in terrible form, winning only one match in the last ten games. Still, despite those very bad results, they are scoring pretty regularly and should be capable of scoring at home against Napoli, which hasn't had a clean sheet in the last 14 matches in all competitions. At the same time, we definitely do not trust Udinese's defense, which only had three clean sheets in 17 home games (18%). 

Napoli are also in poor form, but I do not think they should have problems scoring against one of the worst teams in the league. They are creating a lot of good chances - the most in the league, according to xG stats. Lately, they have constantly played games where both teams scored. In the last 13 matches, that occured 11 times - 85%. 

Also, both teams are among the best teams in the league for this type of bet. 59% of their games finished with both teams scoring.

In the first h2h game this season, Napoli won 4:1. Additionally, nine of the last ten h2h games finished with both teams scoring. Considering all the above, we believe that both teams to score is the safest option for this Serie A tie.

Udinese team news

A key central defender, Neuhen Perez, and midfielder Martin Payero received their fifth yellow cards in the previous game vs Bologna and will serve their one-game suspension against Napoli. 

Florian Thauvin, Sandi Lovirc, Enzo Ebosse, and Gerard Deulofeu, who missed the previous games with injuries, should remain sidelined. At the same time, Kingsley Ehizibue is questionable after suffering a minor injury in the last match. 

On 22nd April, the club sacked coach Gabriele Cioffi and appointed Fabio Cannavaro the day after. Under the new coach, Udinese won just one point in two matches, Bologna and AS Roma.

Napoli team news

A starting midfielder, Piotr Zielinski, missed the previous game with a calf injury and will most likely remain sidelined for this match as well. According to credible sources, the 29-year-old midfielder might miss the rest of the season due to the mentioned injury. 

Besides Zielinski, the team should only miss a backup goalkeeper, Pierluigi Collini. However, he is not an important part of the team.

According to Italian media reports, coach Francesco Calzona had to leave the latest training due to flu-like symptoms and a high fever. Still, he should be on the bench for the upcoming match regardless.
