Udinese and Napoli are both yet to lose a game in Serie A this season. Both of their unbeaten starts will be put to the test this weekend, as they meet on Sunday.
Serie A Preview
Napoli could be one of the sides that are eyeing a title challenge this season, as they have started the new campaign in excellent form. They are one of three sides that have won all games in the league so far, having won on all three outings. Napoli have conceded just twice, which is the second-best defensive record in Serie A, while they have found the back of the net on six occasions. Napoli’s last league win came in Naples last weekend, as they beat Juventus 2-1. That was followed up with a battling performance against Leicester City in their Europa League opener, as they fought back from 2-0 down to take a point. Victor Osimhen scored twice in the final 20 minutes to rescue an unlikely points for Napoli in that fixture at the King Power Stadium.
Udinese will also be appeased with their start to the new Serie A season, as they are also unbeaten in their opening three league games. After being held on the opening day of the season, they have won both of their last two fixtures in the league. Their most recent victory in the league came last weekend, as they scored a late winner to snatch a 1-0 victory against Spezia on the road. Lazar Samardzic scored the crucial winner in that game with just a minute remaining of the 90. Similar tactics will be used once again this weekend, as Udinese are likely to allow Napoli to have the lionshare of the possession and then try and hit on the counter-attack.
Udinese vs Napoli Head to Head
Napoli have a fantastic record in this fixture, as they have won nine of the previous ten games that they have played against Udinese in the league. Their most recent success was a 5-1 win in Naples in May. Udinese’s last win against Napoli came back in April 2016 in the league.
Udinese vs Napoli Prediction
Udinese are likely to lose their unbeaten record this weekend, as Napoli’s strong form shows no signs of stopping. Their excellent record against Udinese only furthers their claims of victory, and it could result in a comfortable 2-0 success on the road.
