Napoli travel to face Udinese in Serie A on Sunday with both teams looking to return to winning ways (2pm kick-off UK time).
Udinese are not in good form going into this weekend’s game, having lost two and drawn three of their last five matches, and currently sit 13th in the table after 15 games, just four points clear of the bottom three. They did well to secure a 2-2 draw at Bologna in midweek, thanks to an injury-time equaliser, but they need to do more if they want to survive relegation from Serie A this season.
At home, Udinese have suffered six defeats in their last 10 games across all competition and have failed to score in five of those. Furthermore, Udinese are winless in their last four home games against Napoli in Serie A, losing three.
Napoli have also endured a terrible run of form lately, winning just one of their last five league games. They kicked off 2021 with a 4-1 away victory at Cagliari, but then succumbed to a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of lowly Spezia in midweek. This leaves Napoli sixth in Serie A, already nine points behind current leaders AC Milan.
Away from home, Napoli were on a two-game losing streak in the league prior to their 4-1 victory at Cagliari but, overall, have won seven of their last 10 games on the road across all competitions.
Can Udinese put an end to their five-game winless streak in the Serie A? Or will Napoli extend their unbeaten streak on the road at Udinese to five games?
Udinese XI: Musso; Becao, Bonifazi, Samir; Stryger Larsen, De Paul, Arslan, Mandragora, Molina; Pereyra; Lasagna.
Napoli XI: Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Manolas, Hysaj; Ruiz, Bakayoko; Petagna, Zielinski, Insigne; Lozano.
