Napoli hosts Udinese at the Stadio San Paolo in a match from the 34th week of the Serie A. Are you ready to take a look at it in our verified soccer predictions for the weekend?
Despite of some trouble in the Serie A as they are currently 6th in the standings, Napoli could be satisfied with their season so far. The Azzurri already won the Coppa Italia while they also have a chance to eliminate Barcelona and progress in the Champions League.
The manager Gennaro Gattuso had a rocky start with the team, but soon after this he found the right approach. The club’s performance right now gives the fans some bigger hope for the next season.
In the previous round Napoli made a second consecutive draw in the league. Gattuso’s boys visited Bologna at the Renato Dall’Ara, but only won a point with a 1-1 draw. The centre back Kostas Manolas opened the score early for Napoli, but Musa Barrow scored a late equaliser for the Rossoblu.
Udinese are still not completely sure about their survival and place in the Serie A for the next season. At this moment the Bianconeri are 16th in the standings with 36 points, but their advantage over the 18th Lecce is just 7 points. You can see why Udinese are currently pretty nervous about their future in the division.
In their last game Udinese made their 9th draw for the season. They hosted Lazio at the Dacia Arena and won a point after a 0-0 scoreline. Still we can say that for Udinese it was a positive result as Lazio are one of the strongest teams in Italy at the moment.
That’s our verified soccer predictions this weekend for the Serie A fixture between Napoli and Udinese. We expect to see some fireworks from the hosts in this one, will they get back to winning?
