Our football match prediction:
Napoli are desperate to put an end to Juventus’ dominance in Serie A, but, as things stand now, the Partenopei are unlikely to regain the domestic trophy. The Neapolitans are nine points behind Juve in the standings and they head into Saturday’s football match against Udinese following a 1-1 draw with Lazio at their Stadio San Paolo. Maurizio Sarri’s troops face a must-win situation against Udinese and they are widely expected to go all guns blazing at the Zebrette. Udinese have found their form of late and they will be looking to extend their unbeaten run in the Serie A to five games when they face Napoli at their Dacia Arena. The visitors want this win more than the hosts and that is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Neapolitans this time out. Key attacker Arkadiusz Milik remains in the recovery room and we predict that Marek Hamsik is going to pose a big threat for the opposition back line.
