SSC Napoli to secure the title

SSC Napoli to secure the title

SSC Napoli is aiming to win the Serie A title with a win against Udinese Calcio, who is looking to take a leap in the league table. Napoli actually had their chances of clinching the title on their last match. However, it is unfortunate that Napoli ended that match in a 1-1 draw against Salernitana. Udinese on the other hand is looking to take a huge jump in the league table with a win here. Additionally, Udinese are also hoping to finally record a win against Napoli at home, as they last tasted home victory against Napoli in 2016. This meeting will be on May 5, 2023, at 2:45 AM (GMT+8), as Udinese play as hosts.

From the last 35 meetings these two teams played, it was the visitors who recorded more wins, which is not surprising. The visitors have 19 wins from those matches, while the hosts only recorded six victories. Moreover, the visitors are also having a good momentum here, as they have won 12 of their last 13 against the visitors. The hosts on the other hand lost five of their last six matches against the visitors at home. Despite playing at home here, the hosts found themselves at the disadvantage because of this record. However, they are looking to end this record through this match.

Napoli are currently sitting at the top of the Serie A standings with 79 points, and are now on the verge of clinching the title. They are a win away from clinching the title of Serie A, which is their aim for this match. They had their chances on their last match, but they were held in a disappointing 1-1 draw against Salernitana. With that, they are looking to take it up a notch in this game. This is not impossible though as they have an exceptional squad in their lineup. Napoli had their ups and downs, but they were able to bounce back from their downs which is why they are here now. Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is expected to step-up for Napoli, as he is looking to make an impact in this important match.

Giovanni Simeone, and Matteo Politano are both returning in this important match. However, Mario Rui is still sidelined in this match.

Udinese on the other hand is at the 13th of the league table, but a win in this match could bring them at the 11th. However, they do not have a good momentum coming into this game as they are from a 1-0 defeat against Lecce. This result though is not surprising, considering how inconsistent they are this season. Considering that they are playing at home in this match, they may find themselves at the disadvantage. They have yet to win a home match against Napoli since 2016. With that, they now hope to break this record by winning here, as they have the homecourt advantage. However, they can only achieve that aim by playing all-out in this game.

Isaac Success, and Beto are both unavailable in this match due to their injuries. Gerard Deulofeu, and Enzo Ebosse on the other hand are both out of the season already.
