Napoli vs Udinese
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 17th March 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Stadio San Paolo (Naples).
Napoli seems to have entered a rut, and they need a respite from it as fast as they could.
At the same time, AC Milan has been having the time of their life in the Serie A, with recording five wins in the last five match-days, which only Juventus have been able to match.
With the season entering its final phase, Napoli needs to take advantage of this easy fixture and lock down their runners-up spot.
Why the tag of an easier fixture? At home, Napoli is taking on a lower tier team, Udinese, who has one of the weakest offenses in the entire competition. They are yet to score ten goals on the road this season. Napoli is definitely the favorites for this game.

Napoli needs to make a statement. They have a sense of complacency crept up in the middle, and the team needs to deal with it right now. Taking advantage of the situation, AC Milan has been slowly chipping away their points deficit.
