Udinese vs Napoli: Preview, kick-off time, and where to watch on TV and online

Napoli will again be hoping to seal the Serie A title as they face Udinese on the road during the midweek set of fixtures, not wanting to pass up on another opoortunity after slipping up at home to Salernitana last time out.


Napoli will have another chance to finally get over the line and seal their third scudetto on Serie A Matchday 33, taking them just about as far away from home as they could possibly be as they travel to Friuli-Venezia Giulia to take on Udinese at the Dacia Arena on Thursday.

Luciano Spalletti saw his Partenopei pass up the chance to win the Serie A title at home to Salernitana last time out. Having seen Inter beat Lazio on Matchday 32, the runaway leaders were unable to beat Salernitana, conceding a late goal after Mathias Olivera had opened the scoring and tremors registered on the Richter scale in the city. Boulaye Dia forced Napoli to put the champagne on ice again.

Napoli may even be crowned champions before stepping onto the pitch in Udine though, should Sassuolo prevent Lazio from winning on Wednesday evening.

Neither Udinese nor Napoli have any suspensions to manage, though Sandy Lovric, Destiny Udogie, Isaac Success, Kim Min-jae and Victor Osimhen are all a booking away from missing their next game.

Udinese predicted XI vs Napoli (3-5-1-1): Silvestri; Becao, Bijol, Perez; Ehizibue, Samardzic, Walace, Lovric, Udogie; Pereyra; Nesterovski.
