Serie A Preview
Napoli have started the new Serie A season in excellent form, and they will be looking to stretch their lead at the top of the standings in their final fixture before the World Cup break. The Italian giants currently sit eight points clear at the top of the standings, and are one of the only teams in Europe still boasting an unbeaten record.
Napoli has won a staggering 12 of their opening 14 fixtures this season, with their only two non wins ending in draws. The Italian side has won their previous five fixtures in Serie A with their latest victory coming at home against Empoli. Both goals in that win were scored in the final 20 minutes, with Hirving Lozano opening the scoring and Piotr Zielinksi adding a second with just two minutes remaining.
It hasn’t been the worst start to the season for Udinese, as they comfortably sit in the top half of the standings at this stage of the campaign. They are currently eighth, and they could move into the top four should they claim victory on Saturday and results go their way.
However, the Italian side is without a win in their previous five fixtures. During that run, they have been held to four draws. Their latest draw came in midweek, as Sandi Lovric scored for Udinese in a 1-1 draw against Spezia away from home.
