Napoli visits Udinese at the Dacia Arena in what could be Carlo Ancelotti’s last game at the club
Napoli visits Udinese at the Dacia Arena in what could be Carlo Ancelotti’s last game at the club. This is a match from the 15th round of the Serie A. Let’s preview it in our football forecast for today.
Napoli are in crisis right now and most likely it would lead to the departure of the head coach Carlo Ancelotti. The Azzurri without a win in 8 consecutive games in all competitions, which is simply unacceptable for a team with such quality. According to many sources, Ancelotti will leave the club after the game in Udine. So, can he say goodbye with a win?
Because of this negative run, Napoli are now 7th in the league, being 8 points behind the 4th Cagliari and the Champions League zone. You can see why the club’s board is eager to make a change – things are just not getting better for the team.
In the previous round Napoli suffered their 4th loss in the league. The Azzurri played at home against Bologna and suffered a 1-2 defeat. The Spanish veteran Fernando Llorente opened the score for Napoli, but after the break Bologna scored twice and won the game.
But what about Udinese? The Bianconeri are 16th in the league with 14 points won so far. Their record in the Serie A goes like this: 4 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses. This is not their best season, but at least they are not in the relegation zone.
In the previous round Udinese had a trip to Rome where they had to face Lazio. Needless to say, Lazio dominated the game and easily won with 3-0. It was not a game which Udinese’s fans would like to remember.
That’s our quick preview for the Serie A fixture between Udinese and Napoli on Saturday. In our football forecast we wish you good luck with this one.
