The visitors are the favourites according to the Udinese vs Napoli odds with an implied probability of 50.0% that they claim maximum points in this game.

Udinese come into this one after a 1-1 draw at Bologna, a decent result in normal circumstances but they’d have been gutted to let a 1-0 lead slip against ten men following Martin Payero’s goal.

Napoli drew 2-2 at home to Roma in their last game with Mathias Olivera and Victor Osimhen on target.

Player to watch – Victor Osimhen

If Udinese are going to get a much needed result in their battle for survival, they’ll need to do a good job on Victor Osimhen. The Nigerian striker has scored 14 goals in 22 appearances in Serie A this season.

Osimhen scoring late

Of his 14 Serie A strikes, just one of Victor Osimhen’s goals has come in the opening 30 minutes. The Napoli frontman is clearly taking some time to find his groove, but he’s scored five between the 31st minute and Half Time while 57% of his goals have come after the interval.
