Udinese vs Napoli: Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips.
This betting preview contains recent form, predicted lineups, injury news, match predictions and betting tips for Udinese vs Napoli, November 19th.
Fixture: Udinese vs Napoli
Tournament: Serie A
Venue: Stadio Friuli
Date: Saturday 19th November 2016
The bookies are heavily backing an away win for this one, with Napoli at 5/6 to take three points and apply some pressure on the European places.
Udinese have only won two games at home this season against Pescara and Empoli and seem to struggle against more difficult opposition. They seem to guarantee goals as well having only failed to score once at the Stadio Friuli, bagging ten goals in six games.
It’s been a similar story for Napoli away from home. Like Udinese, they have picked up eight points from 18 on the road and averaged 1.3 goals scored to one conceded.
Napoli hold the edge in the two sides’ head-to-head records, although Udinese have won the last two games they’ve hosted.
The two sides seem fairly evenly matched in terms of previous form and with both sides relatively inconsistent the final outcome could be difficult to call. We’re therefore going to look at the goals market for value.
Udinese’s last five home games have had over 2.5 goals, with four of six of Napoli’s away games featuring three goals or more. It therefore seems a safe bet there will be over 2.5 goals (4/5).
For those who want a riskier bet, Jose Callejon has scored in his last two Serie A away days. If the bookies are right and Napoli get the win the Spaniard is likely to score and you can get 5/1 on Callejon grabbing the first goal if they do.
