This is a clash that could be defined as derby because the winners go to the top of the table. In case Udinese to win, they will share the first place with Inter and Milan - all three teams will have 10 points. In case Napoli to win, they will occupy the first place alone. The Vesuvians could maintain their perfect record and I think they are able to do that. But it won't be easy, Udinese are in very good form, they have two wins and one draw after the first three rounds in Serie A. In the opening match they played a 2:2 draw with Juventus, while in the second round won 3:0 against Venezia. In the third round Udinese secured an 1:0 win away to Spezia, thanks to a superb 89th-minute winner from substitute Lazar Samardzic. For this match coach Luca Gotti has most of the players available, but the Macedonian striker Ilija Nestorovski remain long-term injury victim.

As I already wrote above, Napoli will try to maintain their perfect record. So far they have three victories and could sit at the top of the table alone in case they win at Friuli. Coach Luciano Spalletti is doing an excellent job. His experience could be pivotal as he already managed to win four opening matches in Serie A, with Inter Milan in the 2017/18 season. So far Napoli managed to beat Venezia, Genoa and Juventus last week. It was a hard match, juventus took the lead first but Napoli came from behind thanks to Matteo Politano and Kalidou Koulibaly. Spalletti has some selection dilemmas, particularly because Napoli visited Leicester City in Europe League on Thursday. To be worse, Diego Demme, Stanislav Lobotka and Alex Meret are unavailable through injuries. In addition, Dries Merten and Faouzi Ghoulam are rated as doubtful. Marco Rui missed the Leicester game due to knock, but he could feature here.

I expect an interesting match, however the quality is on Napoli side. They have an excellent H2H record - 9 victories and just one draw on the last 10 matches with Udinese in Serie A. I expect the series to continue.

WIN Score: 0:4 Profit: +0.88
