Udinese – Napoli
Udinese and Napoli face each other at the Stadio San Paolo in a game from the 15th round of the Italian Serie A. This could be Carlo Ancelotti’s last game at Napoli’s helm. It’s expected that he will leave the club after Saturday.
For Napoli this season looks really difficult. There are many problems inside the club, which is the main reason why right now Napoli are 7th in the standings on 17 points behind the leader Inter Milan. The Azzurri are without a win in their last six games in the Calcio, which is the main reason why the club is going to part ways with Ancelotti. According to the rumours, AC Milan legend Gennaro Gattuso will replace him as manager.
In their last game in the league Napoli hosted Bologna and in the most dissapointing way suffered a 1-2 defeat. Fernando Llorente opened the score for the hosts, but the Rossoblu turned it around with goals from Andreas Olsen and Nicola Sansone. It was just another sad day for Napoli and Ancelotti.
Meanwhile Udinese are also not having the best season. The Bianconeri are 16th in the Serie A with 14 points, just 4 points ahead of the 18th Genoa and the dangerous zone. Udinese have won only 4 of their 14 games so far.
In their last match the Bianconeri visited Lazio in the Eternal City and got beaten with 0-3. Luca Gotti’s team was totally outperformed, so it was not a surprise that the game ended in such a way. There’s no doubt that Lazio are much better at the moment.
Will this be Carlo Ancelotti’s last game at Napoli? Most likely – yes. Probably his players will try to tell him goodbye with a positive result against Udinese. This would be a nice way to part ways with their head coach.
