Napoli have won five straight games in all competitions. Well, sorta. There's that little matter of the last time the partenopei faced Udinese, in which the Coppa Italia tie came down to penalties. Obviously Napoli advanced, but Udinese sure made it hard on them.
And damned if the zebrette aren't ready to make it hard on anyone. Sure, they're 11th, but they've gone unbeaten in four, and their last draw was against Juventus. Yay?
Apparently, though, Rafa Benítez isn't all that worried about Udinese. Kalidou Koulibaly misses out, and Miguel Britos is in. Walter Gargano and Gokhan Inler are the midfield paring. Dries Mertens returns and José Callejón sits.
But hey, at least Antonio Di Natale won't play!
Napoli: Rafael; Maggio, Albiol, Britos, Ghoulam; Gargano, Inler; Gabbiadini, Hamsik, Mertens; Higuain
Udinese: Karnezis; Piris, Danilo, Heurtaux; Widmer, Allan, Hallberg, Guilherme, Pasquale; Fernandes, Thereau
