Competition: Serie A
Market: Victor Osimhen to score anytime
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on their recent purple patch, a free-scoring Napoli will welcome Udinese to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, certainly laying down another marker over the weekend, there is no doubt that the mood in Napoli’s camp is at a real high. Enjoying a stellar purple patch over the past month, The Blues were last seen landing a 4-1 romp against Spezia on the road and they’re sat in pole position to clinch a Champions League return. Marching on a six-match unbeaten run, a run highlighted by a stunning 5-2 victory against Lazio last month, Napoli will be calling on the red-hot Victor Osimhen to spearhead their charge on Tuesday night. Gaining a string of plaudits from across Italy and enjoying his best run since moving to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, the 22-year-old once again bagged a brace against Spezia over the weekend. With seven goals in his last eight Serie A contests, Osimhen should be confident of extending on that run in midweek.
As for the visitors, while Udinese might still find themselves sat within striking distance of breaking back into the top-half of the Serie A table, they are still in the midst of an extended blip. Throwing away the lead late on over the weekend and eventually having to settle for a 1-1 draw against Bologna on home soil, I Bianconeri have failed to build off of that action-packed victory against relegation scrappers Benevento last month. Managing to muster themselves just a pair of wins from their last nine Serie A matchups, Luca Gotti’s side should also be concerned by their worrying record against Tuesday’s hosts. Including a 2-1 defeat when they faced off against Napoli back in January, Udinese have remarkably failed to win any of their last 10 straight meetings against The Blues, a run that goes all the way back to 2016.
Bet: Victor Osimhen 4/6 to score anytime against Udinese in Tuesday’s Serie A contest @ 888sport
