Udinese secured a valuable point at home to Napoli in Serie A to keep their slight hopes of a European finish alive.
Udinese held Napoli to a stalemate at Stadio Friuli in Serie A to throw a spanner in the works of the visitors’ title challenge.
The 0-0 draw was built on a stoic defensive effort – unsurprising really, given the attacking talents Napoli possess in their team.
Stars such as Marek Hamsik and Edinson Cavani were kept at bay throughout the contest – as too was home favourite and regular capocannoniere Antonio Di Natale.
In fact, there were only three shots on target in the entire match; one for Udinese and two for Napoli, and perhaps with better finishing one side might have been able to break the deadlock.
With Juventus winning the previous day, there was a lot of pressure on Napoli to match their three points to keep pace with the Scudetto holders.
They were unable to capitalise, and are now six points behind.
