Udinese head coach Stefano Colantuono has suggested that Napoli are currently the best side competing in the top tier of Italian football.
The 53-year-old feels that his team must nullify the creativity of Maurizio Sarri's outfit to get anything from their game away to the Azzurri.
"The best team in the Serie A are our opponents, but we can make their lives difficult if we have the right attitude," Colantuono told reporters ahead of the tie.
"We want to do something a bit different and find a system that gives us more balance, perhaps with Bruno Fernandes playing as a second striker.
"It is necessary that we do a good job in stifling their creative players and prevent them from having too much time."
Udinese currently lie in 15th spot in the league table, while Napoli reside in fourth.
