Caretaker manager Luca Gotti was pleased to finally see Udinese "play as a team" this week and hopes they can take that approach against Napoli.
It kicks off on Saturday at 17.00 GMT, click here for a match preview.
Napoli travel to the Dacia Arena with only one win in their last seven games, but Gotti is taking nothing for granted.
“We must not think of Napoli, but of our performance, of ourselves. I think it is quite important for this team to create an identity," said Gotti in his press conference.
Udinese recorded a 4-0 victory over Bologna in the fourth round of the Coppa Italia midweek and Gotti saw crucial developments.
“It was nice to see Udinese play as a team. There was the correct attitude, even at 0-0, 1-0, 2-0, 3-0… there was solidity and shared commitment.”
Napoli will be without Allan and Arkadiusz Milik, but Gotti believes that the Partenopei have got strength in numbers.
“We know the strength of Napoli, beyond the two players [Allan and Milik] who won’t be there.”
