Fiorentina vs Udinese: Prediction
Fiorentina moved to 10th place after back-to-back wins over Sampdoria (2-1) and AC Milan (3-1). They have improved significantly and 3-5-2 formation clearly works wonders for Viola. I’m positive Vincenzo Montella’s men will give their all to record third win on the trot against Udinese on Sunday since they know perfectly well how bad is life on the wrong side of streaks. Injured Rasmunssen is likely to miss this one. There are no suspensions in the team.
Udinese are sitting at 12th position with two wins, draw and three losses to their name. They have managed to defeat tricky Bologna side in the previous round thanks to Stefano Okaka’s goal in the first half. Rodrigo De Paul in back in the team after serving a three-match ban. The Argentine International is Zebrette’s main player and should improve their dreadful goalscoring record. There are no injuries or suspension to report.
Fiorentina, with win-draw-lose record of 1-1-1 at Artemio Franchi stadium, are scoring 1.83 goals per game, while conceding sligthly less, 1.67. They’ve upped their numbers considerably in last three Serie A fixutres. Ribery seems to be in-form and Chiesa has recorded four assists this season.
Udinese are the most underish Serie A team with an average of 1.33 goals on their games. The Zebrette are yet to score on the road and they’ve played out five under 1.5 games so far. We’ve seen only one over 2.5 game – against Parma at home (1:3).
Head to Head trend firmly supports the hosts. Fiorentina have won last 12 games at home vs Udinese and that amazing streak should continue. They’re playing excellent football lately and I’ll back them to score in the 1st half and win this tie.
