Torino vs Udinese
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 10 February 2019
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino (Turin).
Udinese ended their two-win streak with a 1-1 draw to in-form Fiorentina last weekend at Dacia Arena. It was a decent display which saw a rise in form after a pair of unpleasant losses against the likes of Parma and Sampdoria.
Can Zebrette back up the mentioned draw and stay unbeaten on Sunday afternoon when they travel to Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino?
The visitors might struggle to create in the final third on the occasion since Il Toro kept back-to-back clean sheets in last two rounds against Inter Milan and SPAL.
The four-point return from these two ties saw Walter Mazzarri’s men climb up 10th in the league ladder. They still have time to catch up with teams above them and get themselves involved in a potential chase for the European football next term.
Torino vs Udinese: Head-to-head
Torino have an opportunity to move lock with Udinese on number of wins in their H2H record.
The visitors lead the H2H tie by a single victory ahead of the landmark 30th encounter with Il Toro.
Teams shared spoils in a 1-1 draw when they met each other in the first half of the season at Dacia Arena.
Both teams scored a goal in five of last six head to head outings.
Torino vs Udinese: Prediction
It’s fair to say Torino were quite tough to break down of late, especially in their own backyard. The hosts did not concede a goal in back-to-back home wins over Empoli (3-0) and Inter Milan (1-0). Udinese struggled for goals in away fixtures so far in the season.
Zebrette bagged only 8 goals in 10 matches on the road in this term of Serie A (1 win, 4 draws and 5 defeats). We thus have to recognize the value in backing Il Toro to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.20 here.
