Udinese vs Fiorentina
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 31 August 2022
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Dacia Arena.
Fiorentina had secured a 7th place finish the last season in the Italian top flight and as a result they had qualified for the Europa Conference League. Meanwhile Udinese have managed to deliver a single victory in the league so far this season.
They had the misfortune to start their campaign against reigning champions AC Milan, and right away they lost their first league match-up – and that too by conceding four goals.
They have now grown desperate to deliver at least one good performance. They will be eager to make the most of this upcoming opportunity, since they are in front of their home crowd. They also have the confidence of having performed well against this opponent in the most recent h2h clash.
Meanwhile Fiorentina have remained unbeaten in the competition so far and it also needs to be mentioned that they have been one of the best teams in the Italian top flight for the past several years.
However, at the same time they have also been going on a poor run away from home for quite some time now. In the process, they have also been letting in goals in huge numbers.
Judging these observations, as well as past h2h clashes, expect a high-scoring affair this Wednesday between the two teams.
