Udinese vs Perugia
Date: 30th November 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Dacia Arena (Udine).
Udinese will be hoping to bounce back from losing two on the trot at home in Serie A this Thursday when they are to host a Serie B outfit Perugia in the fourth round of Coppa Italia.
A disappointing 0-1 loss at home to Cagliari sacked Luigi Del Neri as the former Milan’s left-back Massimo Oddo took charge.
Oddo had a super tough on his debut which saw Udinese tackle the Serie A leaders Napoli.
Whilst the new manager did not feel any kind of pressure against Partinopei, the victory over a second-tier side is a must.
The Griffins have been struggling a lot with the consistency ever since the start of the season in the second flight, but they will come into this Coppa Italia clash packed with confidence.
Roberto Breda’s side picked up four points from last two league fixtures with Carpi (a demolishing 5-0 win at home) and Ternana (1-1 draw).
Perugia have already made a major upset by shocking the new Serie A members Benevento 0-4 on the road in the previous round of Coppa Italia.
Udinese vs Perugia: Head to head
It’s been long 13 years since the two likes have last locked horns in an official match and back then they were battling it out in the top flight of the Italian football.
Interestingly, five of their last six meetings ended without a winner which gives a strong value to the 4.20 odds offered for the draw at the end of this one.
Udinese vs Perugia: Prediction
With Udinese’s current form, we can hardly see the value in backing the home win at 1.44 odds.
Instead, we’ll back goals at both ends at super attractive 1.95 odds, while the draw is also a must-take pick at the sky-high 4.20.
