Udinese vs SPAL
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 18th May 2019
Kick-off at 14.00 UK/ 15.00 CET
Venue: Dacia Arena (Udine).
Udinese is still battling relegation, and has a buffer of just two points, with two match-days remaining. Considering Empoli has won the last two matches and looks as if they are determined not to get the boot, Udinese will have to deliver something in the next two fixtures to avoid disaster.
