Udinese vs Spezia
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 30 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Dacia Arena.
The Little Eagles got promoted from the Serie B to the top flight at the end of the last season. Interestingly, this is the very first time that the club is taking part in the Serie A. Suffice it to say that they are easily the least experienced team in the whole of the competition.
Expectedly they lost their opening game, and that too by a huge margin. Going forward, it’s a given that most other teams in the contest will be considering them as an opportunity to secure three easy points.
And the Friulians will be one of the main teams to target the minnows. The reason being, Luca Gotti’s men had narrowly managed to escape relegation in 2019-20, and to avoid such a tense end to their campaign this time around, they need every point they can afford to get.
Still, they are well-versed with the challenges of the Serie A, and they also regularly take on some of the best teams in Italy as well as Europe. A match-up against Vincenzo Italiano’s men should not be that big of a problem for them.
Expect Udinese to secure a win this Wednesday.
Udinese vs Spezia: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Only once have these two teams locked horns with each other this past decade. Then, the Little Eagles recorded a 2-3 win on the road. The game was in the 2016 Coppa Italia.
Udinese vs Spezia: Prediction
Italiano’s men were defeated at home 1-4 in their last match-day by Sassuolo. Meanwhile, the Friulians lost 1-0 on the road against Verona.
As things stand, Gotti’s men have the edge. Inexperience aside, their counterparts are also going through a tough stretch of games. They were winless in six of their former ten overall match-ups, and on the road, they have recorded a total of just eight wins in the past 15-month period.
On the other hand, the Friulians had won three of their preceding five official games, and had kept clean sheets in two of their preceding four such games.
Going on, Gotti’s men also do have the confidence of performing well against some of the best teams in the Serie A, towards the end of the last season – and that too under pressure. In fact, they had defeated the likes of Juventus, Roma etc, and had secured a draw against Lazio.
Likely, expect Udinese to deliver a great game against Spezia this Wednesday.
