Venue: Stadio Friuli (Udine)
With Okaka and Lasagna projected to start up-front for the first time this season, and with De Paul running the show from behind, Udinese might generate some excitement for a change. Torino away numbers are quite high – 1.67 goals scored per game, whilst allowing exactly 2 per match.

Udinese vs Torino: Prediction
Udinese are 14th in the Serie A standings with the win-draw-lose record of 2-1-4. They fell to 0-1 defeat away to Fiorentina in their latest league fixture. The Zebrette are toothless on the road with zero goals scored, but they’re doing better at Friuli with 2-0-2 record so far, and they will be hoping to add another W to their name when they take on Torino on Sunday. Everyone bar Larsen are fit to play.
Torino are heading into the game on the back of a goalless draw vs Napoli in the previous round. With three wins, one draw and three losses, they are sitting at 9th position in the league. Unlike Udine, the Granata is quite entertaining team with an average on 2.86 goals in their games. They have 1-0-2 record on the road. Walter Mazzari is back on the bench and there are no injuries or suspension to report.
With less than 1.3 goals on average in their games, the Zebrette are the most boring team in the league. At home, they’re scoring 0.75 goals per bout, whilst conceding 1. With Okaka and Lasagna projected to start up-front for the first time this season, and with De Paul running the show from behind, they might generate some excitement for a change.
The Granata away numbers are quite high – 1.67 goals scored per game, whilst allowing exactly 2 per match. They played out two thrillers on the road (Atalanta 3-2, Parma 2-3) and lost narrowly to Sampdoria (0-1).
Udinese tend to do well as an underdog at home, but I won’t pick them to win, nor Torino. Instead, I’ll follow my hunch and bet on a Draw and both teams to score. I can see them scoring one each on at Friuli.
