Verona vs Udinese
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday, 13 May 2018
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK/ 15:00 UK
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
Udinese took on Inter last weekend and it was an utter disaster. It seemed like a lifetime ago that the Zebrette traveled to the Nerazzurri home ground and managed to shock Inter by ending their unbeaten streak.
That was when they were under the tutelage of Massimo Oddo, and they suddenly went on a kick, leading fans to think that maybe they could make a push for a Europa League spot. Their joy was short-lived. Now they are 15 games sans a win, and went on a horrible losing streak that saw them plummeting down the table. They sit in 17th spot, which could have them in the relegation zone by the time this round ends.
Verona were relegated last round as a result of their 4-1 defeat to AC Milan, which was hardly a surprise. They will be desperate to at least finish out decently in front of their home fans, but Udinese will need to do everything they can to avoid being dragged into the drop zone.
They recently travelled to Benevento and ended up playing to a 3-3 draw, which was a very frustrating result for the Zebrette. They were expected to win, much to their dismay and they will be desperate for a win here. Will they get the result they need?
