Hellas Verona vs Udinese
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 27 September 2020
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Marc Antonio Bentegodi, Verona.
Hellas Verona ended the previous Serie A season way above initial expectations. Squad from Marc Antonio Bentegodi stadium was 9th, miles away from the relegation zone.
The new campaign also started in the best way possible for them – even though the match against Roma AS ended without goals, visitors from the capital made an administrative mistake and lost the match by default 3-0.
Verona is having another home appearance this Sunday and the opponent this time is going to be Udinese.
The Zebras are having a debut in this season, but form and results from test games are not looking promising.

Udinese are undefeated in the last seven h2h’s against Hellas Verona.
Hellas Verona vs Udinese Prediction
Udinese ended the previous season four points and four positions behind Hellas Verona, but it would be fair to say the quality is more or less the same when it comes to these two teams. Team from Udine struggled really hard when it comes to efficiency, bagging only 37 goals in 38 matches.
Good news is that best goalscorer from previous campaign Kevin Lasagna didn’t go anywhere. Coach Luca Gotti has a lot of options upfront with Forestieri, Okaka, Nestorovski and Teodorczyk.
Hellas Verona played only two pre-season matches and there were many ups and downs present. Loss to lower division team Cremonese was underwhelming, while 4-3 win against Slovenian squad Gorica slightly improved the mood.
We are going to honor the tradition for this one and back Under 2.5 FT as a banker bet. Draw definitely seems like the most realistic outcome for us.
