Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Montella earned a share of spoils upon his return to Fiorentina, since Ricardo Alvarez secured a point for the Samp with his first goal of the season. But that was not enough for the Genoa-based team to maintain their position in the overall standings, since Udinese bounced back to winning ways after they defeated Napoli in the previous round. This was the first win for Luigi De Canio since he came back to Dacia Arena. Former Catania tactician managed to pick up the pieces after Colantuono left. The Bianconeri Friuliani seemed to be revived and keen on getting away from the danger zone as quickly as possible. However, the team from Udine will have a difficult task in defeating il Doria, bearing in mind they failed to do so in their last two visits to Genoa. A share of spoils seems as the most probable result, but we do not expect much goals.
