Our prediction for this Serie A match:
High-flying Udinese will be aiming to retain their spot in the top half of the Serie A standings when they take on Bologna at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Matchday 19. The Zebrette are on a four-game winning run in the Italian top flight and they have been impressive in front of goal of late. Udinese head into Saturday’s football match following a thrilling 4-0 win over Hellas Verona and seeing that they outplayed Inter at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in their last away game, we are tempted to put our money on Massimo Oddo’s troops. Bologna quickly bounced back from back-to-back defeats to the likes of Milan and Juventus, with the team beating Chievo in Verona at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the match against the Zebrette, who seem to be on top of their game at the moment.
