Our prediction for this Serie A match:
After playing out a goalless draw with Fiorentina, Bologna will be looking to return to winning ways in the Serie A when they take on Udinese on Matchday 16. The Rossoblu are eyeing their first league win since November 29, 2020, and, no doubt, they will fight tooth and nail against Udinese. The likes of Mbaye, Santander, and Skorupski remain in the recovery room for the hosts.
The Zebrette, on the other hand, suffered a heavy 4-1 loss to Juventus in their last league match, with the team dropping to 13th position in the standings. Udinese suffered a dip in form, and given their shaky defence, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the home team. Bacao returns from suspension, but all Jajalo, Okaka, Ouwejan, Prodl, and Nuytinck should miss the Bologna game with injuries.
