Our football match prediction:
Crotone desperately needed a victory against Pescara at the weekend and they managed to pick up all three points from Sunday’s football match. The Rossoblu have been in a fine form of late, but they will have to be at their sharpest in the remainder of the season if they are to avoid relegation to Serie B. The game against Udinese is of huge importance for the hosts and we predict that they will fight tooth in Sunday’s clash. This has to go down as a must-win match for the home team and we are tempted to put our money on the relegation strugglers. Udinese played out a 1-1 draw with high-flying Atalanta in front of home fans at the weekend, but their performances on the road leave a lot to be desired and the visitors are likely to return home empty-handed from the trip to Calabria.
