Our football match prediction:
Saturday’s football match at Stadio Artemio Franchi sees Fiorentina face Udinese on day 24 of the 2016/2017 Serie A campaign. Fiorentina are eyeing a place in European competitions and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Udinese. The Viola are likely to stick to their attacking style of play and the fact that they scored 2+ goals in each of their last five home fixtures in the league is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Saturday’s game. The Zebrette, on the other hand, are one of those unpredictable teams. Thanks to a 2-1 win over Milan the team put an end to their three-game losing run in the Italian top flight and they played out a goalless draw with Chievo at the weekend. Luigi Delneri’s troops are tough to beat at home, but they failed to score in previous three away games in the Serie A and we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed.
