Our football match prediction:
Udinese have been in a fine form of late. Following back-to-back wins over the likes of Pescara and Palermo the Zebrette shared the spoils with Torino at the weekend, but they were on the verge of beating Sinisa Mihajlovic’s troops in Turin. Anyhow, Luigi Delneri’s men extended their unbeaten run in the national championship to four games and their Serie A status is no longer in danger. Udinese aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration and seeing that their next rivals Genoa experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-0 loss to Atalanta, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s football game at Dacia Arena. The Rossoblu have been struggling in the Italian top flight in recent weeks and they are likely to return home empty-handed. You should bear in mind, though, that Udinese are after their first win over Genoa since 2013.
