Our match prediction:
Di Natale’s missed penalty in the dying moments of the game against Genoa left Udinese empty-handed (2-1) last weekend. I Bianconeri Friuliani dropped to the 15th place in the table, with just four points above the dotted line. Now they host rock-bottom Verona, who recorded an important triumph against Chievo in the Derby dell'Arena (3-1). The Gialloblu arrive to Udine in high spirits after this morale-boosting victory, hoping for yet another positive result. Luigi Delneri’s charges took all three points on their previous two visits at Dacia Arena, but this season they have yet to achieve a win on the road. Stefano Colantuono’s side failed to score a single goal in three straight fixtures in front of their own supporters, and, judging by the current form of their attackers, they will struggle in front of the opposition goal once again. The Yellow-Blues are also toothless on the road, so we predict a pale, goalless meeting.
