Our football match prediction:
Dacia Arena will host Sunday’s football game between Udinese and Palermo. After holding league leaders Juventus to a 1-1 draw, the Zebrette outplayed Pescara on the road at the weekend and that certainly gave them a confidence boost. Udinese escaped the relegation zone, but they are likely to go for a win in the clash against Palermo. You should bear in mind that the Zebrette are after their sixth home win of the season. The Rosanero failed to make life difficult for Roma in their last league fixture and their Serie A status remains in great danger. Udinese have been in a much better form of late than their next rivals and that is the main reason why home win should be considered. When the two teams met at Stadio Renzo Barbera in the reverse fixture the Zebrette emerged triumphant and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
