Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over the likes of Pescara and Palermo, Udinese take on Torino at their Dacia Arena on Matchday 11. The Zebrette regained a much-needed confidence, but they want to keep on climbing the Serie A standings. Summer signing Seko Fofana proved his worth in the 3-1 win at Palermo, with the French midfielder scoring a brace in the Stadio Renzo Barbera clash and he will certainly pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. Cyril Thereau has been scoring goals for fun in recent weeks as well and, taking everything into account, the hosts should find the net in Monday’s football match against Torino. Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men head into the game following a 2-1 loss to Inter, but considering that they scored 2+ goals in four of their last five matches, we predict that fans will see goals galore at Dacia Arena.
