Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Unbelievable Atalanta continue to impress in the Serie A. The Orobici came from two goals behind to beat Lazio 3-2 in Bergamo, with the team cementing their spot in top four. Atalanta are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Udinese, and they should take advantage of the fact that the game will be played behind closed doors. Head coach Gian Piero Gasperini welcomes Mario Pasalic back to the squad as the Croatia international served his ban against Lazio.
The Zebrette, on the other hand, restarted the season with a 1-0 loss at Torino. Udinese aim to escape the danger zone in the Serie A standings, but away win should be considered as Atalanta are high on confidence following the come-from-behind win over Simone Inzaghi’s troops. Experienced defender Sebastian Prodl is sidelined with injury for the hosts.
