Our prediction for this Serie A match:
After shocking Milan at Stadio San Siro, Udinese will look to escape the danger zone when they face Atalanta in the Serie A round 12. The Zebrette have regained a much-needed confidence, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to regain their spot in top ten. All Thomas Kristensen, Gerard Deulofeu, and Kingsley Ehizibue are sidelined with injuries, while both Brenner and Enzo Ebosse are major doubts.
The Orobici, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Inter, but beating the in-form Zebrette in Udine is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Experienced Atalanta defender Rafael Toloi misses out through suspension following his sending-off in the last league match, while both Jose Luis Palomino and El Bilal Toure remain on the sidelines with injuries.
