Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Thanks to a 2-0 win over Roma at Stadio Olimpico, Udinese escaped the danger zone in the Serie A standings. The Zebrette proved their worth in the midweek clash, and, no doubt, they are high on confidence ahead of Sunday’s relegation six-pointer against Genoa. Mandragora and Prodl remain in the recovery room, but Udinese boss Luca Gotti has no fresh injury worries ahead of the visit of Genoa.
The Rossoblu, on the other hand, failed to make life difficult for league leaders Juve on Matchday 29. Genoa’s Serie A status is in great danger, but given Udinese’s display in the triumph over Roma, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from the Dacia Arena showdown. You should bear in mind that the Zebrette are eyeing their third consecutive win over the Rossoblu in the Italian top flight. Both Radovanovic and Criscito miss the Udinese game with injury.
