Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sunday’s football game at Dacia Arena pits together Udinese and Genoa, the two teams who sit in the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 8. The Zebrette are eyeing their second win of the season, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Udinese did well to hold Sassuolo to a draw before the international break, and they are surely capable of beating Genoa at home ground. Jajalo, Mandragora, and Walace are out of contention through injury, while Pereyra is a major doubt.
The Rossoblu, on the other hand, made a slow start to the season, with the team collecting only five points from possible 21. Genoa are not regarded as good travellers, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. Cassata and Pjaca are sidelined with injury, while Zapata has been tested positive for coronavirus.
