Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Friuli will host Saturday’s football game between Udinese and Monza. The Zebrette are desperate to make amends for back-to-back defeats to AC Milan and Atalanta, but keep in mind that the game will be played behind closed doors after the Rossoneri goalkeeper Mike Maignan was racially abused by Udinese fans. The likes of Brenner, Semedo, Deulofeu, Ebosse, Bijol, and Zemura are out of contention with injuries for the home team.
The Biancorossi, on the other hand, recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Sassuolo at the weekend, with Andrea Colpani scoring the only goal of the match. As the stands will be empty in Saturday’s encounter, we are tempted to put our money on the away team. The good news for the visiting side is that midfielder Jose Machin is back from international duty, but forward Gianluca Caprari continues to miss out with a long-term injury.
