Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Udinese and Salernitana face each other at Dacia Arena in a postponed Serie A fixture. Udinese rolled over Empoli 4-1 at the weekend, with the team extending their winning run to three games. The Zebrette are high on spirits ahead of Wednesday’s clash, but the rock-bottom visitors should not be written off just yet. All Beto, Pereyra, and Santurro should miss out with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Salernitana, on the other hand, recorded a 2-1 win over Sampdoria in Genoa, which is unlikely to help them secure the elite division survival. The rock-bottom side need to adopt yet another attack-minded approach, meaning that Udinese should have a number of opportunities to seal the victory on the break. The likes of Sepe, Ruggeri, Mousset, Coulibaly, and Obi are sidelined with injuries, when it comes to the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Nicolas Andrade):
Nicolas Andrade is a Brazilian goalkeeper who plays for Hellas Verona in Serie A. Nicolas was born in Colorado de Oeste on April 12, 1988 and he is a product of Atletico Mineiro youth school. The 190-cm-tall shot-stopper played for the likes of Villa Nova, Tombense and Anapolina in Brazil before joining Italian side Hellas Verona in 2010.
In 2014 he was sent on loan to Virtus Lanciano and he made 35 appearances in the league for the club. At the end of the 2014/2015 season the Brazilian goalkeeper signed a loan deal with Trapani, but he eventually returned to the “City of Love”. Nicolas managed to keep no less than 17 clean sheets in 42 appearances for Hellas Verona in the 2016/2017 Serie B campaign.
He has established himself as a first-choice goalkeeper at Verona, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the Brazil national football team. His contract with the Mastini should expire on June 30, 2019.
