Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Udinese will look to bounce back from a 4-2 loss to Milan when they take on Salernitana in their first home game of the season on Saturday. The Zebrette failed to impress in the Stadio San Siro defeat, but it is well known that they produce much better showings at home than on the travels. Both Tolgay Arslan and Leonardo Buta remain in the recovery room, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The visitors, on the other hand, failed to shock star-studded Roma in their opener, with Bryan Cristante scoring the only goal of the match. Since Salernitana failed to create a descent goal-scoring opportunity in the opening game of the season, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on Udinese. As for the visiting team, defender Matteo Lovato is out of contention with an ankle problem.
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.
