Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Buoyed by a 4-0 win over Cagliari, Udinese will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Salernitana at Dacia Arena on Tuesday evening. The Zebrette impressed in their last league match, and, as a result, the bookies see them as hot favourites to win the midweek game. Midfielder Pereyra should be the only absentee in the home team.
I Granata, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-0 loss to Inter, with the team remaining in the ultimate position in the standings. The newcomers do not seem to be competitive at this level, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Udinese’s party at Dacia Arena. All Coulibaly, Strandberg, Veseli, Capezzi, and Ruggeri are sidelined with injuries, while Vergani faces race against clock to be fit for the midweek clash.
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.
