Our match prediction:
Thanks to a 1-1 draw with Atalanta Udinese managed to avoid relegation. The Zebrette will take part in the Italian top flight next season and, no doubt, they will take on Carpi on Sunday night in front of packed stadium. The Biancorossi, on the other hand, suffered a heartbreaking loss to Lazio at the weekend and, as a result, they have slim chances of securing the elite division survival. Carpi face a must-win game against Udinese, but seeing that the Zebrette are desperate to make amends for a heavy 5-1 loss to Torino in their last home game, we predict that the hosts will pick up at least one point from Sunday’s clash. Both sides are likely to go for a win in the Stadio Communale Friuli clash, a high-scoring affair appears on the cards. You should bear in mind that Carpi recorded a 2-1 win over Udinese in their only previous meeting in the national championship.
