Venue: Stadio Friuli

 

Udinese did an impressive job of preventing Inter to score important points against them.  It also safeguarded them from the possibility of engaging into a tough and fierce survival battle during the remaining days of the season. The online betting favorite is pitted to go against the minnow Catania, which is doomed to leave the top-flight league soon.

 

If there is anyone who truly deserves the credit during the Inter clash, this is no other than Udinese’s goalkeeper, Simeone Scuffet. He has successfully intercepted all the scoring opportunities that Inter had and helped his club secure a scoreless draw.

 

Scuffet’s spectacular display of talent and skills can be attributed to his strong desire to be one of the well-revered contingents during the World Cup. It is for this reason that he gives his 100% in each and every match that the club participates into.

 

Such kind of aggressiveness and determination posits real danger to Catania. So far, the latter has one of the saddest stories in the league. Despite efforts of moving out of the relegation zone, here they are, still licking the wounds they incurred during their Napoli face off.

 

Catania entered the season filled with confidence. They were in the top 10 and to see them fall into the rock bottom part of the table, is indeed, very heartbreaking. The previously mentioned defeat simply sealed their fate in Serie A and signaled their entry into the second division.

 

The Rossazzurri’s recent defeat marked their 6th winless streak.

 

Prediction: Udinese
