Team Form

Udinese

Enduring its 2nd straight defeat, Udinese’s main man, Francesco Guidolin was disappointed for the club’s inability to capitalize in their scoring opportunities. Moreover, losing to Catania, a club which is one of the bottom two, added insult to the injury.

 

Udinese currently experiences a scoring drought. They conceded goals in 4 of their last 6 matches, while their opponents kept a clean sheet. It all started during their match against AC Milan where the latter scored a goal. Roma followed the Rossonerri’s footsteps and secured a goal. They were able to get back to their feet when they met Sassuolo but they ended up scoreless against Inteer’s 3-0 thrashing,
Such lackluster performance has readily pushed Udinese from Serie A’s elite. Now, the club occupies the 12th spot and hopes to make it to the top 10 when they meet Fiorentina.

 

Fiorentina

Definitely, Fiorentina proved to be one of the strongest clubs to grace the season. Recently, it incurred another 3 points when they went against Sampdoria.
Fiorentina’s overall team form is nothing short of being impressive. Occupying the 5th spot, they pose the threat of being Serie A’s dark horse. Its last 6 matches show that they have only lost once. Four (4)  of them ended in a victory, one ended in a draw and the other is a disappointing loss. Nevertheless, the success of this club is a certified eye-catcher. What is even more spectacular is the way they behave during away matches. Out of the 10 matches performed outside their own ground, they won eight (8). Thus, going against Udinese barely brings a headache to the club.
