Atalanta vs Udinese predictions and betting tips on March 4, 2023
On March 4, Gewiss Stadium (Bergamo) will host the match of the 25th round of the Serie A, in which Atalanta will compete with Udinese. The battle will start at 18:00 CET.
The team is playing in the current season, comparing to the previous one, in accordance with a “light” schedule. However, it is hardly happy about that: the last draw was a failure, because the regular participant of the Champions League was left without a ticket to the European competitions. It was clear that the rise, compared to 2021/2022, was almost inevitable – still, it goes without saying that the main task was to come back into the top 4. The higher mentioned goal is a difficult one, even though Juventus has been de facto thrown out of the struggle for the trophy – the grandee has got a 15-point fine during the draw. At the same time, “the Bergamascs” are not perfect. What’s the point of beating Lazio if before that there had been a 0-1 defeat in the home match with Sassuolo, and after the success in Rome there had been a 1-2 misfire in the battle with Lecce? Well, those games were followed by a seemingly hopeless 0-2 defeat against Milan.
The club in many ways has already stated a discreet status of the middle peasants. Moreover, it is the one that is closer to the relegation zone (however, without a real threat of relegation to the Serie B), than at least to minimal claims for European competitions. Recently, many mentors have been changed in Friuli, as a rule, not particularly well-known ones. In the summer, the position was occupied by Andrea Sottil, who had ended his football career not so long ago. The new coach was demonstrating powerful results from the end of August to the beginning of October – he managed to win 6 matches in a row in the Calcio at that time. Then, the fans even started talking about the European competitions or even the ambitions to struggle for the Champions League. Nevertheless, having played a half dozen championship matches, “the Zebras” took only one victory in the battle against Sampdoria that was at the relegation zone. There were chances for success with Spezia, but the home match resulted in a 2-2 draw.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
The last time Udinese won a head-to-head match was in 2017. At the same time, 2 out of 3 previous battles, including the one that happened in the current season, ended in draws.
