On May 8, Dacia Arena (Cremona) will host the match of the 34th round of the Serie A, in which Udinese will compete with Sampdoria. The battle will start at 18:30 CET.
The club has been “hanging out” at a very modest level for a long time. It goes without saying that everyone remembers the successes, which are connected to the super legend, Di Natale. At the same time, people have long been accustomed to the fact that “the Zebras” finish somewhere below the middle of the standings, but above the relegation zone, and noticeably above the danger zone. The new mentor, Sottil, who came to the club in the previous summer, started his job in an extremely optimistic way – “the Black and Whites” have consistently won in 6 Calcio matches in a row since in the end of August. Still, if there were talks about a possible return to the European competitions, they quickly faded out due to the mediocre results – there was only 1 victory in the Calcio from mid-October to March. The team took the victories in the battles against Empoli, Cremonese and, sensationally, Milan in the spring (however, the last of the higher mentioned opponents was in a serious hole). On the other hand, it was able to achieve a draw in the confrontation with Napoli on Thursday. To be honest, a 1-1 score was enough for the guests to receive the long-awaited Scudetto officially.
The team has been already relegated to the Serie B. There were the times when everyone in Genoa was not happy due to the fact that it had not possible to return to the European competitions. Nowadays, the club has completely failed. It is even lower than a newcomer-underdog, Cremonese. The return of Dejan Stanković to Italian football as a coach has not really given anything. There is not much progress under the rule of the Serbian specialist. At the same time, it is reasonable to mention that the young mentor, who appeared at the position in the autumn, is not going to be fired – the management, obviously, understands that nothing can be changed or improved. Although the team took the points in the matches against Lecce and Spezia in April – both games resulted in a 1-1 draw. Still, the previous round brought another non-variable defeat – a 0-2 one made by Torino.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Speaking about the previous season, Udinese got 4 points out of 6 possible. And the current tournament brought to “the Zebras” an away victory with a 1-0 score in January.
Bookmakers are confident in the victory of the hosts. Udinese is not bad, but, that is the most important, the guests are more than in bad conditions. Thus, we bet on the victory of “the Zebras” with “a -1 goal handicap” (odd: 1.92).
