      Udinese vs Atalanta Predictions

      Udinese entered the Christmas break with a valuable and somewhat surprising 1-0 away win over Torino. It hasn’t been an especially strong season for the club overall, but they’re once again looking capable of surviving in the Serie A for another season.

      Possibly the biggest test of their ability to stay away from the relegation battle once again will come down to games just like this one. Home games against teams like Atalanta could provide crucial points. They have recent inspiration, on December 2 in the fourth round of Coppa Italia, Udinese advanced thanks to a 3-1 win over their opponents on Wednesday.

      Atalanta would have taken ninth place at the Christmas break before the season started, but they did suffer a pair of disappointing defeats losing 1-0 away at Chievo and then 3-1 at home against Napoli. Still, Atalanta return from the break knowing that they are well-positioned to finish around the mid-table mark in Serie A.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Neither team scores a lot of goals

      No reason to believe that they’ll be a lot of goals in this match-up. Udinese has scored just 15 goals in 17 games, while Atalanta haven’t done much better scoring just 19.

      2. Stalemate stylistically

      Both teams will be tempted to sit very deep, put men behind the ball and generally play very similar styles of football. All factors that could easily lead to a stalemated game of football where neither side attacks enough to create an open game.

      3. Settling for a point

      Fear of losing this game might just outweigh the desire to pick up three points for both teams. Starting the post-Christmas period positively is important for both of these clubs and there may just be some settling down or even rust to negate as well.
