Reason For Udinese vs Verona Predictions

  • Udinese have lost 4 of their last 5 games, scoring only 3 goals.
  • The Zebrette have scored less than a goal per game at home this term.
  • Verona have seen under 2.5 goal in 73% of their away trips.
  • Each of Verona’s last 4 games have seen fewer than 3 goals scored.

Like a Bat out of Hell-as

The club with the league’s smallest wage budget rarely troubles the top half in most major European leagues. In Italy, they sit in sixth. The last newly-promoted side to place higher in the standings after the first 23 Serie A games were Juventus (3rd) in 2007-08.

Verona are in fantastic shape after a tough summer, which saw them cycle through managers before landing on outside candidate Ivan Juric. Juric has shaken off his previous tough spells at Genoa to excel with Verona. The club are into the European spots following last weekend’s success against Juventus, while they head out on the road this week aiming to keep the good form going.

Big Trouble in Udine

Udinese have struggled for form in recent weeks, which has pushed them within reach of the bottom three. The hosts have lost four of their last five games, scoring just three times in the process. They’ve fallen within six points of danger as a result, leaving them looking nervous ahead of this clash.

Verona’s climb is likely to cause even more headaches for the hosts, who are yet to beat a top six side this season. So far, their two matches against them at home have ended in defeats to nil. Overall, Udinese have scored just twice in seven meetings with the current top six, while their 11 matches in Udine this season have seen the Zebrette score just 10 goals.

Watertight Verona

While Udinese are struggling in attack, Verona are making waves with their great defence. The visitors have conceded only four goals in 2020 and they are unbeaten in Serie A in this period: no side has conceded fewer goals since the start of the new year – level with Lazio. They’ve conceded 12 in 11 away trips, while they meet a Udinese side who have five-goal Rodrigo de Paul as their top-scorer.

Verona are similarly lacking in attack, with Giampaolo Pazzini their top scorer with only four goals. Neither side have been high-scorers this season, while 64% of Udinese’s home games have seen under 2.5 goals. Verona have seen over 2.5 in just 27% of their away trips, with their last four Serie A matches on the bounce seeing under three goals scored.

We’re backing under 2.5 goals as our main tip here, with Verona likely to keep things tight. The away side have been adept at punishing struggling teams, with 23 points from a possible 27 against the bottom eight. Given that Udinese have lost six of their seven meetings with the curent top six, we are backing a 1-0 away victory here.
