Udinese 11/8 to beat Empoli in Sunday’s Serie A showdown
Competition: Serie A
Market: Udinese win
Odds: 11/8 @ Bet 365
Two sides desperate to extend their buffer over the relegation zone, Udinese will host Empoli at the Dacia Arena on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, arguably saving their best performances for the back end of the season, Udinese will be desperate to secure another season of Serie A football. In their 29 Serie A matches this year, they have recorded seven victories, eight draws and 14 defeats, scoring 27 and conceding 41 in return. With a points tally of 29, Udinese currently sit just two-point above slipping into the relegation zone. However, as for their recent run of form at the Dacia Arena, Sunday’s hosts are enjoying a four-match winning run across all competitions and have also recorded three clean sheets in those victories.
As for the visitors, much like Udinese, Empoli are also enjoying their own end of season bounce and will be looking to secure another season of Serie A football. In their 30 Serie A matches this campaign, they have won seven, drawn seven and lost 16, scoring 38 and conceding 56 in return. Holding just a one-point buffer from slipping into the relegation zone, they also hold the second worse defensive record in the division. While Empoli may have won two of their last three contests, they have lost their last four on the road and have failed to pick up an away victory all season.
