Fiorentina vs Udinese – Prediction, and Match Preview
The oddsmakers have Fiorentina as the 1.90 favorite to win this game, but we are hesitant to place our bets there because the game will take place immediately after the two crucial European matches.
I Viola don’t have a realistic chance to qualify for the European championships next season through the local league because they are eight points behind Roma in seventh position.
Because of this, we anticipate head coach Vincenzo Italiano to rest a few of his key players before the second leg of the European semifinal on Thursday in Switzerland. Udinese has a three-game losing streak yet they are anything but a clueless opponent.
La Zebrette are, after all, only one point below Fiorentina in the top half of the Serie A standings and, on their best days, are more than capable of defeating any opponent in the league.
Udinese defeated Sampdoria and Napoli to earn four points in their last two Serie A games, allowing just one goal in the process.
Fiorentina vs Udinese – Betting Analysis
In their prior visits to Florence, where they had lost 20 of their previous 27 games against I Viola, Udinese did not have much luck.
However, Udinese has prevailed over Fiorentina in three of the previous four meetings, including this season’s 1-0 victory in late August of last year.
In their previous match at Stadio Artemio Franchi in April of last year, Udinese defeated Fiorentina 0-4. Less than three days have passed since Fiorentina’s match against Basel.
We appreciate the 3.80 odds offered for Udinese to win again at Stadio Artemio Franchi even though the game has no relevance for the hosts.
What are the best odds for the game?
Checking on the latest odds for this match in the 90 min. result market, a win for Fiorentina is available for 2.05, going for a drawn result is 3.6 and staking on the winning team to be Udinese can be had at 3.75. These are the top market prices offered as of now.
