Udinese – Verona

Udinese welcomes Hellas Verona in a match from the 18th round of the Italian Serie A.

Both teams are uplifted after they amazing wins last weekend. They both managed to beat two of the big giants of Italian football – Inter and Milan. Udinese achiever a shocking win over Inter at the Stadio San Siro, removing them from the top, while Hellas Verona totally crushed Milan with 3-0 at home.

Now the question is – which one of these two teams will manage to repeat its performance on Saturday afternoon?

Udinese are in a much better position than Verona, when it comes to the Serie A standings. They are 11th in the league with 21 points won so far and a record 7 wins and 9 losses. It’s very curious that Udinese are still without even one draw in their results so far – they are the only team in Italy with such an achivement so far.

Hellas Verona’s situation is much more complicated. They are currently 19th in the Serie A standings, being only above Benevento in the table. They have 13 points won so far, but the picture is not that bad – the difference between the 19th Hellas Verona and the 17th Genoa is just one point. Which means that Verona are far away from the moment when they are going to be feel desperate for themselves.

Taking into account their position in the league, home ground advantage and overall quality, Udinese are the obvious favourite in this clash. Their spirits are going to be really lifted after the win against Inter, but we can say the same about Hellas Verona after their triumph against Milan. It’s going to be an interesting clash, that’s for sure. Both teams are feeling enthusiastic at the moment, but one of them will have to deal with a possible loss.
