Udinese vs Spezia: prediction for the Serie A match
Udinese sit in the middle of the Serie A table with 44 points from 36 games. The team has delivered decent performance this season, especially at home, while on their travels Le Zebrette recorded only four victories. Last time out, Gabriele Cioffi's charges snatched a draw against Sassuolo - they conceded in the 6th minute and leveled the score at the end of the second half (1:1).
Spezia are in 16th place in the Serie A standings, four points clear of the relegation zone. Their position is quite risky, especially considering the team's poor form - Thiago Motta's side lost their last four matches. Two weeks ago, the Little Eagles lost to Lazio (3:4), and last Sunday, they suffered a defeat at the hands of Atalanta (1:3).
Udinese won the last 2 head-to-head games with this score.
In 2 of the last 4 games away, Spezia didn't score.
In the last 3 head-to-head games, Udinese didn't score more than one goal.
We believe that Udinese will prevail in this confrontation. The team recorded narrow victories over Spezia in the last two games away, and we think that Le Zebrette will have no problems against the Little Eagles at home. Moreover, Udinese are in decent form, while their visitors are on a four-game losing streak.
Our prediction - Udinese to win
We do not expect a high-scoring game here. The opponents rarely score a lot in head-to-head games and failed to overcome the total in the last three meetings. Plus, at home Udinese usually are very reliable on defese.
Second bet - total under 2.5 goals
