Match status: 2019/20 Serie A - Matchweek 19
Venue: Dacia Arena (Udine)

Following a stop-start season so far, Udinese have managed to find some form of rhythm. Interim boss, Luca Gotti who replaced the sacked Igor Tudor, has picked up four wins and two draws in the nine games in charge. La Zebrette have also picked up back to back league wins for the first time this season and have the opportunity to make it three in a row.

Sassuolo have also had an average season and must be just satisfied with their league standing. Il Neroverdi are 14th on the table, five points clear of the relegation zone and they will be hoping the status quo remains the same till the end of the season.

Udinese vs Sassuolo Team News

Udinese made it two wins out of two in their last league match against Lecce. Rodrigo De Paul’s goal was enough to seal a 1-0 victory and hand Udinese back to back wins for the first time this season.

In attack, Udinese have been subpar, netting just fourteen times in the league so far. Chip in an outrageous goal difference of minus fourteen – the lowest in the league – and it is clear to see why they have at times, struggled for form this season.

At home, Luca Gotti’s men have been less than impressive, recording four wins, two draws and three losses. In those encounters, they have netted an average of 0.78 goals per game and shipped in 1.11 goals per game in return.

Their defence is also a source of concern and they have shipped in 28 goals so fat this term, a statistic that will need to improve if they are to finish in the top half of the table by the end of the season.

Sassuolo are in all kinds of trouble at the moment and their woeful run continued with a 2-1 defeat away at Genoa last time out. Pedro Obiang equalized following Domenico Criscito’s penalty goal, but a late strike by veteran striker, Goran Pandev condemned Il Neroverdi to their second consecutive league loss.

That defeat was their second in three games and they have managed just one win in their last seven league matches.

Roberto De Zerbi’s men have rather been impressive on the road and were on a five game unbeaten streak away from home, prior to their last match. Il Neroverdi enjoy scoring on away grounds, with an average of 1.22 goals per game, but they have equally gotten as good as they give, conceding 1.44 goals per game in return.

They also have the joint-second worst defence in the league, conceding 31 goals so far. Surprisingly, in attack, they are one of the better sides in the league, with their 30 strikes so far enough to see them rank seventh among the highest-scoring sides.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Udinese: No missing players.

Sassuolo: Marlon Santos, Vlad Chiriches, Domenico Berardi, Manuel Locatelli.

Udinese vs Sassuolo Predictions

With Udinese’s rather poor defensive record and Sassuolo’s knack for scoring away from home, you can expect a couple of goals in this one. However, Udinese are high on confidence at the moment, and buoyed by their fans should go ahead to win this.
