Competition: Serie A
Market: Over 1.5 goals
Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport
Hoping to try and find a route back into the European spots on Thursday night, Fiorentina will welcome Udinese to the Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Starting with the hosts, heading into the festive break with back-to-back draws against Verona and Sassuolo, Fiorentina will be hoping to lay down a marker when they return to action here. Still gaining plenty of plaudits from across Italy this season, the Purples really have their sights set on bringing European football back to the Stadio Artemio Franchi. With just their goal difference keeping them outside the top-six, Head Coach Vincenzo Italiano still finds his side enjoying a six-match unbeaten run. Continuing to gain a reputation for their performances in the final third, Thursday’s hosts will be calling on attacking talisman Dušan Vlahović to spearhead their charge in midweek. Heavily linked with a Premier League switch this month, the Serbian sensation has racked up 16 Serie A goals in his 19 outings this season.
As for the visitors, while Udinese might have struggled with their consistency this season, they will be boosted by a hugely impressive run when heading into the festive break. Finding a way to build off of their scrappy 1-1 draw against AC Milan on December 11th, caretaker boss Gabriele Cioffi has also seen his squad land back-to-back 4-0 romps against Cagliari and Crotone. Skyrocketing their way away from the drop zone and now looking up the table, the Bianconeri have in fact lost just one of their previous six outings. With their recent improvements highlighted by what was a stunning 4-4 draw against European contenders Lazio last month, we could be in for a lively affair at the Stadio Artemio Franchi. With each of their last four away fixtures finishing with over 2.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Fiorentina vs Udinese 4/11 for Thursday’s Serie A showdown @ 888sport
