Competition: Serie A
Market: Fiorentina win
Odds: 6/5 @ Bet 365
Looking to build on their astonishing showing in midweek, Fiorentina will travel to a struggling Dacia Arena on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with Sunday’s hosts, while Udinese may have somehow managed to avoid the drop last season, their worrying form entering the New Year will be a huge concern for Davide Nicola. Coming off the back of a 4-0 hammering away at Sampdoria last weekend, the Whites have now lost their last two Serie A matches on the bounce and are quickly freefalling into a relegation battle. With just one win to their name since the end of November, Nicola will also know that his side must improve their performances at the Dacia. Winning just one of their last four matches on home soil, Fiorentina also picked up a 2-1 win in the reverse fixture.
As for the visitors, putting seven past Roma in midweek and booking their spot in the semi-finals of this year’s Coppa Italia, the mood in Stefano Pioli’s camp will be on a season high. Now winning their last two matches on the bounce and yet to taste defeat in any competition since the turn of the New Year, another win for the Purples this weekend would see them climb into the European positions. Now scoring 10 in their last two outings, Fiorentina are also enjoying a nine-match unbeaten run away from the Stadio Artemio Franchi.
