Udinese will engage Empoli at the Dacia Field in a mid-table Serie A conflict on Wednesday (January 4). In seven league contests, the hosts have not won. In their previous match, Udinese lost 3-2 to league leaders Napoli.
They trailed by three goals but came back with two goals in the final 12 minutes. After 15 games, Udinese (24) are eighth in the standings.
In the meantime, Empoli has won two of their last three league games. Nicolo Cambiaghi and Fabiano Parisi scored in the second half to help them beat Cremonese 2-0 at home in their previous match.
I Friulani’s winless streak may continue given their recent struggles. They won their last two amicable games and will hope to proceed with that force here.
Empoli, on the other hand, hasn’t won in their last three visits to Udinese. However, a draw could occur given the recent form of both teams.
