Udinese faces Torino in matchday 10 of the Italian Serie A at Friuli Stadium on Sunday.
The home side drew level in Serie A after six straight wins and saw them finish in the top four of the league table after two draws. Last time out, they drew 0-0 with 5th place Lazio.
In Thursday’s Coppa Italia against Monzawa, they suffered their second defeat in all competitions this season. Monza scored right in the second half to win 3-2. Nejuen Perez scored in the second half but to no avail as he went down in the cup race. Torino has drawn their last 5 league matches and recorded 4 defeats in that span. In their previous league match, they lost 1-0 at home to rivals Juventus.
Friulani have seen their form dip a bit recently but are their favorite player in this home game. They have scored 10 goals and conceded 3 goals in their 5 Serie A home games this season.
Toro has failed to score in 3 of their last 5 Serie A matches and the absence of a goal could prove their downfall in this fixture. Of the two teams, Torino will play poorly and the home team can exploit this to win narrowly.
