Football – Italy – Serie A Betting Tips

Udinese take on Atalanta as the Sunday betting tips continue in the Italian top flight at the Dacia Arena with the hosts needing to pick up points.

Udinese sit in 16th place in Serie A having picked up just one league win from their last nine matches overall which was a creditable 1-0 home win over 7th placed Roma, but recent defeats to AC Milan and Empoli have meant that the hosts still remain dangerously close to the relegation zone.

The hosts are just two points ahead of the bottom three, and with a below-par home record of  2-1-4  4/9 which includes four defeats on the trot prior to their rare win over Roma, Udinese need to pick up more points at home if they’re to avoid a relegation scrap.

Midfielder dePaul (6 goals) and forward Lasagna (2 goals) look the most likely to score for Udinese.

Atalanta occupy a much more comfortable looking mid-table position in the Italian top flight as they prepare to make their way to Udine looking to avoid a third consecutive defeat in Serie A.

The visitors have recently suffered back-to-back defeats to Empoli 3-2 away and a 2-1 defeat at home to Napoli, so Atalanta will also be keen to steady the ship by avoiding defeat at Udinese today, but their results away from home haven’t been entirely convincing.

An away record of  2-2-3  14/14 includes wins at Chievo and Bologna, but also defeats at SPAL, Fiorentina and Empoli as they’ve struggled for consistency on their travels so far this season.

Both teams have scored in 5 of Atalanta’s 7 away matches to date, and with both teams desperately needing to pick up points here, the betting tips advise backing both teams to score.
