Udinese vs Torino by Lone Wolf
Their situation is pretty different.
Udinese, after a problematic starting phase of season, has changed his coach and since Delneri arrived they gave wake-up call playing a decent match versus Juventus, in which they score the first goal of the match (losing then 2-1), and then realizing all of this with 2 wins in the last 2 matches, 3-1 vs Pescara and 1-3 away vs Palermo.
Delneri has permanently shelved the three-man defense that both Colantuono and Iachini had not worked and has gone to 4-3-3 which is producing excellent results and allows to take advantage of the good characteristics of a great right back as Widmer. The midfield is well balanced too: the dynamism of Fofana, the skill in the steps of Kums and Halfredsson combining quantity to quality, the Icelandic national team is very good even in cross Zapata and had already shown last year. With Delneri is back to score even Thereau and finally Zapata is showing its potential.
Torino, instead, is losing his great run after they gathered just 1 point in the last 2 matches.
They played against Inter one of the ugliest games at game intensity level. The team coached by Mihajlovic, usually very aggressive, has left the possession to Inter ball and paid the consequences, even if in the end they was still drawing the game, confirming the potential of the team.
Torino has an attack of high level with Iago Falque, Ljajic and Belotti, without forgetting Boye (a bit disappeared after the very good game played against Roma) that tonight could come back on the field. Even Maxi Lopez is doing well when summoned.
A not entirely convincing is the defense, which also for the kind of very offensive game gives too many shots to the opponents, and that tonight will be without Castan, one of the best so far for his skill in the advances, critical when trying to hold the line of very high defense.
Given the balance of the two teams, and the fact that this is the third match in a week (which can cause particular fatigue to teams with not so wide roster) i'll go with a draw.
