Udinese vs Empoli (By: Dajkula)
Udinese welcomes Empoli in the round 31 of the Serie A. With 8 rounds to go this one may not be crucial but will count for a lot at the bottom of the table. Udinese is 16`th with 29 points while Empoli is 17`th with 28 points but with a game more. They are really fighting with Bologna which has 27 points and holds that last relegation place.
Udinese is picking up some pace with the installment of coach Tudor two rounds ago. It is his second installment in a year and this time he may stay a while. At home, they won over Genoa 2:0 while they also made a good comeback against Milan away and took a 1:1 draw.
Now Udinese is looking good at home with wins in a row and a draw with Fiorentina. The total at home is 6-3-6 with 15:17 gd. Against Empoli, they have a chance to improve that.
Empoli is just a point behind Udinese and is also improving its game. They look really solid at home where they haven`t lost in 5 matches and took 3 wins, including Napoli. That, however, doesn`t translate well when Empoli travels this season. Empoli is jet to win away from home this season and they are the second worst team away. With only 4 draws and 10 losses, only Chievo is worse. Empoli has lost the last 4 away but faced some of the best sides of the league.
I suppose a chance for a draw is there but Udinese has some good wind in their sails and is facing a side that can`t win away. I will go for a home win.
Udinese will be missing a few regulars like Behrami(mid.19-1) and Nuytinck(def.24-1).
Empoli is without Acquah(mid.23-1), La Gumina(att.22-2), Mchedlidze(att.8-0), Rasmussen(def.1-0).
