Today's Predictions for Udinese vs Spezia

Spezia have taken just one point from the last 15 on offer in Serie A as they prepare to face Udinese in the Italian top tier on Sunday. Read our top Udinese vs Spezia predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Udinese to Win

Spezia have been playing like prime relegation candidates in recent weeks as evidenced by their return of one draw and four defeats from their last five assignments in Serie A, and their poor form makes them well worth opposing again on Sunday. To compound their misery, the visitors have some personnel issues heading into the weekend and with the Aquilotti’s ranks depleted, a home win is favoured for our first Udinese vs Spezia prediction.

Over 1.5 Udinese Team Goals

Only two clubs have conceded more goals in Serie A than Spezia this season and their inability to keep the door shut at the back has seen them concede at least two goals in each of their last six games in league and cup. With their defensive problems showing little sign of improvement, Spezia could be in trouble again on Sunday. With that considered, a stake on Udinese to net over 1.5 times could be an avenue to consider.

Udinese vs Spezia Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Udinese vs Spezia lineups and team news for Sunday’s fixture below.

Udinese

Enzo Ebosse is out with an ACL injury and isn't expected back in the fold until next season, while Gerard Deulofeu is still struggling to overcome his own knee issue. Jaka Bijol meanwhile, is suspended following an accumulation of bookings. He picked up his latest card in Udinese's 3-1 loss at Inter Milan last weekend.

Predicted Lineup for Udinese: Silvestri – Becao, Perez, Ebosse – Ehizibue, Pereyra, Walace, Lovric, Udogie – Thauvin, Beto

Spezia

Emil Holm, Simone Bastoni and Jeroen Zoet are out injured for Spezia while Salvatore Esposito is suspended. There are also concerns about Joao Moutinho, Jacopo Sala and Szymon Zurkowski ahead of the weekend. Spezia limped to a 2-0 loss at home to Juventus in their last Serie A test.

Predicted Lineup for Spezia: Dragowski – Amian, Ampadu, Nikolaou, Reca – Bourabia, Ekdal – Verde, Agudelo, Gyasi – Shomurodov

Player to Watch – Beto

Portuguese striker Beto has scored seven times in 15 Serie A starts for Udinese this season, though he has notched just once in his last ten appearances. Despite his dry spell, Premier League club Everton are believed to be ready to part with around £26m for the 25-year-old in the summer and Beto will hope to impress his suitors with an impactful display on Sunday.
