Albert Gudmundsson needs one more goal to reach double figures – Photo by Icon sport

Player to watch – Albert Gudmundsson

Udinese found it difficult to handle Albert Gudmundsson when they drew 2-2 with Genoa in November. The Icelandic forward scored both of Genoa’s goals on that occasion and he could threaten again on Saturday.

Gudmundsson to reach double figures

Albert Gudmundsson need just one more goal to reach double figures for the Serie A campaign for Genoa and the 26-year-old could be worth backing to hit that milestone on Saturday.
