Udinese to Win
Udinese are unbeaten in their last four matches after they secured a 2-2 draw with Juventus last time out, while Venezia lost their opening game of the campaign away at Napoli. The hosts have won their last two competitive home games against Venezia and even though the pair's last encounter in Serie A was two decades ago, we're backing Udinese to win on Friday night.
Over 2.5 Goals
Five of Udinese's last six outings have produced over 2.5 goals and we're expecting Friday's clash to be action-packed as well. Venezia conceded twice in their first game of the new season but also won a recently friendly against Utrecht 3-2 and two of their last three league meetings with Udinese have witnessed at least three goals being scored.
Both teams have scored in three of the last five encounters between Udinese and Venezia and we're predicting that there will be goals scored at both ends of the pitch on Friday. Both teams have also scored in four of Udinese's last six matches in all competitions and Venezia have only failed to find the back of the net in two of their last six outings.
Udinese vs Venezia : Key Stats & Markets
Udinese looking to build upon positive result against Juventus
Udinese came from two goals behind at home to Juventus to earn a share of the spoils last weekend. Goals from Dybala and Cuadrado put Juve 2-0 up at the interval but a Pereyra penalty was followed up by a Deulofeu strike in the second half to help Udinese to an unlikely point. With confidence high and only striker Illja Nestorovski missing through injury, Udinese are our pick to secure all 3pts on Friday night.
Venezia have a clean bill of health ahead of their trip to Udinese and after facing Napoli away in their last match, the visitors will be hoping for an easier time against Friday's hosts. Goals look like they could prove to be an issue for Venezia this season, though, it is still very early days. A positive result on Friday would go a long way to easing the nerves of the Venezia players, staff and fans, but we just don't think it's going to go their way.
