Fiorentina vs Udinese
KICK OFF: SUNDAY 2nd SEPT 2018 | 18:00 CET
SERIE A WK3 | STADIO ARTEMIO FRANCHI
Fiorentina Fancied But do they have the Backbone to take down Udinese in this Encounter?
This fixture is traditionally fairly contested, but Fiorentina was the only one smiling on both occasions last season. Cagliari will hope to hit back at the hosts this term and take home a positive result.
Fiorentina didn’t take part on the opening weekend of Serie A due to the bridge collapse in Genoa, but they will be ready to host Cagliari. The last time Fiorentina played a match was against Schalke, where they were well beaten 3 - 0. Their overall pre-season performance had mixed results and its safe to say they are not entirely up to speed as yet.
Udinese came from two goals down to salvage a point at Parma, so the motivation is there. They didn’t score in their last meeting with Fiorentina, but that may not be the case given that Udinese has found the net in each of their last ten games.
Goals are much likely to grace this encounter with nothing to separate the two sides.
Key Match Facts
- Fiorentina has found a goal or more in the last successive eleven meetings with Udinese.
- Udinese has not lost the last three league games (W 2, D1).
