The Champions League promotion fighters and the Serie A relegation battlers go head-to-head at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia as Atalanta take on Udinese.
Unbeaten in their last eight games Serie A games (W5, D3), the hosts currently sit two points adrift of fourth-placed AS Roma and could break into top four should they pull off a victory here. Interestingly, La Dea have collected more points on the road this term (26 vs. 30), with Gian Piero Gasperini’s men securing just two triumphs in their last five SA home clashes (W2, D2, L1). Lethal in the final third but not so impressive at the back, the Nerazzurri have netted 2+ match goals in seven of their previous ten home games across all competitions, keeping a clean sheet only twice in the process. As a result, eight of those ten meetings have produced over 2.5 goals with seven of them featuring goals on both ends.
Meanwhile, a disappointing haul of one point from their last three SA outings puts the visitors four points clear of 18th-placed Empoli. Far more comfortable at home, the Friulians have secured just eight of a total of their 33 SA points on the road (24.24%), achieving barely one victory on 16 SA road trips this campaign (W1, D5, L10). What’s more, the Bianconeri have collected only one point in seven SA away fixtures in 2019, conceding over 3.5 away goals per match three times since the turn of the year. Additionally, immense problems in the final third have seen Udinese fail to score on seven of ten of their previous SA road trips, netting over 1.5 match goals just once along the way.
