Udinese vs Parma Prediction & Betting tips
Udinese and Parma were both eliminated early in the cup by a team from a lower division and thus had a long winter break. The earlier encounter this season ended in 2-2, all goals were then made in a 26-minute time frame.
At Udinese the first half of the season was turbulent. Under the new young trainer Velasquez did not want to raft, he opted for a play that did not fit his material so that between the end of September and mid-November followed a series of six defeats and one draw. As expected, Velasquez was fired, his successor Davide Nicola immediately started with a profit on AS Roma. In the next six games, six more points were taken, making Udinese reasonably safe at five points away from the relegation zone.
During the winter break, Udinese did not sit still, in the summer many (especially young) players were brought in and last week Marvin Zeegelaar of Watford was added. In addition, with one more day to go until the deadline Schiattarella from SPAL will also be added to the selection, as trainer Nicola is very impressed with the midfielder.
In the first half of the season, a clear division has arisen. Among the absolute top is a group of nine teams within seven points distance that aces at the European spots. Where the fourth Champions League spot and the two fixed Europa League spots are likely to become a prey for Lazio, Milan and Roma, there is a group of six teams still battling for place seven, which can give the right to preliminary round Europa League. Parma is from that list the bottom team that is still in the running, although it will be a difficult job to pass the easy-scoring teams like Atalanta and Sampdoria.
For a while, Parma seemed to be serious about it, in the months of September and October was played well and four of the first six games ended in a win and there were even chances for a draw against Juventus. Eventually it turned out that the player material is not good enough to keep up with this in the long term, especially top purchase Gervinho is missed with a node if he is absent.
