CAPRI v UDINESE – SERIE A
January 9 2016,Alberto Braglia Stadion, 14:00 GMT +0
Today we have a match of 19th round of Serie A, 19th placed Carpi hosts 11th placed Udinese. This will be the 1st match between these two team in their history
Carpi is not showing great form this season, with 1 win in the last 10 matches in the Serie A, they have one of the worst forms in the league and deserve to be second to last in the league table. They are not even showing great performances playing at home as they won 1 out of 10 matches. Carpi will start this match without a few players Fedele, Bubnjic and Bilanco. Also they have a problem with bookings, as if and of the next players Isaac Cofie, Lorenzo Lollo, Luca Marrone, Ricardo Gagliolo and Gabriel SIlva get booked they will miss their next match. This is a though situation, as 1 mistake from those 5 players will cause them to miss their next match.
Their opponents today Udinese are currently 11th in the league with 24 points. They are comming from 2 consecutive wins against Atalanta (2:1) and Torino (0:1), but suffered 2 huge losses against Inter (0:4) and Fiorentina (3:0). This only shows they play well against teams at the bottom part of the league, whereas they struggle against better teams, and their mid table position is deserved. Udinese have a record playing on the road (4-1-4), which is not great, but compared to Carpi home record (1-3-5) it’s good enough for me to give Udinese an edge in this game.The “Friuliani ” will start this match without Merkel, Domizzi and Pasquale due injury, but will welcome back 2 valuable players to this team, Kone and Wague.
All in all Udinese should win this match against in my opinion a strong candidate for joining Serie B next season.
Prediction: Udinese -0.25
