Udinese fans can be satisfied with how their team is playing at the start of the championship. They started the season winning 2-1 in the Coppa Italia against FeralpiSalo. In the first round they played against current Italian champion Milan, and they lost as it was expected.
In the next two rounds, they made 4 points and currently they are in 11th place in the table. They played without goals (0:0) at home against Salernitana, and in the last round they won a difficult away game against newcomers in the league, Monza.
In that match, Monza took the first goal in the 32nd minute, but the joy of the home team was short-lived, only 4 minutes later Beto equalized, and 12 minutes before the end, the young Destiny Udogie made the final 2-1 for Udinese. That’s how the team from Udine won for the first time this year in Serie A.
Andrea Sottil won’t be able to count on Leonardo Buto for this match due to a leg injury.
Fiorentina is undefeated so far in the 2022/23 season in all competitions. In Serie A, after the first three rounds, they are in 9th place with 5 points won, as many as eighth-placed Juventus, only with a better goal difference.
They opened the season in Italy with a 3-2 win against Cremonese, then they played the next two rounds with Empoli away and Napoli at home without goals. These two games showed that Viola has problems with realization despite frequent attacks and a large number of opportunities in front of the opponent’s goal.
In the meeting with Napoli, we could see a quality of the “purples”, with plenty of opportunities from both sides, but the nets remained calm for the entire 90 minutes.
Due to injuries, Gaetano Castrovilli and Szymon Zurkowski won’t be in the competition for the team that will be led by coach Vincenzo Italiano on Wednesday.
Fiorentina has a better H2H score in duels with the Udinese. In 46 matches played, team from Florence won 24 times, and team from Udine 12 times, 10 matches ended with no winner.
Udinese (3-5-2): Marco Silvestri – Bram Nuytinck – Rodrigo Becao – Adam Masina – Sandi Lovrić Roberto Pereyra – Walace – Jean-Victor Makengo – Destiny Udogie – Gerard Deulofeu – Beto
Fiorentina (4-3-3): Pierluigi Gollini – Cristiano Biraghi – Igor Julio – Nikola Milenkovic – Lorenzo Venuti – Rolando Mandragora – Antonin Barak – Alfred Duncan – Riccaro Sottil – Nicolas Gonzalez – Luka Jovic
Udinese vs. Fiorentina Prediction
Date and time: Aug.31.2022. 18:30 CET
Pick: Over 2.5 goals
Both teams have great players, the popular Zebras will want to win three more points in front of their fans after their first victory in the new Serie A season.
On the other hand, Fiorentina will also look for a second victory in the championship after two draws, and for that they need a much better execution in the attack.
The visitors might be the better team and should win this match. In 10 of Udinese’s previous 12 matches we have seen at least three goals per match, we expect it to be the same on Wednesday, so our suggestion for this match is three or more goals (2.5 over goals).
