Udinese have been playing well at home and despite their struggles at the bottom half of the table, their matches have been very entertaining. Udinese has been in great form in the scoring department, despite not boasting too many big names in their squad they have scored in each of the 10 games that they have played in this season; and that does wonders for their confidence. They can confidently say they were one of the few teams who have already scored against Juventus, Fiorentina, Milan, Roma, Torino and Sampdoria already this season. Defensively, they seem to have their struggles having conceded in 7 out of 10 games, with their only 3 victories this season seeing them not concede a goal.
Atalanta have been rising slowly up the table and that has seen them boost themselves 9th spot in the table, with victory today potentially taking them upto 6th spot. They managed to win both their games last week against Hellas Verona and Bologna, which helped them come up the table. The form of players like Gomez, Cristante, Ilcic, Cornelisu and Petagna have seen them find the back of the net in 9 out of 10 encounters played this season. Defensively, Atalanta have struggled ever since they got in to the Europa League business, managing on 2 fronts on a weekly basis with not a very deep squad. Prior to last weeks 2 clean sheets against 2 poor offensive sides, they conceded in 7 straight games.
With both teams in outstanding offensive form its hard to not see goals flying through in this game between these 2 strong offensive units. I am backing both teams to definitely hit the back of the net with a few goals being scored.
