Going into this contest, Parma have not won at home in their last 9 league matches. Something needs to change.
Since a losing effort in their last game against Roma in Serie A action, Udinese and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that match, Udinese managed 48% possession and 6 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target. On the other side, Roma had 13 shots on goal with 5 on target. Jordan Veretout (5', 25') and Pedro (93') scored for Roma.

Going into this contest, Udinese have not beaten Parma in away games against them for the last 4 league matches. Not good at all.

Mattia Sprocati is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Udinese
Udinese boss Luca Gotti has multiple availability issues to deal with. Martin Palumbo (Unknown Injury), Fernando Forestieri (Muscular problems), Mato Jajalo (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Roberto Pereyra (Hamstring Injury) and Ignacio Pussetto (Cruciate Ligament Injury) can’t be considered. Sebastian Prödl cannot play in this game through suspension.
Our thinking is that Parma will have to perform well to hit the back of the net against this Udinese outfit who we think will end up scoring and staying ahead.
We’re therefore expecting a narrow 0-1 winning margin for Udinese when the full-time whistle blows.
