Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Udinese v Parma are shown on this page (including the best match odds).
Udinese will be hoping to return to winning ways here following the 0-1 Serie A defeat in their last game at the hands of Roma.
In that match, Udinese managed 44% possession and 12 shots on goal with 6 on target. For their opponents, Roma had 13 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. Pedro (55') was the scorer for Roma.
An interesting aspect of more recent Udinese games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.
Taking their previous sextet of clashes before this one, in 5 of them a bet on BTTS would have been a losing one.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Udinese:
- have not beaten Parma in their previous 5 league games.
- are without a win at home for the past 3 league matches.
Parma will go into this clash following on from a 1-0 Serie A win as they beat Hellas Verona in their last fixture.
In that game, Parma managed 39% possession and 11 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Parma was Jasmin Kurtić (1'). On the other side, Hellas Verona had 8 shots on goal with 2 on target.
Looking at their form, and Parma have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 12 goals overall. At the back, I Crociati have some weaknesses to address. That pattern might not be carried forward into this match, though.
Coming into this fixture, Parma have not been beaten by Udinese in games played away from home for the previous 2 league matches.
Head to head

The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Simone Iacoponi, Giuseppe Carriero, Giacomo Ricci, Marcello Gazzola and Andrea Dini.
For this match, we think that Parma will manage to score a goal against this Udinese lineup, however that probably won’t quite be as many as they will have scored against them.
We reckon that it will be a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 victory for Udinese at the end of the 90 minutes.
