The Bianconeri have looked a team reborn under Andrea Sottil this season, winning five of their opening seven matches and only suffering a loss on opening day to reigning champions Milan. A win against Verona tonight would take them third in the league table and continue their hope of fighting for European qualification.
Things have been different in Veneto; Hellas Verona have struggled without Igor Tudor at the helm and Gabriele Cioffi will hope to secure a positive result against his former club, which he left earlier this year. The Gialloblu are currently stuck in the relegation zone, winning only once so far this season.
Hellas Verona’s last win came on September 4, when they beat fellow relegation candidates Sampdoria, whilst Udinese have won their last five outings, picking up victories over Inter, Sassuolo, Roma, Fiorentina and Monza.
