Serie A Preview | Udinese vs. Bologna: Pressure on Friulani

by | Oct 15, 2021 19:18

Bologna ended their dismal run with a big victory over Lazio and now Udinese want to follow suit after one point from four rounds.

These two sides again started the season with mid-table ambitions that quickly evaporated and will ultimately be pleased just to stay clear of the drop zone.

Sinisa Mihajlovic saved his job with the 3-0 win against Lazio, but consistency has always been their issue and it’s a mystery which Bologna will turn up at the Dacia Arena.

Udinese were unlucky in narrow defeats to Roma and Fiorentina, then ended the run of three consecutive losses with a 3-3 thriller away to Sampdoria. Beto scored his debut Serie A goal and should again start upfront with Gerard Deulofeu.
