The return of Serie A action means a full weekend schedule and these Udinese vs. Genoa predictions focus on two sides struggling for form. Udinese have become draw masters in recent weeks, with Genoa winning just once away from home this season.
Udinese vs. Genoa odds
1 – A draw – 12/5
2 – Udinese under 2.5 total goals – 2/13
3 – Total goals scored under 2.5 – 4/6
4 – Both teams not to score – 37/40
5 – A 0-0 draw – 41/5
This clash features two teams that are struggling to generate any sort of consistent positive league form in the opening weeks of this season, despite their joint progress in the Coppa Italia. Udinese’s home results in Serie A so far this season have registered just one point picked up from three matches, with Genoa’s form on the road bringing up one win and two defeats in league action.
Those results paint a picture of both sides being unable to maintain results on a regular basis and the signs point to them cancelling each other out in this contest and the game ending in a low-key draw.
Unsurprisingly, with their respective results not inspiring much confidence, goals have been an issue for both teams going into this game at the Stadio Friuli.
Udinese have failed to score in all three of their home league games this season, and there is little to suggest that will change against Genoa, despite tightening up in defence.
Genoa’s sole overall win of the campaign came away at Lazio back in August and Mateo Retegui’s winner is the only goal Alberto Gilardino’s side have scored away from home in league action so far this season.
That suggests both sides have major issues in finding the back of the net, with all three of Genoa’s away matches featuring under 2.5 total goals scored and Udinese’s home trio only breaking above that mark once in 2023-24.
This contest could be one of the more forgettable on the schedule this weekend in Serie A. But a point keeps both sides away from a potentially damaging defeat, as they remain stuck in the early season relegation zone.
