Udinese vs ChievoVerona Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

Udinese vs Chievo betting tips & predictions

Udinese and Chievo finished very close to one another last season, so it is fitting that they meet on Sunday to begin the 2017/18 Serie A season. Udinese will look to improve their record against Chievo last season, despite having finished above their visitors in the final standings. Udinese come off a 3-2 victory at home in the Coppa Italia on Saturday when they held on to defeat Frosinone. Cyril Thereau gave them the lead after 29 minutes but they were pegged back before half time. They grabbed the initiative with two goals in less than ten second half minutes through Kevin Lasagna and Jakub Jankto to take a 3-1 lead. They would hang on after surrendering a second just six minutes later. Chievo also won their Coppa Italia match at home. They faced Ascoli an won 2-1 after a thrilling finish. Valter Birsa gave them their lead on 27 minutes only to see his goal erased after 68 minutes by the visitors. However, with extra time looming, Fabrizio Cacciatore through a twist into the tale with a 95th minute winner. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Chievo took four points off of Udinese last season. In the last six outings, these two sides have combined to draw four times. Twice it ended 0-0 and two other times, it ended 1-1. So taking a draw in this match would not be the worst pick ever. However, if a winner must be picked, Udinese are decidedly the side to back. They have the overall advantage all-time against Chievo, and they are sufficiently strong at home to get better and rise up the table this season.

They are at 21/20 for this match, but they can get better odds with victory and a clean sheet at 9/4.

The draw, which would be a great way to hedge your bet in this instance, is at 23/10.

Udinese Preview

Luigi Delneri begins his first full season in charge of Udinese after taking charge back in October of last season. Udinese lacked consistency in his first season in charge. They had runs of great form, but they would soon be followed by a run of matches without good results. That needs to be halted, or the Italian managerial carousel will once again come to collect Delneri as it so often has done in the past. They weren't great anywhere last season, but they won the vast majority of their matches at home, so that will be a hope to build from this term. Their newest version of Antonio di Natale is striker Kevin Lasagna, who has shown an ability to score goals. Like the rest of the team, he will need to find consistency.

Udinese Team News

Udinese have recently signed center midfielder Valon Behrami from Watford, but he will immediately join a host of injuries to worry about. Right back Silvan Widmer, center back Samir, attacking midfielder Antonin Barak, and striker Stipe Perica join him out injured. Center back Danilo also will miss out due to a suspension dating back to the end of last season.

ChievoVerona Preview

Rolando Maran has remained in charge of Chievo since 2014, quite a long stay for Italian standards. Last season he oversaw a decent enough season where they were never in threat of the drop or going any further than lower mid-table. They conceded heaps of goals, and they also had difficulty scoring a lot of times, but they still managed a comfortable finish. This season should really be about the same for them, at best, as they just haven't invested very much to see them push on. The biggest signing has been former Bayern midfielder Gianluca Gaudino, who still has a lot of promise and potential at only the age of 20.

ChievoVerona Team News

Striker Riccardo Meggiorini will miss out for Chievo here due to a knee injury.
