Udinese will welcome Benevento in round 16 of the Serie A. Udinese also has one match more to play so we could see them in the middle soon. Both teams will be looking to continue the run of positive results of late but of course Udinese is the big favorite today.
With Massimo Oddo in charge the Udinese team has woken up offensively and did a number on Perugia in the cup 8:3 and have beaten Crotone away 3:0 dominating the entire match. The first match however against Napoli was lost 1:0 but Udinese didn`t make it easy for the visitors who had to figh hard to take a win. Especially good lately were Jankto and Lopez who scored 7 goals in the last 2 matches. Generally the whole team looks much more attacking minded.
Benevento could get some confidence back after drawing with Milan 2:2 the last time around but Milan lately isn`t a serious team. True, Benevento can only go up but I doubt it will happen in this match. They have been abismal all season long and lost all the previous 14 matches conceding 36 goals and scoring only 8. Interestingly enough they scored against Milan, Lazio, Inter and Juventus but I gather a deal of underestimating was involved. Against a serious team with a new coach and new attitude they will suffer again.
Udinese will miss Behrami(mid.7-0) will Benevento is missing the suspended Cataldi(mid.15-0) and attacker Lombardi(9-0).
Udinese must take a win today.
