Goalscoring menaces La Dea travel to Udinese

Udinese welcome Atalanta to the Dacia Arena in Italy's north eastern corner hoping they can add to the 3 points that currently separate them from the relegation spots. Atalanta on the other hand are looking to cement their 4th place by keeping Roma, who currently find themselves 6 points behind, at bay.

Udinese

Lucs Gotti's men are coming off the back of an unfortunate 1-0 defeat away at Torino despite being the better side for the better part of the game. The defeat prolonged their winless streak to 8 straight games in league play with 4 of those games ending in defeat and the other 4 in draws.

Tough times

I Friulani are having a torrid season even by their own standards and can be found at a lowly 15th place after amassing a meagre 28 points in 27 games. Their goal difference of 21-38 hardly instills any confidence but that coupled with the fact that they have lost 13(!) games this season has definitely turned them into major relegation candidates.

Struggles against top opposition

Udinese have so far played 6 games against the teams in the top 5 with the result being 20 conceded goals and 2 scored, a pretty horrific statistic to have going into a game against the most lethal attack in the league.

Furthermore, Atalanta won the reverse fixture with 7-1 so if Udinese plan on taking anything from this game they will need to vastly improve in all sectors across the board.

Atalanta

La Dea were losing 1-2 to Lazio in what was one of this seasons most hyped up games before managing to turn it around with goals by Malinovskiy in the 66th minute as well as a José Luis Palomino strike in the 80th minute.

The matchup was widely anticipated due to a number of high-profile factors, the first of which simply being that both teams can be found within the top 4. Another reason being Lazio's title aspirations and close proximity to Juventus in the league standings but also simply because they are 2 of the highest scoring teams this season, and many seasons prior as well.

Insane amount of goals

Gian Piero Gasperini's men are goalscoring machines having found the net an absolutely insane 77 times in 27 games, an average of nearly 3 goals per game(!). They have however conceded 37 goals in the process which has resulted in an unnecessary loss of points but as long as they keep scoring more than they concede they have nothing to worry about.

Great run of form

Atalanta travel to Udinese with a 7 game defeat-less streak, 6 of which ending in victory meaning that the team from Bergamo are in seriously good shape at the moment. Their goal difference of 26-10 from just 7 games tells its own tale of La Dea's goalscoring ability and the fact that they recently saw off a brilliant Lazio in one of the highlights of the season will have Atalanta brimming with confidence.

The Lombards have by far scored the most away goals and are currently 3rd in the away table, only 1 point behind first and second. I do not see their momentum easing up in any away against a struggling Udinese side meaning that Atalanta should find themselves at the top of the away standings after this game, bar any major hiccups.

Betting tip

Atalanta are ridiculously dominant at the moment brushing aside everything that gets thrown at them which is why i will be backing an Atalanta win and over 2.5 goals at 2.05 with Betway.
