Atalanta vs Udinese predictions and betting tips for the Serie A fixture on Monday 29th April 2019 where the home side, nicknamed La Dea, are looking to get back into the top four positions with just a few matches remaining.
Kick-off time: 6pm BST
Date: Monday 29th April 2019
Venue: Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia
The Black and Blues are still well in the hunt for a top four place and will go back above AS Roma with a win on Monday night. They will have one eye on Sunday’s match between Torino and AC Milan too, with the Milanese side currently above them on head to head. They will be hoping Milan drop points in that match to give themselves to put top 4 and Champions League qualification back in their own hands. Udinese have had a forgetful season and have flirted with relegation for most of the campaign. They currently sit four points above the drop zone with a game in hand on Empoli, so it looks as though they’ve done just enough to remain in the Italian top flight.
Udinese’s record away from home is woeful and manager Igor Tudor needs to turn their fortunes around. They come into this match off the back of 13 matches without a win away from home, and they’ve lost six of their last seven on the road, drawing the other.
Atalanta got into the Coppa Italia final in midweek, beating Fiorentina 5-4 on aggregate and we correctly predicted Atalanta to win 2-1 in our preview. That puts them on the brink of history but they’ll be hopeful of a victory here to push on for the Champions League places.
The odds for Atalanta to beat Udinese in Serie A this week are only 1/3, but we’re using the ‘to win to nil’ market to get 6/5 for the first of our Atalanta vs Udinese predictions. Get the Ladbrokes £30 free bet sign-up offer via this link.
For an anytime goalscorer selection on the match, Duvan Zapata is the obvious choice and he’s favourite in the goalscorer odds but instead we’re going for his team-mate Josip Ilicic to get his second goal in as many games after finding the net vs Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia match last time out. He’s 6/5 to score antyime against Udinese this week.
We’re already tipping an Atalanta win to nil in this match and that can be backed up with a correct score prediction too. They have had a bit of an indifferent home record in recent weeks but only Juventus have picked up more Serie A points than Atalanta in 2019. They are really strong at home on the whole though, and tend to win matches comfortably. Udinese’s troubles are clear for everybody to see and they have failed to score in their last two away fixtures.
The third of our Atalanta vs Udinese predictions is for Atalanta to win 2-0 and the best odds for this bet are 6/1 with Ladbrokes.
