Serie A is back with another match this weekend as Udinira face Fiorentina in a crucial game on Sunday. Both teams have been inconsistent over the past year and have a point to prove this weekend.
Udinese are currently tenth in the standings at Serie A and have not made much progress this season. They lost 1-0 at home to AS Roma earlier this week and will have to go ahead in this match.
Fiorentina, on the other hand, are sixth in the league table and have been fairly impressive this season. La Viola lost 1-1 to Inter Milan in their previous game and will have to return against Udinese.
Udinese vs Fiorentina head-to-head
Fiorentina have a great record against Udinese and have won 23 of 44 matches played between the two teams. Udinese have won 11 games against Fiorentina and will have to be the best in this match.
The previous game between the two teams took place in February this year and they won 1-0 for Udinese. Fiorentina missed several opportunities during the day and will need to be more clinical this weekend.
