ROME resident Marco Di Cosmo (@Scioltz) bagged three winners from four at the weekend. Here he runs the rule over Monday night’s Serie A fixture between Udinese and Bologna.
Udinese v Bologna | Monday 20:00 | BT Sport
Udinese against Bologna is the Monday night match in Italy, between two teams only separated by one point, but basically in a safe zone with a comforting cushion ahead of the relegation zone.
The two clubs seem to share the same problems, with a decent offensive quality badly balanced by defensive issues showed up in more than one occasion.
The last seven games for Udinese have finished with both sides scoring, with the Friulani able to register a goal in each, while conceding at least once in all of their last 11.
Bologna have a inconstant trend; they were able to make a stunning run in the second part of last season but are struggling at the beginning of this year.
Their attacking side is not properly a goal machine but I’m confident they could be able to provide some worries to Udinese, exposing their defensive fragilities, and also relying on recoveries from injury problems in their offensive trio.
