A league season that started with a win is fast unravelling for Udinese, who have drawn three consecutive blanks. Their matches have been low on entertainment as well, with four of their five Serie A (SA) games finishing with under 1.5 total match goals. Furthermore, four of the last six SA H2Hs at this venue have finished in the same manner. Games involving them have often been slow starters too, with three of Udinese’s five SA games this season witnessing a goalless first half. The hosts themselves are guilty, failing to bag a first-half goal in four of those five. Additionally, Udinese have kept eight first-half clean sheets in their last ten SA home H2Hs, with six remaining goalless at the break.
Just like their hosts, Bologna’s quick start to the league season has hit a road-block. After drawing a blank in their recent SA match for the first time since mid-April, Bologna will hope to revive their scoring form, which landed them 24 goals in ten SA games prior. Bologna’s games are guilty of slower starts as well, with eight of their last 15 SA fixtures remaining goalless at the break. Furthermore, the visitors have been leading at half-time in just one of these matches, and on the road, the last time Bologna led at the break was back in March.
