A look at the rich statistics of Udinese and Genoa shows that both teams are having a difficult season, with Udinese's form being particularly worrying. In the last six matches, Udinese have not been able to win a single victory, experiencing difficulties in attack and weak defense, as evidenced by two goals scored and ten conceded. Genoa, although playing a little better, still managed to score eight times in six matches. The workloads of both teams have been relatively equal lately, which eliminates the influence of unfair fatigue on the course of the match.
When it comes to the tournament stage, every game is crucial. Both teams need to climb up the ladder to avoid relegation, making this an important meeting. Historically, both teams combine well together, but Udinese may have an advantage playing at home. Previous matches, as a rule, were low-scoring, and the last three draws highlight the balance of the teams' strengths.
Looking at the additional metrics, Udinese struggles with both possession and shots on goal, which may explain their goal drought. Genoa, despite having less possession in some matches, were more effective. The teams have entered matches with varying goal counts, but half of the last six meetings have seen more than 2.5 goals scored in both matches.
Event: Match outcome
Bid: Draw, CF 3. 15
Why: Both teams are in poor form: Udinese has difficulty scoring, while Genoa is a little better in attack. Historical data also speaks in favor of a draw: three of the last five meetings between the teams ended in a draw. Both teams are equally in need of points and will likely play cautiously to avoid turnovers, further increasing the chances of a draw.
Event: Total goals
Bid: Total goals under 2.5, EF 1. 63
Why: Considering the latest results of Udinese and Genoa, as well as their past meetings, it is highly likely that the match will be low-scoring. Udinese's obvious problems with shots on target, as well as Genoa's mediocre goalscoring record, suggest that the match will feature fewer goals.
Given the teams' recent form and historical data, a match with a total of under 2.5 goals seems most likely, combining reasonable risk with attractive odds. Both teams' offensive struggles support this prediction, providing an opportunity for a calculated and justifiable bet.
Event: Both teams will score
Bid: Both teams will score - Yes, CF 2. 00
Why: Despite Udinese's poor scoring form, home advantage could give the team an attacking boost. Genoa have been scoring more and more often lately, so a medium-risk bet is quite justified.
Event: Total corners
Bid: Total corners over 9.5, CF 1. 80
Why: As both teams look to break their lackluster streaks, an aggressive approach could lead to more corners. There have been a large number of corners recorded in past matches between both teams, making this a potentially lucrative high-risk bet.
