Uncover Exclusive Picks & Predictions From Our Experts.

Frosinone Have Never Previously Survived the Drop

After taking a 5-0 beating at Inter Milan’s hands, Frosinone delivered when it mattered most. In one of their best Serie A results of the season, Frosinone went on the road to Monza and came away with a 1-0 win. Walid Cheddira’s header was the game’s only goal, and it was his sixth goal since February. Frosinone are now in 16th place in Serie A, one point ahead of Udinese and two points clear of 18th-placed Empoli.

While their away record this season has left a lot to be desired, Frosinone are 7-4-7 at the Stadio Benito Stirpe. They’ll need to avoid defeat just one more time to ensure their Serie A survival. Frosinone have relied heavily on loan players this season and none have been more impactful than Matias Soule. The Argentine, on loan from Juventus, has scored 11 goals and provided three assists. However, he’s found the net just twice since the beginning of February.

Frosinone have failed to score in four of their last seven games and have conceded more goals than all but three teams in Serie A. Still, it would take a loss to Udinese and Empoli to defeat Roma for Frosinone to go straight back down to Serie B. Bettors should note that Frosinone have never managed to stay in Serie A for consecutive seasons. While goalkeeper Stefano Turati and defender Anthony Oyono are out injured, midfielder Luca Mazzitelli is listed as questionable.

Udinese Performing Better Away From Home

There are a few possible scenarios for Udinese, who are in 17th place in the Serie A table, on Sunday. If they lose and Empoli lose to Roma, Udinese will stay in Serie A, where they’ve been for the entire 21st century. A loss and Empoli draw will force a one game relegation play-off between Udinese and Empoli. A draw and Empoli loss or draw will also ensure survival, as well as an Udinese victory.

Udinese were minutes away from languishing in the relegation zone last weekend but earned a penalty in the 11th minute of stoppage time. Lazar Samardzic converted the spotkick as Udinese drew vs. Empoli 1-1. Bizarrely, four of Udinese’s five wins this season have come away from home. While they’re 1-11-7 at home this season, Udinese have posted a 4-8-6 record on the road.

While they rank 19th in the home table this season, Udinese are 12th based on road form. Bettors should note that Udinese are unbeaten in their last four matches and three of those have finished in 1-1 draws. Fabio Cannavaro was appointed on April 22nd and the former Ballon d’Or winner is a win away from steering Udinese to safety. Midfielder Sandi Lovric has missed the last six games with an injury and so has Florian Thauvin.

Frosinone vs Udinese Match Analysis & Odds

While this isn’t one of the most covered matches on the soccer world schedule, this is as important as it gets for both sides. Frosinone would be ecstatic with a win (+140) or draw (+225). Udinese cannot depend on AS Roma to get a result vs Empoli as the Giallorossi are locked into sixth place.

So, Udinese will be looking to grab all three points here to ensure survival. The Frosinone vs. Udinese odds price the visitors at +210 odds to do so. The Friulani have picked up four points in their last two road matches and defeated Lecce 2-0 last time out. Samardzic has scored in back-to-back games and Lorenzo Lucca has been on the scoresheet eight times this season for Udinese.

While Frosinone pk, -0.5 sits at -110 odds, Udinese pk, +0.5 comes in at -130. Udinese have avoided defeat on the road more often than not and they’ve played well in recent weeks with their backs against the wall. Neither team tends to light up the scoreboard often, so it makes sense that under 2.5 goals show -120 odds. While this one probably won’t have the most entertaining football of the weekend, it could be a dogfight as the stakes are ridiculously high.
