Spal have the worst away record in Serie A...

They had Nicholas Opoku sent off after 32 minutes of their clash with Atalanta on October 27 and ended up losing 7-1. That left them low on confidence and they slumped to a 4-0 defeat to in-form Roma in their subsequent match. However, they should be buoyed by that win against Genoa, and they could well secure another three points when they host Spal this weekend. Leonardo Semplici’s side have the worst away record in Serie A, with five defeats from five games and not a single goal scored in that time, so this should really result in victory for Udinese.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Opoku returned to the side for Udinese’s 3-1 win against Genoa and he should keep his place for this game. Star man Rodrigo de Paul scored the opener on Sunday and there were late goals from left winger Ken Sema and forward Kevin Lasagna, who came off the bench. Forward Ilija Nostorovski, signed on a free transfer from Palermo in the summer, is yet to score for Udinese, so club captain Lasagna could be in line for a start alongside Stefano Okaka against Spal. Scoring goals has been a real problem for Udinese this season, with just eight in 11 games, so their three-goal haul against Genoa should give them a timely boost.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&amp;a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d582dcf927b95968483da5f/original-10-bet-new-customer-welcome-bonus" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Spal are without two key players as Mohamed Fares and Federico Di Francesco are both injured at the moment. Marco D’Alessandro is also out, leaving them a little light in wide areas. Spal are also struggling in front of goal, but top scorer Andrea Petagna – who has three goals to his name this season – is injury free. They play with a back three of Francesco Vicari, Igor and Nenad Tomovic, and it will be up to de Paul to unlock that defence.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>This is unlikely to be an open and entertaining game. Spal have only scored seven goals this season and they all came at home, so they are unlikely to trouble Udinese unduly. The hosts have only scored four times in six home games, so under 2.5 goals might appeal at 1.75 (3/4) with Unibet. Udinese have won three of their six home matches, whereas Spal have lost all of their away games, so Igor Tudor’s side should be able to secure victory in this match. They have a stronger midfield than Spal, and that could ultimately be the deciding factor in what should prove to be a tight contest.</p><p><strong>Tips: <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Unibet">Udinese to win at 2.20 (6/5) with Unibet; under 2.5 goals at 1.75 (3/4)</a>; <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Bet365">Udinese-draw double chance and under 3 goals at 2.05 (21/20) with Bet365</a></strong></p></div></div></div></div>
