Udinese - Form Analysis: Trying to improve with yet another coaching change

The "Zebras" have become accustomed to the struggle for survival in recent years. This season, however, has been tougher than usual, prompting the club to appoint a new coach. They chose the inexperienced but legendary former player, Fabio Cannavaro. He started with two 1-1 draws, against Bologna at home and Napoli away, followed by a long-awaited 2-0 victory at Lecce.

Empoli - Form Analysis: Only performing at home

The "Blues" have been unable to secure even a draw away from home since the beginning of spring, losing five consecutive away games without scoring a single goal. Davide Nicola's side's chances of survival hinge on their better home performances, where they have managed to win against Torino and Napoli, and draw with direct rivals Frosinone. In their last match, they lost 0-2 to Lazio in Rome.
