Udinese vs Liverpool Preview:
On the 6th of December Udinese welcomes Liverpool at the Stadio Communale Friuli in Udine. The Reds are in need of three points in Italy to achieve Europa League knockout stages. The Italian hosts probably are eliminated from the Europa League, but they could show great football at home stadium.
Two teams progress from each Europa League group. Liverpool is currently second with seven points and Young Boys also have seven points. They play at home to Anzhi who has ten points. Udinese have to win this game, and hope Young Boys can bat Anzhi to be in contention. So, three teams can end up with ten points, or three teams can end up with seven points. If this ends up with no clear winner, than the goal difference between these teams is counting.
Udinese goes nine in the Srerie A with nineteen points. In the last match they won Cagliari with the score 4-1 at home. In the Europa League they have lost to Young Boys with the score 2-3 at home and drawn with Anzhi 1-1. So, Italians have four points after five rounds and stand on the last fourth place.
Liverpool stands eleven in the EPL with nineteen points. Liverpool won Southampton 1-0 this weekend. In the Europa League they are second with seven points, after 1-0 loss in the away game to Anzhi and a great victory over Young Boys with the score 3-5 in Bern. Liverpool slowly is trying to improve their game form. Liverpool will try to take advantage.
Both teams won this weekend. Udinese have won two, drawn three and lost one from their last six home games. Liverpool have one win, three draws and two defeats far from home from their last six matches.
Brendan Rodgers has rotated his start-squad in previous Europa League matches. Andre Wisdom, Jamie Carragher, Stewart Downing, Jordan Henderson, Jonjo Shelvey and Oussama Assaidi played in Group A games this season. Luis Suarez is suspended for the Sunday’s Premier League clash against West Ham, so he is expected to be in the start squad. Forward Fabio Borini and defender Martin Kelly are still unavailable via injuries.
Udinese will play without Dusan Basta, Maurizio Domizzi and Mehdi Benatia. They all are out of the game through injury. Willians is suspended, Andrea Lazzari and Giampiero Pinzi are recovering from injuries.
