  • Udinese have played more matches over 2,5 goals away than home.

These are busy days for the home team, as they were in action only four days ago in the Serie A. That game was an away game at Parma, so at least Cagliari are thankful to return home in this one. Game on!

It's quite the trip for Udinese when visiting Cagliari as the cities are 1000 kilometers apart.
