THE PREDICTION

This is a crunch battle in the bid to avoid the drop with Udinese just one point above Empoli. Udinese have taken four points from their last two games including a fine point at Milan in midweek while Empoli toppled second-placed Napoli. With so much at stake, a low-scoring affair is favoured.
