Having picked up 19 points from their opening eight league matches this season, Udinese significantly slowed down prior to the domestic campaign pausing for the World Cup.

Five draws and two defeats saw them drop to eighth in the standings, although having failed to claim a top-half finish since the 2012-13 season, that still represents a hugely successful return at this stage of the campaign.

However, Andrea Sottil will be keen to ensure that his side’s early form does not go without being rewarded, with a home game against Empoli on Wednesday providing a good opportunity to start 2023 by returning to winning ways.

Meanwhile, Empoli managed to move 10 points clear of the relegation zone prior to the break by winning two of their last three matches.

Their 2-0 victory against 18th-placed Cremonese was indeed a crucial win, with goals from Nicolo Cambiaghi and Fabiano Parisi in the second half ensuring that Empoli head into the New Year with real breating space in their favour.

However, Paolo Zanetti will be aware of how quickly the tide can turn against him, having been sacked by Venezia earlier this year despite ending their 19-year exile from Serie A by guiding them to promotion from Serie B.

Udinese vs. Empoli Head to head

In the previous 25 encounters between these two teams, Udinese have claimed 11 victories while Empoli have won seven, and they have drawn in seven. Empoli have scored 26 goals and conceded 34 in the process.

Udinese Team News

Udinese will remain without Adam Masina, who may not feature again this season due to an anterior cruciate ligament rupture, while Gerard Deulofeu is a doubt due to a foot injury.

Should the former Watford forward be deemed unavailable, Isaac Success could replace him in attack.

Empoli Team News

Empoli may have to make do without a key forward themselves, with Mattia Destro struggling with a calf issue.

Head coach Zanetti may opt to name the same starting XI who dispatched off Cremonese in their last game prior to the World Cup.
