2012 UEFA Europa League: Udinese vs Atletico Madrid
Italian Serie A club Udinese and Spanish La Liga club Atletico Madrid are currently both on the winning track for their UEFA Europa League campaign. Both have booked wins in their recent outings and share the topspot of Group I with Atletico Madrid slightly edging with a 1 goal difference. Of course, that might all change drastically when the top 2 of Group I clash on October 20, 2011, at the home pitch of Udinese in Udine, Italy.
As UEFA Europa League champions in the 2009-2010 season and 2010 UEFA Super Cup champions, Atletico Madrid can certainly be considered a big favorite. And while the transfer of Diego Forlan and Sergio Aguero at the start of the season may have crippled the roster that delivered those prize trophies, manager Gregorio Manzano is still optimistic and trusts that the likes of Radamel Falcao and Diego are capable threats.
Udinese is enjoying its success in the early stages of the Italian Serie A season, and sit at 2nd place just behind Juventus. Udinese has booked 2 wins and 2 draws in the Italian Serie A, and their Europa League campaign jumpstarted rather well with a 2-1 win over Rennes. Udinese captain Antonio Di Natale is proving his scoring prowess. And Udinese will need him to deliver again to book an important win.
