Ballardini 'can't explain' Udinese problems

Bologna boss Davide Ballardini doesn’t know why Udinese are so low down in the table, as the two prepare to meet on Saturday.

The Rossoblu host the Zebrette tomorrow, with Francesco Guidolin’s men in 15th place. The Renato Dell’Ara outfit’s Coach though, has insisted that his side can’t underestimate their opponents.

“I can’t explain to you why Udinese are in the position they are in,” he told a Press conference.

“They’ve proven this season and in the past that they are very good. It’s going to be tough for us, but we want to prove that we can compete and improve.

“However strong our desire may be to try and overwhelm Udinese, we can’t lose out compactness at the back.

“If we let them get in behind us, then we’re done for. Tomorrow we have to be a team and sacrifice ourselves from the first to the last minute.”
