Udinese vs Chelsea
International – Club Friendlies
Date: Friday, 29 July 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Dacia Arena.
Chelsea did have a great season the last time around and were even the European champions the season before that. But they really had a transfer window to forget in the last 2 months. They will be determined to make amends for that and Udinese, who are one of the weaker teams in the Italian top flight, seems like a perfect target for them this Friday.
The Blues had laid their eyes on several top signings, just for Barcelona to swoop in the last moment and snatch their targets away. They did secure a 3rd place finish in the English league the previous season but it seems that it will be an even bigger challenge this time around.
Both Manchester City and Liverpool have made heavy reinforcements to their team and to add even more worries, the likes of arsenal Manchester United, Tottenham etc look fiercely determined as well.
It goes without saying that it will not at all be easy for Thomas Tuchel’s men in the upcoming several months. They are under pressure to start their season on the right note.
Meanwhile, Udinese had secured a 12th place finish the last season in the Italian top flight and all through the campaign they had managed to deliver just 11 wins. All along they had struggled to keep clean sheets and they also faced immense difficulty in finding the back of the net consistently as well.
By the looks of things, it is expected that we are about to witness a convincing victory for Chelsea this weekend.
