Udinese can’t find a way out of the crisis: will the upcoming national team break be a band-aid for the wounds of Jaka Bijola and Sandi Lovrić?
Italian Serie A Udinese are going through anything but a good time at the moment, after their 0-0 draw away to Empoli on Friday night and remain without a win in Serie A after eight rounds played.
It is also undeniable that Udinese have problems scoring goals in particular, as the Black and Whites have only managed to score in three of their eight Serie A matches. Jaka Bijol played the whole match away in Tuscany, while Sandi Lovrić had to miss the game due to a red card he received in the previous round against Genoa.
The poor form of Udinese is particularly striking because Bijol, Lovric and others were third in the league standings after eight rounds last season, just one point behind leaders Napoli. It is clear that the team, which currently occupies a modest 17th place in the Serie A standings, we simply have to make a few changes, but at the same time the Slovenian national team selector can Matjaž Kek hopes that the poor club form will not affect Jako Bijola and Sandi Lovrić in the last two qualification cycles, when he will be Slovenian national team chasing her first major competition in 14 years and her second European Championship qualification since 2000.
