Next Match: at home to Udinese, December 21
Livorno are in desperate need of points heading into Saturday's match against Udinese. Last weekend's 2-0 defeat at Lazio was the Amaranto's fourth loss in their last five league games and piled further pressure on coach Davide Nicola. Livorno are 18th in the standings, one point behind Sassuolo, who hold the last safety position. "I believe in my team," Nicola said. "We are not giving up. Our aim is to defend our Serie A status and we will fight until the end to achieve this."
