Lazio vs Udinese
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 29 November 2020
Kick-Off at 11.30 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome.
Lazio beat Zenit (3-1) on Tuesday and earned their fifth win in eight outings across competitions, which should have them in a great mood as they host Udinese on Sunday too. They sit six points behind Serie A table-toppers AC Milan and look to challenge the top 4, despite what’s been an unpredictable start of the new campaign.
Biancocelesti have been scoring goals lately and we’ve seen them score a total of 11 in their five November outings so far. They beat Crotone as they returned from the International break last week and Simone Inzaghi should have no trouble lifting their team spirits at this point.
Udinese, on the other hand, sit just outside the relegation zone and come into the match after a narrow Coppa Italia loss to Fiorentina (0-1), where Tofol Montiel found the net well into the extra time. They beat Genoa (1-0) at home ground beforehand but have had trouble performing on the road. Indeed, they’ve seen Verona (1-0) and Fiorentina (3-2) snatch all three points behind holding off Sassuolo in a goalless draw at MAPEI Stadium.
Lazio vs Udinese Head-to-head
Udinese held Lazio to a goalless draw in July, ending a streak of seven losses in head-to-head clashes.
Friulani failed to score a goal in any of their last three clashes against Lazio.
Lazio haven’t dropped home points against Udinese since 2014, regularly dominating the games and keeping clean sheets along the way.
Lazio vs Udinese Prediction
We will now back Lazio to keep it up and we are going for them to secure the points in a Home win to Nil, which looks like the best approach to the fixture. The visitors have struggled to score goals and this will be a major worry ahead of their trip to the Olimpico, which could see them dwelling in the bottom of the table.
Still, we see this as no smooth sailing and we rather expect a narrow contest in Rome. With that in mind, we’re also going for a low-scoring game and backing Under 2.5 Goals FT at 2.10. Lazio scored more than two goals just once this term and we don’t see them doing so now either.
