Roma vs Udinese Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for Italian Serie A match on Thursday, 2 July 2020. Kick off 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET at the Stadio Olimpico, Rome.
La Lupa are currently placed fifth in the table, and they have an opportunity to give themselves a good push in going after the final Champions League spot, as well as further improve their buffer of points over the sixth-placed Napoli.
Moreover, the latter are taking on the in-form Atalanta this Thursday, while Paulo Fonseca’s men are pitted against the struggling Friulians. And on top of that, Luca Gotti’s men have a massively inferior h2h record against this opponent.
Roma vs Udinese: Head-to-head (h2h)
- La Lupa won 12 of the previous 13 encounters.
- The reverse fixture had also ended in a 0-4 win for them.
- They had also kept clean sheets in five of the former seven clashes.
- At this venue, the hosts won ten of the preceding eleven meetings.
- 12 of the former 14 match-ups at this stadium saw the visitors conceding two or more goals.
Roma vs Udinese: Prediction
La Lupa lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against AC Milan. The former were desperate for the three points, as they are targeting an entry into the top-four.
However, after defending well against AC Milan for a long time, they conceded a goal late in the 76th minute. The guests did try their best to slot in the equalizer, but an 89th minute penalty totally took them out of the fixture.
In the meantime, the Friulians lost 2-3 at home the past game week, against Atalanta. The guests were arguably the best team in the league, and right away in the 9th minute itself, they found the back of the net.
Later, though the hosts scored two goals, they could not stop Atalanta from scoring another two goals.
La Lupa are one of the best teams in the competition, and they are going after a Champions League spot. On the other hand, their counterparts are placed in the bottom tier of the table, and they are struggling to avoid the relegation cut-off.
Going on, the Friulians have also a terrible h2h record against this rival over the years, and their stats on the road this season have been unimpressive as well.
In fact, La Lupa had won 12 of the past 13 h2h clashes, and they had won 10 of the former 11 such games at this stadium. On top of that, they had also scored two or more goals in 12 of the previous 14 h2h games at this stadium.
Taking into account these observations, expect a winning performance from Roma this Thursday.
