Roma vs Udinese
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 13 April 2019
Kick-Off 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Roma managed a huge 0-1 victory away at top-half rivals Sampdoria last weekend to get back in contention for the top-four finish in Serie A. They took the most of Milan’s negative streak of results to cut the gap behind fourth-placed Rossoneri down to just one point heading into final seven rounds of the competition.
Nevertheless, the Romans have quite a complicated schedule with fixtures against the likes of Inter and Juventus upcoming. They don’t want a slip-up on Saturday evening against bottom-half Udinese, but clinching a three-pointer will require a string performance here knowing the visitors head into the clash in high spirits.
Le Zebrette enjoyed a superb attacking form of late. They bagged six goals during a streak of two wins and a draw in last three league outings. Igor Tudor’s men held Milan to a 1-1 draw away at Stadio San Siro along the way.
Roma vs Udinese: Head-to-head
The head to head record completely speaks in Roma’s favour.
The hosts won ten and lost one of past eleven meetings with Le Zebrette.
The lone defeat, interestingly, came just in this term of Serie A when Udinese celebrated a 1-0 victory at their Dacia Arena.
Roma vs Udinese: Prediction
Igor Tudor has a strong attacking potential with the likes of Kevin Lasagna and Rodrigo de Paul leading the line. This duo regularly produced goals of late and we would not be shocked to see one of them pack a goal on Saturday at Stadio Olimpico.
Roma played attacking-minded football throughout the entire season and the arrival of Claudio Ranieri did not chance things either. We thus have reasons to expect goals when these two likes come across each other in an important affair in Italian capital.
The home win & Both teams to score looked great at 3.00, while you won’t make a mistake backing the Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.66.
