Roma vs Udinese
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 14 February 2021
Kick-Off at 11.30 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome.
Roma will be hoping to rebound from a 2-0 loss at Juventus on Sunday morning when they host mid-table Udinese in the first Serie A game of the day. La Lupa dell to the fourth place in the league standings after the loss in Turin. They did not offer any treat against the defending champions on the occasion. Such a dreadful performance was by no means surprising considering the tough situation in the team’s dressing room.
Roma’s former captain and best scorer Edin Dzeko was suspended after a fight with the head coach Paulo Fonseca. The Bosnian talisman returned to the first team and came on as a substitute in the mentioned defeat to Juventus. It will be interesting to see whether he will feature this important tie with Udinese. La Lupa can ill afford a slip-up here being lock on 40 points with bitter rivals Lazio at the fourth position of the Serie A standings.
Roma vs Udinese Head-to-head
- Roma lead the head to head tie by 15 victories ahead of their 58th encounter with Le Zebrette.
- La Lupa won three of the last four clashes against Udinese without conceding a goal at all in these wins.
- The streak includes this term’s 0-1 victory for the Romans in early-October at Dacia Arena.
Roma vs Udinese Prediction
Udinese have been struggling for consistency throughout the entire season, but they seem to have managed to find the right form at the start of the year. They escaped the relegation scrap on the back of a strong run of two wins and draws apiece in the last four league rounds.
Le Zebrette conceded just one goal during the streak even though they’ve played the likes of Atalanta, Inter, Spezia, and Verona in the process.
Since Roma failed to score in two of the last four Serie A outings, we don‘t quite expect a goal fest on Sunday. The visitors will likely sit tight at the back and we doubt the Romans will find the way to break them down with ease.
The Under 2.5 goals FT thus looks like a great pick at the 2.00 odds. We still believe the hosts will steal the much-needed win at the death. The home win is paid at the 1.72 odds.
