Udinese vs AS Roma
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK/15:00 CET
Venue: Dacia Arena (Udine).
Two teams with a lot of pride in their past will meet at Udine on Saturday. The hosts desperately need a win and the visitors are aiming for continuing their winning run.
The Little Zebras are without a win in their previous 7 league matches and 6 of those had been defeats. Over 2.5 goals came in 5 of those matches as well. In front of their home crowd, Udinese is currently on a 4 game losing streak.
The team from Udine are 17th in the table. With 7 defeats in their 12 matches, they are just above the relegation zone. They are equal on points with relegation placed Empoli. This performance was not foreseen by their fans for sure. A win is necessary for not going into the elimination spot.
Coach Davide Nicola has to rethink his strategies and make sure his team stays strong at the back. His side has already conceded 18 goals this season; a stat which does not symbolize a top Italian club who happens to be the second oldest club in Italy.
The visitors are in a 5 match winless streak in all competitions. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those games in which the last 2 were victories. After a surprise defeat to Spal in Round-9 made the team realize their mistakes and came back strongly.
The “Magic One”is 6th in the Seria A table with 5 wins and 3 defeats. They have scored 22 goals and conceded only 15 in return. In away matches recently they have not lost 4 matches. Their last defeat in the league in an away fixture was against Bologna with the final score reading 2-0.
At first, the visitors are more likely to win this game on Saturday. But since the hosts are really in need for 3 points we can expect a spirited performance from Udinese.

Udinese vs AS Roma: Prediction
Roma is on a 4 match unbeaten streak in the away fixtures they played in both the league and UCL. On the contrary, the hosts have lost all 4 of their recent home games. So we can bet on the Yellow and Red to win with 1.83 odd.
Under 2.5 goals came in the last 5 matches at this ground. But 5 of their recent h2h games saw the opposite to this trend. With Roma scoring freely, we can expect a score of over 2.5 goals in this upcoming match. Also, the hosts are conceding at an alarming rate. Thus a bet can be placed on a score of over 2.5 goals with 1.80 odd.
