Udinese vs Lazio
Italian Serie A
Date: 21 May 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Dacia Arena (Udine).
Udinese host Lazio in the last match of Sunday’s Serie A schedule at Dacia Arena in Gameweek No 36.
The match has a much bigger importance for the visitors who desperately want to arrest the current slump in form and keep the safe distance to AC Milan in the battle for the top-four finish.
I Biancocelesti dropped to fourth position in the Serie A table after losing three of the last five league fixtures.
They continued the slide in form last Friday by barely avoiding a defeat in the home clash against relegation strugglers Lecce. It ended 2-2 at Stadio Olimpico only thanks to Sergej Milinkovic Savic who fired a super-late equalizer in the fourth minute of added time in the occasion.
Maurizio Sarri’s men are only four points above fifth-placed I Rossoneri and they can ill afford another slip-up if they want to avoid a late drama.
Udinese, on the other side, hold the 12th position in the Serie A standings at the moment. They are three points below the likes of Fiorentina, Monza, and Torino, meaning the top-half finish is well on the cards for Andrea Sottill and his troops.
La Zebrette lost the last weekend’s game against Fiorentina 2-0 at Stadio Artemio Franchi but we must underline their strong home form with three wins and two draws in the last five league games at Dacia Arena.
Udinese vs Lazio Head-to-head
- Each of the last four head to head encounters between these rivals ended in draws. Lazio did win the Coppa Italia tie only after an extra-time goal back in January last year.
- Udinese have won only 6 of the previous 29 home matches against I Biancocelesti.
- We saw three or more goals just once in the previous five H2H games between these two rivals.
Udinese vs Lazio Prediction
Udinese have lost only two games at home all season and they are on a phenomenal streak of three victories and two draws in the last five games at Dacia Arena. There is plenty to like about the home win or draw double chance bet at the 1.80 odds knowing also that Lazio have lost three of the previous five Serie A affairs.
Four of the last five H2H clashes between Udinese and Lazio ended with fewer than three goals scored. You can back the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the same 1.80 odds.
