Udinese vs Roma
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 3 October 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Dacia Arena, Udine.
Even though the recent draw against Juventus was a solid performance, AS Roma’s fans are quite worried about their team’s start in Serie A.
After bizarre administrative mistake, Roma have lost match to Hellas Verona by default 3-0 even though the game ended without a winner. Now they are looking for the first win of the season at Dacia Arena against Udinese.
The hosts have been struggling as well, so we are surely going to see two very motivated sides who wish to end the bad cycle. As expected, visitors are favorites for the win, currently priced at 1.61 odds.
Udinese vs Roma Head-to-head
Udinese and AS Roma have met 56 times in the past and previous stats are heavily going in favour of team from the capital. Roma were victorious in 30 encounters, Udinese in 16.
The Zebras completely shocked and surprised the opposition last season though at Olimpico, winning the match 2-0. That duel took place in early July this year.
If we ignore above mentioned loss, Roma were victorious against Udinese six times in a row as hosts. Situation is a little bit different when it comes to Dacia Arena though – Roma’s win rate here is exactly 50% throughout history.
Ten goals were scored in the last five meetings.
Udinese vs Roma Prediction
The opening two performances in Serie A should raise many alarms in Udine. The squad got defeated in both appearances, first on the road against Hellas Verona 0-1, while the follow up loss at home to Spezia was a true shock 0-2 FT.
Zebras are looking completely clueless on the pitch, so it might be time for manager Luca Gotti to make some significant changes. Both strikers Okaka and Lasagna are not even getting an opportunity to score so far.
Roma on the other hand looked just fine against the reigning Serie A champions. They had the lead in two occasions, but The Old Lady came back twice thanks to Ronaldo’s goals. Jordan Veretout was a bit silent in the previous campaign, but French midfielder opened this season with two goals.
Paulo Fonseca’s team definitely has the quality and we feel it’s time for their first win. Udinese are just looking too bad at this moment and they will hardly stop Dzeko, Mkhitaryan and co.
