Udinese Calcio will host Lazio Roma on matchday 28 of Serie A. The hosts are in the midfield of Serie A and want to upset the favorites from the capital. This is not impossible, because Lazio Rome is currently not playing very consistently and also has the game in the Champions League against Bayern in the bones.
Before the match Udinese against Lazio Rome, the odds of the best bookmakers show a favorite role for the guests, but this is not very clear. The tenth-placed team can definitely be expected to do something, especially since the hosts don’t have that much pressure. The match at the Stadio Friuli will kick off at 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.
Prediction & Live Odds for Udinese vs. Lazio 21/03/2021
The guests from the capital go into this match as favorites, but have shown rather mixed performances in recent weeks. The Laziali have lost four away games in a row, and now they want to break this negative streak at the Stadio Friuli. However, Udinese is not in bad shape, so Lazio Rome will have a tough task ahead of them.
Prediction: UNDER 2.5 Goals ✅
It is difficult to predict the outcome of the match. Due to the omens before the match Udinese vs. Lazio Rome, our tip is that a total of less than 2.5 goals will be scored.
Udinese – Statistics & Current Form
Udinese’s season has been anything but bad so far. Coach Luca Gotti’s team quickly wanted to break away from the relegation places, and the team achieved this goal. Currently, the host is in tenth place in the Serie A table, but opponents Lazio Roma are already 13 points away.
Last weekend Udinese played 1-1 in Genoa, the current form is very good. For five games in a row, the team has now remained unbeaten in Serie A, picking up a strong nine points. Therefore, before the match Udinese against Lazio Rome, the betting odds also show that Udinese goes into this game as an outsider, but has real chances.
At home in the Stadio Friuli, Udinese shows good performances this season. Here, the Gotti eleven has conceded only twelve goals in 13 games and has also claimed five of the eight wins at home this season. Udinese lost only narrowly at home to Milan, Atalanta managed to wrest a point from them, and the same applies to Inter.
Udinese: The defense has stabilized
Udinese does not stand for spectacle this season. 30 goals means the fourth worst value in Serie A. However, 35 goals conceded is not a bad record either. In recent weeks, the defense has generally been very stable. The number of goals conceded in the last five league games speaks for itself; Udinese is very compact and difficult to break down.
These statistics ensure that before the match Udinese vs Lazio Roma our prediction is that in this match will be less than 2.5 goals. The bookmaker Betsson, tested by Wettbasis, offers odds of 1.75 for a bet on this.
Many Serie A statistics confirm the table. Udinese is not particularly overperforming, but would not have to be significantly higher. Only four teams have hit the aluminum more often, while the team is only in 13th place for its own corner kicks. Nevertheless, Udinese is especially strong on the head, with eight headed goals representing the third-best value in Italy’s top division.
Udinese’s expected lineup: Musso – Becao, de Maio, Nuytinck – Molina, de Paul, Arslan, Walacer, Stryger Larseen – Pereyra, Nestorovski
Lazio Roma – Statistics & Current Form
Lazio Roma are in seventh place, just a few places ahead of Udinese in the table, but a 13-point gap and a game of catch-up football still in hand highlight the differences between the two teams. The visitors from the capital, however, have recently suffered one or two setbacks.
This was also the case during the week in the match against FC Bayern, which was lost with 1:2. Lazio is therefore eliminated from the Champions League and can now focus within the league to play internationally again next season. Anyway, ahead of the Udinese vs Lazio Roma match, the odds show that the visitors are slightly favored in this match. Bookmaker we partner with offer odds of 2.15 for an away win.
The game of coach Simone Inzaghi’s team is largely dependent on physical presence. There is hardly a team in the league that hits more crosses; only Inter receives more crosses. Ciro Immobile, with 14 goals so far this season, is naturally a suitable target player, but the same applies to the powerful Muriqi and Caicedo.
Lazio Rome wants to take a step forward
Lazio Roma’s very good phase from January and early February is over. In the last five games in Serie A, there have been three defeats for the Laziali, all away from home. Ahead of the match in Udine, this is definitely something that worries coach Inzaghi. Especially since during the week, as we all know, they lost their fourth away game in a row.
The statistics for the season as a whole, meanwhile, give Lazio Roma a very good seventh place. The team scores the eighth most goals, gives up the eighth most shots, has the sixth most possession. This team rarely excels, and much depends on its form on the day.
After some wild games recently, Inzaghi will want his team to be well balanced. In connection with the recently good defense of the hosts, our tip before the match Udinese against Lazio Rome is that less than 2.5 goals will fall. More tips on Serie A can be found on betting basis.
Predicted Lazio Roma lineup: Reina – Musacchio, Patric, Radu – Lazzari, Lucas, Milinkovic-Savic, Marusic, Luis Alberto – Correa, Immobile
