Lazio vs Udinese Prediction & Betting tips
This match between Lazio and Udinese was actually planned for February, but was unable to take place. Considering the many injuries at Lazio, it suited them very well then. Earlier this season, the Romans won 1-2 in Udine, can it again take important points in the battle for fourth place?
Lazio seems to have given away the chances for the Champions League in the past three games. First, SPAL lost 1-0 after Sergej Milinkovic-Savic caused a penalty, then it was no more than 2-2 against Sassuolo in-house. For a moment, Lazio did not seem to have anything to do with that match when it fell behind in the 89th minute.
These two lesser matches could be made up in one fell swoop, because Lazio had to go to Milan last Saturday for the game against number four AC Milan. With a win it would be on the same level as the Milanese with a catch-up game to go. It turned out to be unfavorable for I Biancocelesti. In the first half the Romans were closest to a goal, Ciro Immobile hit the post in the 44th minute. The second half started with a setback, Joaquin Correa dropped out with a foot injury. The decision was finally made ten minutes before time. First the referee gave Francesco Acerbi a penalty for the hands but the VAR corrected him. Two minutes later, the Rossoneri were awarded a penalty after the five minutes before that Riza Durmisi made a stupid foul. Kessie made the penalty on behalf of Milan and thus put his team in fourth place. For Lazio, this meant the 28th consecutive visit to San Siro in the Series A, with the last win for Lazio dating back to 1989.
Udinese took crucial points in the fight against relegation in recent weeks. In their own home, for example, they won 2-0 against Genoa and 3-2 against Empoli and a point was taken from AC Milan (1-1). Two players who stood out in this good series were Rodrigo de Paul and record purchase Rolando Mandragora. De Paul scored two early goals in the relegation cracker against Empoli. Mandragora made the winning just before half-time after he also took the 2-0 against Genoa.
Last weekend, a series of seven games came to an end in which Udinese scored. Udinese started off energetically at AS Roma in the opening phase. Rolando Mandragora was close to his third goal in two weeks with a hard shot, Kevin Lasana also had a big chance but just couldn’t find it. After a 0-0 final score, I Bianconeri again came up well in the second half, as Sebastien de Maio headed close to the post in the 56th minute. Eventually the goal was not for the Udine team and Roman Edin Dzeko was deadly in the completion, he scored the only goal of the game.
