Lazio vs Udinese: prediction for the Serie A fixture
Lazio made several mistakes in the first founds, and at the moment they are 8th in the Serie A table with 21 points. Maurizio Sarri's charges are losing 10 points to the 4th Atalanta, but today they have a good chance to narrow that gap to 7 points.
The difficulty is that Lazio's direct opponents are Juventus, Roma, and Fiorentina. The competition for the Top-6 finish is extremely tight this year. In the last round, Lazio were crushed by Napoli (0:4), which was the Eagles' second defeat in a row.
Udinese are trying to stay away from the relegation zone, but they don't really have ambitious goals for the season. Right now, Le Zebrette are 14th in the table with 15 points from 14 games. They are 5 points above the 18th Genoa.
Luca Gotti's men won the opening game against Spezia (1:0), but then went on a winless streak of 8 games, until they defeated Sassuolo (3:2). In the last two rounds, Udinese lost to Torino (1:2) and drew with Genoa (0:0).
In the last 14 games between the clubs in Rome, this score was recorded 3 times.
In 3 of the last 4 games between the clubs at Olimpico, this bet played.
Udinese scored in the second half in 2 of their last 3 games.
Lazio had a string of unsuccessful games, and as a result, they are 10 points behind the Champions League zone. The Eagles need a victory in the upcoming match. Udinese are in poor form and probably won't be able to put up a fight.

Lazio are desperate for a win and will strive to collect maximum points in this fixture. The Eagles have a class advantage and look solid in general, they can record a confident victory over the struggling Udinese outfit.
