Udinese is hosting Lazio at Dacia Arena in round 33 in Italian Serie A.
Udinese has been solid as of late, and thanks to that, Udinese has gotten away from the relegation zone a little bit. Udinese is in 15th place in the standings with 35 points, only 31 scored goals, and 46 conceded goals. In their last 6 games in Serie A, Udinese has 3 losses, 2 wins, and 1 draw, and they have lost only 1 of their last 4 games. In their last Serie A game against Sampdoria at home, Udinese was the weaker team with 47% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 10 corner kicks, and 82% of the correct passes. Udinese didn’t deserve to win this match, and they didn’t. the final result was 1-3. Lasagna has scored 10 goals for Udinese so far, while De Paul and Okaka both scored 6 goals. Fofana has added 7 assists for Udinese this season. Prodl and Mandragora are still injured and will not be playing in this match. Udinese has shown some promise in their last few games, and I believe they will stay in Serie A next season as well, but they need to improve their game and the quality of their roster because Udinese might not be lucky next season as they were this season.
With Juventus not winning their last two games in Serie A, Lazio had a fantastic chance to catch up to them and to possibly take over the first place soon, but Lazio pooped their pants in their last three games. Lazio is on a 3-game losing streak during which they conceded 7 goals while scoring only 2 goals. Lazio hasn’t been playing well since the restart and they have 4 losses and 2 wins in their last 6 games. Immobile is still the top goal scorer in Lazio and Serie A with 29 goals, but he is only 1 goal away from losing that place to Ronaldo who has only 1 goal less. Caicedo added 9 goals, while Correa added 7 goals. Luis Alberto has added 13 assists. Lulic, Marusic, and Correa are all injured, while Patric is suspended because of the red card. In their last Serie A game against Sassuolo at home, Lazio was weak with only 36% of ball possession, just 1 corner kick and 1 shot on goal, and low 79% of the correct passes. Lazio got what they deserved in this match, which is a 1-2 loss. The biggest problem for Lazio is that they don’t have anyone to replace Immobile, and when he is not playing well, neither is Lazio. Overall, Lazio is a good team and they still have a chance of getting closer to Juventus, but something to work on for next season is to sign some more good players, and of course, to keep the current leaders in this squad.
Udinese needs every point they can get, but Lazio will not get many more opportunities to get closer to Juventus. Lazio will face Juventus in the next round, and this is the time and the place for Lazio to win a game and to get back on the winning track if they want to have a chance of beating Juventus in the next round.
