It’s very difficult for Udinese to avoid a defeat as they’re having a trip to the club who is competing for a ticket to the European competition.
Asian Handicap : 0.94*1-1.5*0.87
Failure in the 6-point match against AC Milan last weekend put Lazio under more pressure for the battle for the Champions League ticket next season. Currently, the capital team has dropped to 8th position in the standings with 49 points, 6 points away from top 4 and they still have 1 more match to play.
Under the condition that there are 6 more rounds until the season is over, Lazio is not allowed to make any more mistakes if they want to attend the biggest European competition. Tonight’s match is a big opportunity to shorten the distance from the top teams as they will be facing Udinese, a team who is still worrying about relegation.
Obviously, Lazio’s attack is having problems as they scored only 2 goals in the last 3 games. The fans are hoping Ciro Immobile, the top scorer in the team, to shine again in this match. The 29-year-old striker has registered 14 goals and 4 assists after 29 appearances at Serie A.

Odds Over/Under: 0.95*2.5-3*0.95
Olimpico Stadium has always been a big advantage for Lazio. They have been unbeaten in their last 9/10 matches at home. And they are very much likely to extend the good results after tonight’s match. In the last 5 head-to-head matches against Udinese, victories all went for the capital team.
About the visitors, Udinese is having 32 points, only 4 points above the relegation group. They understand that their current position will be in danger if they don’t have at least 1 point in this match. De Paul is still the biggest hope for the team this season. The Argentine striker has had 9 goals and 4 assists from the beginning of the season. Udinese is showing relatively good performances, compared to other teams in the bottom half of the table. In the last 5 matches, they had 2 wins and 1 draw. But Udinese is not having a good record playing away matches as they were winless in the most 12 recent matches playing away from home, 8 of which were defeats.
It’s the weakness in the defense that caused them to lose many points. Taking advantage of that, Lazio may be able to have goals, even before the first half ends. Immobile and Joaquin Correa are believed to cause Udinese’ defenders a lot of problems, and the visitors’ conceding goals should be the matter of time.
