Lazio to bounce back from double defeats

After finishing sixth last season, Lazio’s goal is to finish top five. However, two back-to-back defeats to nil saw the Biancocelesti slip out of the European places to seventh position. Notably, after trailing at halftime in those two games, Lazio have now lost the first half of all five of their defeats in Serie A. 

Nevertheless, Lazio have a very strong record at the Olimpico. In fact, Biancocelesti’s defeat to Juventus at the Olimpico was their only one in 2021. Other than that defeat, Lazio won 16 games and drew two. This season though, Sarri needs to work on his defense as they let 25 goals in 14 matches. But Lazio’s defense excels at the Olimpico since they allowed just three goals in their last five home games and had three clean sheets in the process.

Udinese must have a better offensive mindset

Despite enjoying their 27th season at Serie A, Udinese need to work harder this season to guarantee another term at the top flight. To explain, the Bianconerri have a 21% win rate this season ( W3, D6, L5). Moreover, they are just five points above the relegation zone. Hence if Udinese don’t want this season to be a battle at the relegation end, they must start winning.

To do that, Luca Gotti’s team need to score more goals, something they have done on 16 occasions this season. In effect, with an average of one goal per game on the road, Udinese’s expectations in the Olimpico will be quite low. Markedly, Udinese scored one goal in their last two games. And that goal was their only one from a direct free kick since in five years!

Lazio vs Udinese Prediction

With Lazio’s form at the Olimpico, it is no surprise that they are the favorites to win this match.  And the bookies are paying a generous 1.67. However, a year ago Udinese were the underdogs again but won that match 3-1.

Surely, Sarri will put his players on high alert to avoid that result again. Moreover, Lazio know that a win here is needed to stay in touch with the top six. That win was Udinese’s only one in their last six visits to Rome having lost all previous five with four of them to nil.

In conclusion, we will back a home win for this match as it has a 71% chance according to the statistics. As for our second prediction, and since 71% of Lazio’s games saw over 2.5 goals this season, we will back that outcome.
