      Lazio vs Udinese Predictions

      In 2014/15, Coppa Italia success was part of a general story of domestic football success for Lazio. 2015/16 has been very different so far as the Rome-based outfit have failed to win a game in Italian football since October. Some mediating success in the Europa League is interspersed into that barren stretch, but the story is a glum one for an ambitious side that has fallen into the bottom half of the Serie A table.

      Success in the Coppa Italia could prove to be a spark for this team. They’ve managed to get a decent draw, playing Udinese at home, though it’s worth noting that when the two teams met in Rome in Serie A action on September 25, it was Udinese who stole a 1-0 victory. Given Lazio’s struggles, they are probably undeserving of their heavy favourites tag.

      Udinese have suffered back-to-back heavy defeats to Fiorentina and Inter Milan losing 3-0 and 4-0. However, Lazio’s poor form combined with the earlier game between the two teams this season ought to offer them a source of confidence overall.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Fatigued Lazio

      This squad isn’t the deepest and they’ve been playing a lot of tiring football in all competitions. It’s hard to believe that Serie A won’t be the club’s immediate priority and that might just take the edge off this game.

      2. Udinese due a better performance

      Before losing their last two games by a combined 7-0, Udinese had shown signs of being a so-so mid-table Italian Serie A side. We’ll gamble that they at least produce that sort of form again here.

      3. Lazio can’t get over the hump

      There’s something seriously up with this team right now, perhaps they figure it out, but it won’t be easy in a pressure knockout game and against a team that has recently enjoyed success at this venue.
