Udinese vs Roma Predictions

Udinese remain dangerously close to the Serie A drop zone after following up a morale-boosting home victory against rock bottom Verona with defeat to relegation rivals Frosinone last time out. Currently four points clear of the bottom three, Udinese need some positive results and forward momentum if they are to avoid spending the last 10 games looking back over their shoulders at the chasing pack. On paper the Udinese squad is strong enough to be safely in mid-table but the team has underperformed this season and they are the joint-lowest scorers in the division, having only hit 24 goals in 28 league games. Top scorer Cyril Thereau has eight of those goals but has only found the net once in seven matches.

Roma’s exit from the Champions League was confirmed on Tuesday as they were beaten 2-0 by Real Madrid in the Spanish capital, sealing a 4-0 aggregate defeat, but their league form has been brilliant. A run of seven straight victories has left Luciano Spalletti’s men in prime position to take the third and final Champions League qualification place and they should be looking to extend their fine form at the Stadio Friuli this weekend. The return to fitness of Dutch midfielder Kevin Strootman comes at the perfect time for the run-in and he could make his first start of the season at Udinese. Roma have scored 15 goals in their last four league games and could pile up another big score on Sunday.

The visitors should be winning this match, with Udinese poor in front of goal and porous at the back. A raft of injury problems mean Spalletti will need to juggle his squad but he has enough talent in the ranks to come through this match comfortably. Backing Roma to win at 10/11 with bet365 looks the best bet for this game, while Roma to win 3-1 is a very attractive 14/1.
