Udinese vs Lazio – Prediction, and Match Preview
Udinese vs Lazio – For the visitors, who are desperately trying to stop their recent run of bad luck and maintain a safe distance from AC Milan in the race for a top-four finish, the match is of far more importance.
I Biancocelesti have dropped one spot to fourth place in the Serie A standings as a result of their recent three-game losing streak in league play.
Last Friday, they just avoided a loss at home against relegation-threatened Lecce, which represented a continuation of their recent bad slump.
Only Sergej Milinkovic Savic’s incredibly late equalizer in the fourth minute of extra time allowed it to end 2-2 at Stadio Olimpico.
The team of Maurizio Sarri is only four points ahead of I Rossoneri in fifth place, so they cannot afford to make another mistake if they want to escape a dramatic finish.
On the other hand, Udinese now sits in 12th place in the Serie A standings. The top-half finish for Andrea Sottill and his team is very likely given that they are three points behind teams like Fiorentina, Monza, and Torino.
La Zebrette fell to Fiorentina 2-0 last weekend at Stadio Artemio Franchi, but it’s important to note that they have a great home record with three victories and two draws in their previous five league contests at Dacia Arena.
Udinese vs Lazio – Betting Analysis
The last four head-to-head meetings between these rivals have all resulted in draws. In January of last year, Lazio did prevail in the Coppa Italia match but only thanks to an extra-time goal.
Only six of Udinese’s previous 29 home games against I Biancocelesti have resulted in victories. In the last five head-to-head contests between these two rivals, three goals or more were only scored once.
Udinese is on an incredible run of three wins and two draws in the last five games at Dacia Arena. They have only lost two games at home all season.
The home win or draw double chance bet at the 1.80 odds has a lot to recommend it, especially in light of the fact that Lazio has lost three of its last five Serie A games.
What are the best odds for this match?
Looking at the bookies’ prices in the 90 min. result market, putting your money on Udinese is best priced at 3.75, betting on a drawn result is 3.6 and taking a punt on the win for Lazio gets you 2.03. They are the best returns being offered as of now.
