Roma v Udinese Preview

After a disappointing result in the first leg of the Europa League quarter finals, Roma will be hoping to continue their good form in the Serie A as they host Udinese on Saturday. The Europa League encounter against Feyenoord was rather a bad one for Jose Mourinho’s men, as they not only failed to convert the penalty, but also saw both of their star strikers Dybala and Abraham forced off with injuries. Roma currently sit third in the table, however, both the Milan clubs and Atalanta continue breathing down their necks in their pursuit of a top four finish. The 1-0 victory over Torino ended a six game wait for an away win for the hosts last time around. Jose Mourinho’s men have particularly had a good record at home, winning 9 of their 14 matches at Stadio Olimpico. They have won eight of their last nine league matches against Udinese at home, keeping four clean sheets and scoring two or more on seven occasions. Roma will be without their top two scorers Dybala and Abraham though sidelined due to injuries, with Belotti expected to come back in the lineup.

With nothing more to play for this season, Udinese’s primary motive will be to secure a top half finish for the first time in 10 years. Having won the reverse fixture 4-0 back in September, the Friulani will be hoping to do a league double over Roma for the first time since 1998 ahead of their trip to the capital. However, having won just two of their last nine away games, Andrea Sottil’s men look far from favorites entering this match. They have also failed to score in four of their last seven matches away from the Dacia Arena; and with the defensive form of Jose’s men, it’ll be a daunting task for the Friulani as they rely on the services of their top scorer Beto Bercique yet again.
