Lazio will host Udinese at the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday as they look to continue their charge of European football for next season.
Lazio are eight in the Serie A table, and they are in a tight race for European places. Simone Inzaghi’s side is 3 points below the last Europa League spot, and 6 points below the previous Champions League spot. The likes of Torino and Sampdoria are also battling with them, so points are crucial at this stage of the season.
Milan defeated them in their last Serie A match, as they won 1-0 courtesy of a penalty from Franck Kessie. The game was marred by controversy, but it was a dent to Lazio’s European hopes. Lazio are winless in their last three games, losing two of them. They have dropped points against Sassuolo and SPAL, which were games they should have won on paper.
Ciro Immobile has shouldered the majority of the scoring burden for Lazio, and he has scored 14 goals this season in the league. After him, three players are tied on four goals, which is not a good thing for the club. Felipe Caicedo, Senad Lulic, and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic have all scored four goals apiece.
Udinese are also playing for something, and that is to avoid relegation. They are 16th in the table, just 4 points clear of the relegation zone. Empoli could string together a run of results which would push Udinese into danger. A 3-2 win over Empoli a week ago gave them breathing space, as they look to stretch the gap even further.
Roma beat Udinese 1-0 on Saturday, as Edin Dzeko got the solitary goal. Udinese gave a poor account of themselves, and such a performance will not do against Lazio. They have lost two, won two and drawn one out of their last five league games, and some consistency is needed for coach Igor Tudor.
Rodrigo de Paul has been a shining light for them, and he has nine goals and four assists so far in the league. Kevin Lasagna has also chipped in, and both of them will be crucial for Tudor. Their away record is poor though, and Udinese have failed to win any of their last 12 away games. Tudor will be hoping that this changes in Rome on Tuesday.
Lazio vs Udinese Betting Tips
Lazio prevailed when these two sides met earlier in the season, winning 2-1. The head to head record is in favour of Lazio, who have the last five meetings in the league. Udinese have claimed just a point from their previous six away games, which is good news for Lazio.
Lazio should win the game, and keep their hopes of European football next season alive. Udinese should keep it tight, but the home side will clinch the three points. Expect the total goals in the game to be less than 2.5.
