Udinese – Lazio
Udinese welcomes Lazio in a match from the 31th round of the Italian Serie A. Let’s see what’s going on with these two teams at the moment.
Udinese are not really enjoyng an impressive season. They are currently 13th in the Serie A standings with 33 points won so far. They have a record of 10 wins, 3 draws and 17 defeats since the beginning of the campaign.
In their last five games Udinese are terrible – they have lost five consecutive times. Against Lazio they will try to end this negative run of results, but it won’t be an easy task.
Lazio are playing for the win here. They are 5th in the Serie A standings with 57 points, but in same time they are just two points behind the 4th Inter and the Champions League zone. Simone Inzaghi and his players know what the big goal is – moving back to the Top 4 and qualify for the Champions League.
Right now Lazio have a record of 17 wins, 6 draws and 7 defeats in the league. In their last five games Lazio won twice, made two draws and suffered one defeat. Before crushing Benevento with 6-2 at home, Lazio were in a run of three consecutive games without a win. This is the reason why they lost the 4th place to Inter.
But nothing is over just yet for Lazio. There are enough matches until the end of the season to return to the Top 4. In order to do this, Lazio must win games like this one.
For Udinese we can’t say anything significant. They are having an average season and most probably they will finish in the second part of the table. They will try to do better next season, that’s for sure. And now they will have a tough test against Lazio.
