PREVIEW & PREDICTION – Udinese vs AS Roma 17/02/2018

Saturday, from 14:00, Udinese will receive the AS Roma visit in a match for the 25th Serie A. The match will take place at the “Dacia Arena” stadium in Udine.

The duels against the newly-promoted Verona (1-0) and Benevento (5-2) were the perfect opportunity for AS Roma to recover after a dark period in which he recorded seven consecutive matches without victory. The last show in front of his supporters brought a real breakout among Di Francesco’s students, who managed to score no fewer than five goals in the “red lantern” Benevento. On top of that, Rome climbed to No. 4 in Serie A, is in cards to take the last podium finish at the end of the season and seems to have returned to the right moment, ahead of the UEFA Champions League finals against the usual Sahtior Donetk. On the other side, Udinese’s regression is full. After a flurry of five consecutive wins in the championship and could have hoped for European seats, the “friuli bianconeri” returned to their feet on the ground, the evidence stood for the mediocre course of the past, where they scored only one success in the previous six rounds Serie A.

In the last ten direct confrontations between the two bands, AS Roma was forced nine times, while a single duel ended in a tie.

Udinese’s last success in front of Rome dates back to November 2011, from a 2-0 on home ground.

In the previous six direct disputes we record an average of 3.5 goals / match.

Probable teams:

Udinese (3-5-2-): Bizzarri – Larsen, Danilo, Samir – Widmer, Barak, Behrami, Jankto, Zampano – Maxi Lopez, De Paul

AS Roma (4-2-3-1): Alisson – Florenzi, Manolas, Fazio, Kolarov – De Rossi, Pellegrini – Under, Nainggolan, El Shaarawy – Dzeko
