THE TEAM NEWS

UDINESE

  • Udinese went into their clash with Sampdoria on a three-match unbeaten run but they were unable to extend that as they conceded two late goals which saw them slip to a defeat and they face a tough task in their bid to respond to that.
  • Kevin Lasagna opened the scoring for Udinese but they could not see that out until half-time with Sampdoria levelling on the stroke of the break but that appeared to be the end of the scoring until the visitors added a second with just six minutes remaining.
  • Udinese thought they had equalised soon after only for VAR to rule it out and Sampdoria added a third as the hosts chased the game in stoppage time but Udinese did avoid any further injury issues and boast a healthy squad ahead of this contest.

LAZIO

  • Lazio’s season is unravelling at an alarming rate as they suffered a third straight defeat and if they needed confirmation that their title was over, it came as they lost against Sassuolo at the weekend.
  • Lazio took the lead just after the half-hour mark but Sassuolo were the better side and responded to level the scores just after the break and with the game heading for a stalemate, the visitors notched a winner in stoppage time.
  • It was another poor showing for Lazio and they will be desperate to put their poor run behind them as they travel to Udinese and while Joaquin Correa is likely to remain on the sidelines with a knee issue, Adam Marusic is pushing to make his return from a thigh strain.

THE PREDICTION

Lazio were right in the Serie A title hunt when the league restarted but their season has fallen apart with three consecutive losses which has seen them fall out of contention for top spot. They will be eager to end the season on a high with second place still achievable but they will have to end their losing streak sooner rather than later. Udinese lost for the first time in four matches in their defeat to Sampdoria but they can bounce back here by claiming at least a ppoint from this contest.
