Our prediction for this Serie A match:
After sharing the spoils with Lazio in the Derby della Capitale, AS Roma will look to return to winning ways in the Serie A when they face Udinese at their Stadio Olimpico. The Romans are eager to move closer to the Champions League berth and this seems like a good opportunity for them to get back on course in the Italian top flight. All Chris Smalling, Tammy Abraham, Marash Kumbulla, and Martin Vetkal remain on the sidelines with injuries, while fit-again midfielder Renato Sanches should be recalled to the starting XI.
The Zebrette, on the other hand, have recorded only one win in the new Serie A campaign and seeing that Jose Mourinho’s troops have turned Stadio Olimpico into a real fortress, we predict that the visitors are going to return to Udine empty-handed. All Festy Ebosele, Enzo Ebosse, Brenner, Gerard Deulofeu, and Kingsley Ehizibue are out of contention with injuries for the visiting side.
