Our football match prediction:
Stadio Olimpico will host Sunday’s football game between Lazio and Udinese. The Biancocelesti made it to the Coppa Italia semis and, on the other hand, they sit in sixth place in the Serie A standings ahead of Matchday 26. The capital club failed to win previous two home games in the national championship, but it has to be noted that they are after their ninth home victory of the season. Ciro Immobile scored the winner against Empoli at the weekend and we predict that the opposition defenders will have their work cut out for them when facing the former Torino man. The Zebrette suffered back-to-back defeats to the likes of Fiorentina and Sassuolo in last two league fixtures and, taking everything into account, they will have a big fish to fry in Sunday’s clash against Lazio. When the two teams met at Dacia Arena in the reverse fixture Simone Inzaghi’s men recorded a 3-0 win over Udinese.
