Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a splendid 5-1 win at Benevento, Lazio take on Udinese at their Stadio Olimpico on Matchday 12. The Biancocelesti are on a six-game winning run in the Serie ahead of Sunday’s football match and they have been impressive in front of goal of late. Ciro Immobile is having a season to remember and the Italian attacker, who found the net in the crushing of Benevento, is going to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. Lazio are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that they are going to beat Udinese at their Stadio Olimpico. The Zebrette did well to beat Atalanta in front of home fans at the weekend, but their performances on the road leave a lot to be desired and we believe that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. You should know that Udinese recorded their last win over Lazio in the Serie A back in 2014.
