Lazio vs Udinese

Udinese are unbeaten in their last seven league games but face a Lazio side who are scoring for fun.

Lazio have beaten SPAL 5-2 and Chievo 5-1 since the start of the new year.

They have taken advantage of the draw between Inter and Roma to settle into third spot. They will be looking to stay there.

Ciro Immboile, the league's leading scorer, was substituted off in the Chievo win and he should be more rested for this home match.

Simone Inzaghi's men have won 25 and lost 12 of the previous 47 head-to-head encounters, but it is the most recent stretch that they have been more dominant, winning five and drawing one of the last six meetings.

Udinese have not scored a single goal in last five matches against Lazio, but their form under Massimo Oddo is crisp. They haven't lost in their last five away matches, winning four of them.

They have also struck 10 goals in that stretch, three of which came in a 3-1 win at Inter Milan.

Prediction: Lazio 3-2 Udinese


Match Stats:

  • Lazio 3-0 Udinese
  • Shots: 11-7
  • Possession: 45%-55%
  • Corner kicks: 3-6

Free-scoring Lazio produced another impressive attacking display to brush aside Udinese 3-0 on Wednesday and close the gap on Serie A leading pair Napoli and Juventus.

An unlucky own goal by Samir in the first half followed by one each from Nani and Felipe Anderson after the break ended Udinese's seven-match unbeaten league run and took Lazio's goal tally to 56 from 21 league games.

Lazio moved up to 46 points, seven behind Juventus with leaders Napoli a further point ahead.
