Roma receives the guests from Udinese in the last match of this 5th intermediate round in Serie A.
Roma, as we well know under the leadership of "Special" Mourinho, played on two fronts, after six consecutive victories, most of which very convincing, came the disappointment of the first loss of the season. However, to drive in a row, first in the final to enter the groups of the League of Conferences, with two successes was overcome the Turkish Trabzonspor - 2: 1 in the city of Trabzon and 3: 0 at home. Between these two games at the start of Serie A, Fiorentina beat 3: 1, then Salernitana as a guest with 4: 0 and two more successes of Olimpico - the very difficult 2: 1 over Sassuolo with a goal by El Sharaoui in 91- minute and this convincingly 5: 1 over our CSKA in the groups of the ELK tournament. Of course no one is insured against defeat, it happened in the city of Romeo and Juliet Verona with 2: 3 on Sunday, and today the "Wolves" will be looking for the beginning of another long series of victories. Spinazola is injured, and Vina's participation is in question.
Udinese without side commitments and without changes in the coaching staff in the face of Luca Gotti, started great with a draw in Turin against Juventus - 2: 2, then came two "pure" victories over Venice at home with 3: 0 and as guests with 1: 0 over Spice. So, a little unexpectedly on Monday, not so much as a loss, but as a digital expression, they crashed at their Stadium Dacia Arena with 0: 4 against Napoli. Today, against the lost hosts in their last match, the "Little Zebras" will not be easy at all, but they should shake off the big defeat and present themselves with dignity in Rome. According to our information, only Udoji is injured, and Nesterovski's participation is in doubt.
In 2018 - 2019 two identical victories for the hosts with 1: 0. In 2019 - 2020 again exchanged successes, but for the guests - 4: 0 for Roma and 2: 0 for Udinese. Last season, the "Wolves" made a double - with 1: 0 in Udine and 3: 0 on this field. With a little over 3.5 / 1 the hosts are reasonably determined as favorites, the tips are only three - 1, there is no goal and over 2.5 goals, for us the least risky is the top computer version based on the last two direct meetings and you have it we offer.
Roma are not convincing with their game
Here I will catch the words of the legendary Antonio Cassano.
According to him, Roma have been lucky so far. And it was time for him not to cover them anymore.
I made a reference immediately.
And I really saw the difference between the 9 points they won and the 7 who really deserved their game.
However, I do not understand exactly where this discrepancy comes from.
And I do not agree with Cassano that Jose Mourinho should have chosen what style to play Roma.
Well, they are currently 4th and the most created, and the least allowed goal positions.
These are very good indicators.
But the Wolves have already lost one game - in the last round against Verona.
Like Cassano, Mourinho himself explained at the press conference that Roma played terribly.
And the victory over Sassuolo, for example, with a goal in the last seconds was accidental.
Udinese is doomed against the big ones
Udinese took victories against relegation candidates such as Venice and La Spezia.
But the truth about them shone in the crushing 0-4 loss to Napoli.
Otherwise they scored 6 goals. One of which is from a penalty and three against weak Venice.
Forecast for Roma - Udinese
On the one hand, we have Roma, who for some reason are not convincing as a game. And they have a new commitment in Europe.
On the other is Udinese after a heavy home loss. And with the thought only of not being exposed again.
Well UNDER GOALS is my choice for prediction then.
