Stadium: Olimpico (Rome)
AS Roma dropped their first points of the season last weekend when they lost away to Verona. Will Jose Mourinho’s side manage to avoid their losing streak and outplay Udinese on home soil? There are several betting options at once.
Roma must be tired at some point
The Giallorossi have played the most matches of any team in Serie A. In addition to the league encounters, the Romans also had to play twice against Trabzonspor of Turkey in the Conference League qualifiers. The more surprising was José Mourinho’s side’s winning streak of 6 wins in 6 games. That winning streak had to come to an end at some point.
It was interrupted in the 4th matchday. Roma play host to Verona, the team that had just changed their coach. The Giallorossi scored towards the end of the first half but conceded three goals in the second half. The result was 2-3. What else could it be but the result of fatigue?
Udinese take a severe blow
Monday’s encounter between Udinese and Napoli in Udine was expected to be anything but a dramatic defeat for the home side. However, Luca Gotti’s side was held to four goals despite a torrid start to the game. And yet, the Neapolitans were still in England on Thursday, where they secured a hard-fought 2-2 draw with Leicester in the Europa League group stage. Udinese’s dismal failure. Will the coaching staff have enough time to figure out what happened?
History of head-to-head encounters
Roma have won four of their last five matches against Udinese.
Expert Betting Tips
Udinese received a severe blow after a devastating loss to Napoli. Roma, on the other hand, received a sobering setback when they lost to Verona. The Giallorossi will surely go into the upcoming game with maximum concentration. Whether Udinese will have enough time to recover, however, is doubtful.
