This can be described as quit good season form Lazio so far, after 20 games in Serie A they are at third position at the table, 11 points behind leaders Napoli and with one match less played, Lazio are playing their great football and they must keep the rhythm, in last seven games this team celebrated five times and got two draws, most important is that they are having consistency in their game and now just must keep it that way.
In 21st round of Serie A will face with Udinese at home and hosts seems like a team which is capable to achieve their 14th victory in this campaign, with 53 goals they are most effective team in league and i believe that can beat Udinese here at home, in last six encounters with them celebrated five times with one draw and now are again favorites with a reason, in last match at this field in last February celebrated with one goal margin but here should score couple more goals.
Lazio were solid in Europe and will continue their journey in Europa league in February, until then must secure their current position in league, in Italian Cup will play in semi finals and this was really good season in all competitions, now victory is expected is expected from hosts tonight. Midfielder Di Gennaro (1/0) and forward Immobile (19/20) are injured and won't be in the squad.
Udinese on the other side were solid so far, they are coming to this game after two draws against Spal and Chievo and this team simple doesn't seems capable to confront to Lazio which are playing their best football in last couple of seasons. Udinese are at 9th position at the table and that seems satisfying, to reach something higher must show improving especially in defense.
Visitors didn't impressed with their defensive skills and on this trip i just don't see how can prevent opponents from scoring, in last three duels with Lazio they even failed to score, tonight i don't believe that will have much success in offense.
Udinese are decent team but in front of the are opponents against whom small number of teams in Italy can play, off course guests won't give up and will try to avoid defeat but judging by current form of Lazio that will be almost impossible mission. Defenders Widmer (10/2), Adnan (13/0), midfielder Behrami (10/0) and forward Lagagna (18/7) will all remain sidelined due to injuries.
Lazio should win this duel without much troubles, this seems to be their season and Udinese must show some remarkable skills to confront to them, everything except convincing victory of Lazio would be a surprise tonight.
