Roma and Udinese will both be looking to return to winning ways in Serie A when they meet at the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday at 7:45pm (UK time).
The hosts’ six-match winning streak across all competitions was ended at the weekend, as they suffered an unexpected 3-2 away loss at Verona. Prior to the defeat, Jose Mourinho’s men had enjoyed a handful of comfortable victories, smashing Fiorentina and Salernitana in the Serie A, and CSKA Sofia 5-1 in the Europa Conference League. Roma are now back on home soil where they are undefeated in 15 matches across all competitions. They have won all four competitive home fixtures this season, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Furthermore, the hosts have won four of their last five home meetings with Udinese in the Serie A, while keeping three clean sheets in the process.
Udinese have also suffered a setback with a humiliating 4-0 home loss against in-form Napoli on Monday. Prior to this defeat, Udinese were on a five-game unbeaten run across all competitions. Udinese currently lie ninth in the Serie A table, just two points behind fifth-placed Roma. Udinese did well to secure a 1-0 victory at Spezia in their most recent Serie A away game, which was actually their first league victory on the road in three visits. The bad news is that Udinese have won just two of their last 10 visits to the Stadio Olimpico.
Will Roma extend their winning streak at the Stadio Olimpico to five games? Or will Udinese make it back-to-back away victories in the Serie A?
