Udinese vs Roma Preview and Prediction – April 14, 2024

Two teams with contrasting positions in the Serie A standings will clash on Sunday, each with distinct objectives.

Match Preview

Udinese, the hosts, are perilously close to the relegation zone, sitting just two points above it. Conversely, Roma finds themselves three points adrift of the top four with only seven matches left in the season.

Udinese faced a 2-1 defeat against league leaders Inter Milan in their previous match, enduring 23 shots while managing only one on target.

They’ve garnered just one point from their last three matches and secured only one victory in their past seven league games.

To compound their struggles, Udinese has only won two out of their last 13 Serie A matches, enduring five draws and six defeats in that span.

Udinese’s woes extend to their home ground, where they’ve failed to win any of their last seven league games and have emerged victorious in only one out of 16 home fixtures this season.

On the other hand, Roma enters Sunday’s clash following a 1-0 victory over AC Milan in the first leg of their UEFA Europa League quarter-final.

This victory is part of Roma’s impressive run, having lost just one of their last 12 matches across all competitions, securing eight wins and three draws in the process.

In Serie A, Roma is unbeaten in seven games, clinching five wins and two draws in their last outings, with their sole defeat occurring in their previous 11 matches.

Head-to-Head:

Roma won the previous encounter between these teams with a 3-1 scoreline, marking their fifth victory in the last seven Serie A meetings with Udinese.

Udinese has triumphed in just two of their last 10 league encounters with Roma, with their notable 4-0 victory at home in 2022.

Team News & Updates:

Gerard Deulofeu, Enzo Ebosse, and Florian Thauvin are sidelined with injuries for Udinese, while Roma will miss Sardar Azmoun, Dean Huijsen, and Rasmus Kristensen.

Prediction & Analysis:

Head-to-head statistics favor Roma, who won the reverse fixture 3-1 in November and have won five of their last seven Serie A encounters against Udinese.

Additionally, Roma has lost only two of their last 10 league meetings with Udinese.

Considering Udinese’s struggles at home, having secured only one victory all season, Roma should be favorites to extend their unbeaten run.

We predict both teams will score, but Roma’s superior firepower should see them outscoring Udinese and securing a valuable away win.
