Team News

  • Hernanes may not be back in time for the match against Udinese, so Mauri will take his spot in central midfield.
  • Lulic will play on the left wing, so Radu will play at left back in behing him.
  • Also Konko and Dias will be unavailable, so Petkovic will have to make changes to his defence, with Cavanda and Ciani taking their places.
  • Guidolin has some of his men back in contention, but key players like Muriel, Benatia, Pinzi, Basta and Lazzari will still be unavailable.
  • Therefore, Coda, Allan, Badu, Faraoni and Maicosuel should play from the start.
  • Pasquale and Armero are in competition for a spot on the left flank.

Prediction

  • After occupying a Champions League spot for a few weeks, Lazio have slowed the pace down and are now 5 points adrift Fiorentina, just outside the European qualification places, tied on points with Roma. The Biancocelesti will need to improve their away performances, whilst keeping up the good work at home.
  • Udinese are undefeated in their last 6 Serie A matches, but have only collected 4 points in their last 4. After being knocked out of the Europa League, Guidolin can now focus completely on the domestic league.
  • Both coaches be missing some key players from their usual XI, but while Guidolin has shown that his substitutes can influence a game, Petkovic's, meanwhile, have failed to impact games when they have been called upon. This game provides a challenge for two of the best strikers in Serie A, Di Natale and Klose, expect to see them both assert their dominance from the kick off.

  • y klose dint take penalty..??

  • Last game of 14th week, Lazio match on Tuesday... Draw. 1-1

  • I think Lazio gonna win not because Udinese is a bad team but because they have a lot of important players out due to injury. Lazio plays at home and has no important loss.

  • Lazio win 3-0.....

  • Lazio will win unless udinese is lucky enough to do a hold-up
