Serie A AS Roma vs Udinese 9/23/2021 Prediction and Match Preview

These two teams are coming off bad losses over the weekend, as Roma lost to Verona on the road and Udinese met a huge loss to Napoli at home. Both teams have looked really good so far in the season, excluding their recent losses, and this should be a very exciting match on Thursday.

Roma (3 wins, 1 loss, 0 draws) saw their winning streak come crashing down on Saturday, when they lost to Verona by 3-2 on the road. They actually took the lead at the 36th minute of that match, but their opponents took the lead for themselves with goals at the 49th and 54th minute. Roma pulled even at the 58th minute after a Verona own goal, but they conceded another goal just 5 minutes later to eventually lose by 3-2. That was their first loss of the season, after starting with 6 wins in all competitions. They have kept just 2 clean sheets in 7 matches so far, but they have scored 2+ goals in all 7 matches. Roma are sitting at the 5th spot of the Serie A with 9 points, scoring 11 and conceding 5 goals in the process.

Udinese (2 wins, 1 loss, 1 draw) are coming into this match after a really bad 4-0 home loss against Napoli. Their opponents were clinical in the first half, taking a two-goal lead by the 35th minute. Udinese conceded two more goals in the second half and there was nothing they could take from that match. They had conceded just 2 goals in their first 3 matches of the season (including a 2-2 draw at home against Juventus in the opener), but their defense looked in shambles against Napoli. Even so, Udinese are sitting at the 9th spot of the league table with 7 points, scoring 6 and conceding 6 goals so far.

Roma vs Udinese. Roma easily won both matches against Udinese last season, with clean sheets, beating them by 1-0 on the road and by 3-0 at home. They have now won 4 of the last 5 matches against Udinese, keeping clean sheets in all 4 wins. Both teams will be eager to wash off the bad losses, but Roma should have the upper hand here.
