Lazio Held to Goalless Draw Against In-Form Udinese

Neither side could break the deadlock in a balanced and intense clash between Lazio and Udinese.

The Biancocelesti wanted to show a good response against an in-form Bianconeri following their frustrating 2-2 draw with Sturm Graz, but they failed to get off the ground in front of their adoring home fans. 

Udinese have been one of the surprises of this Serie A season and looked impressive away from home, putting in a solid shift defensively and limiting the Roman club’s chances in midfield. 

Lazio saw more of the ball in the clash, 55% to 45%, but lost the xG battle to Udinese, putting up 0.79 to 0.68. They completed more passes than their Friulian opposition, 385 to 318, but took less shots overall, eight to 12.

Both goalkeepers, Ivan Provedel and Marco Silvestri, were the stars of the show at the Stadio Olimpico and ensured that neither side could find an advantage, leaving things to end all square in Rome.

Whilst it was a decent point for Lazio, the injury suffered by Ciro Immobile has caused the team anxiety ahead of a busy few weeks.
