Lazio vs Udinese: Form Guide

Storm clouds have started to gather over Formello in recent weeks as Lazio’s form has started to crash, with the team suffering three consecutive defeats across Serie A and the Champions League, losing to Fiorentina 2-1, Milan 1-0 and Bayern Munich 3-0.

The results have again seen Maurizio Sarri’s future in the Italian capital thrown into doubt, with media reports listing a number of possible replacements for the 65-year-old. The situation caused Lazio to release an official statement, reiterating their trust in the tactician.

Lazio’s poor run leaves them ninth in the Serie A table after 27 games, sitting 11 points behind fourth place Bologna heading into the 28th matchday of the season, making Champions League qualification unlikely at this stage.

Udinese haven’t managed to find their footing all season and sit 17th in the league table, hovering dangerously close to the relegation zone. The Friulian outfit sit just a point behind 18th place Hellas Verona, pilling heaps of pressure on the squad.

Gabriele Cioffi’s side have picked up just one win in their last nine games, beating Juventus 1-0 back in February.

When these two teams met back in January, Lazio edged out a 2-1 win over Udinese after goals from Luca Pellegrini and Matias Vecino, which left Walace’s equaliser to be a consolation goal.
