Italy Serie A — 27 November 2012

Lazio vs Udinese will be played tonight at 20.45 in the Stadio Olimpico, Rome. This is an important match for both sides as Lazio have a chance of closing the gap from most teams as only Napoli managed a win from the teams that are ahead of them in the table. Lazio started the season strongly as they managed a string of wins but they passed through a bad match that made them lose ground from the top three spots. With a win today they would only be two points away from the third spot that would enable them to participate in next year’s Uefa Champions League.

On the other hand Udinese also need a win for various reasons. First of all they need to win to waive off the disappointment of getting knocked out from the Europa League in midweek. They also need the win to start climbing the table as they started the season in a disappointing way. A win today would lift the spirits of the Udinese clan and would also lift them to an important eight place.

I expect this match to be balanced but enjoyable with several goal scoring opportunities for both sides. That said I believe that Lazio’s home advantage will be pivotal for them to edge the win in tonight’s encounter.
