Roma vs Undinese Preview #108


After just recently playing just a few days ago Roma are back at it again playing on a short week as they prepare for yet another match in Serie A as they head back home to host 15th place Udinese despite the fact that the league table as this very moment it does seem like they will struggle this season but I don’t see them as Relegation favorites. Roma are coming into this game in great form with back to back Serie A wins against Benevento and Hellas Verona. Roma won the season Series against Undinese last season 5-0 over the two games winning 4-0 and 1-0 respectively. Roma have a very good track record against Undinese being unbeaten in the last 11 games against their counterparts having won 9 out of 11. Undinese haven’t won against Roma since 2012. This is a team that Roma do very well against given Roma’s great form they find themselves in I feel that Roma will get a quite confrontable victory they are RED HOT and Dzeko is scoring goals for fun this season once again having scored 5 games in Serie A allready this season having scored in double figures twice. Roma are also home a place where they perform quite well. He is a player that will be a handful for Udin to control and much like Verona and Benevento they don’t have that player that can counter the Roma attack. They have been able to score this season but their defense is suspect having conceded 11 goals this season as well as losing games against poor sides such as S.P.A.L and Chievo with their only win coming against Genoa who also are very poor I think they will find it very difficult in this match. During the last two games Roma made several adjustments to their team Eusebio Di Francesco made massive changes in their last two games that had a big role in the victory’s. I’m curious to see how they will lineup in this one  really don’t know what to expect. I really liked the inclusion of Lorenzo Pellegrini in the starting 11 and I hope he continues to start games he really fueled the attack with Radja Nainggolan out in the last game. Edin Dzeko will be the key to game he has proven that he can score quite easily still and I think he would continue to bang them in Serie A the firepower will just be too much as I see Roma as big winners again with Napoli, Milan and Chelsea upcoming it will be important for Roma to stay in good form the tactics of Di Francesco the key the last few games I see that being a major factor once again Alisson and the defense have been class so far this season as Roma in not letting in many goals this season it will take a very good player to find the back of the net in this game something I feel Undinese is without Roma to win third game in a Row they just are a class above.
