Serie A has five games taking place on Sunday, and one of those is this one, where Roma host Udinese. The home side started very slowly, but have broken into the top half and now have their sights on the top six. While Udinese are above the relegation zone, just, but only have one win from 12 games so far, with a lot of draws along the way.Roma Form Guide
Roma have five wins on the board from their first 12 games, but that only tells part of the story. They won just one of their first six, but have now won four of their last six, things are getting better, and I still think we will see them move further up the table in the coming weeks. The top six is the aim, and despite that dreadful start, they are only two points off it, and could move into the top six if things go their way this weekend.
In their most recent league game, Roma were held to a draw, but it was a good point as it came away at Lazio. Before that, they won 2-1 at home to Lecce and were narrowly beaten 1-0 by league leaders Inter Milan. They're also in the Europa League, where they have won three of their first four games.Udinese Form Guide
Draws have been the theme of the season so far for Udinese, good enough to take points, but not really good enough to win games. They've won one of 12, drawn eight and lost three. That's given them 11 points, which puts them in 16th position, two places and two points above the relegation zone.
In the league, they are now six games unbeaten, five of them being draws and one win, their only win. But it was an impressive one, they won 1-0 away at AC Milan, a side challenging for the league title, and more of that is what we need to see from this team.Match Prediction
Udinese have a knack of taking points, but not winning games, while Roma are getting better and better as time goes on. I am taking Roma to continue that run and win this game, taking another three points to aid their push for the top six.
