Roma - Udinese Betting Preview: Watertight Giallorossi to get back to winning ways at the Stadio Olimpico

Having conceded just two goals at home all Serie A season, Al Hain-Cole expects Rudi Garcia's men to win to nil against a Zebrette side that struggle to find the net on the road
Roma will be hoping to bounce back from just their second Serie A defeat of the season when they welcome Udinese to the Stadio Olimpico on Monday.

Rudi Garcia’s men lost 1-0 away to Napoli last time out but are 4/9 (1.44) favourites with William Hill to bounce back with a victory this evening.

Having lost nine and won just three of their 14 league games on the road this season, the Zebrette are 15/2 (8.50) outsiders to become the first away team to walk away from this ground with all three points this campaign.

The hosts were held to a 0-0 draw by Inter Milan in their last game on home soil, and you can get odds of 3/1 (4.00) on this one finishing all square this evening.

Having seen Juventus pick up a late away win over Genoa on Sunday, i Giallorossi now find themselves 17 points adrift of top spot and without any real hope of winning the Scudetto this season.

However, with Napoli also in action this evening, Garcia’s team will be desperate for a win in order to maintain their grip on second place and an automatic place in next season’s Champions League.

Considering they have failed to find the net in either of their last two games, the capital side will need to build from the back if they are to get back to winning ways, and can draw confidence from a defence that has let in just two league goals all season in front of their own fans.

With just two goals conceded in their last eight league games, Roma must be backed to keep a clean sheet against a visiting team that have failed to find the net in three of their last five league matches on the road, scoring just a goal per game on the road so far.

A bet on the hosts to win to nil would have paid out in nine of the hosts’ 13 home games in Serie A so far, and must be safe at odds of 11/10 (2.10) against a team that have failed to score in each of their last seven away league defeats.
